Polo came along for the ride- at least it wasn't a trip to the vet, maybe he will like riding in the car better next time.
When we got to the island, we found out we couldn't get near the fort, there were policemen everywhere, even standing about every 20 meters along the woods, facing the road. We were joking that the president must be there - and it turns out we may have been right, it was the anniversary of the liberation of Zaporosia from the Nazis!
So Victor drove around a bit and we walked down to the river and enjoyed nature there.
