WHERE DID I SLEEP LAST NIGHT? (the whole story)

I posted a story a month ago that contained no details. In Slovenia stealth camping is illegal, a fine of $200 is possible. Since I´ve been here I´ve only seen maybe 10 policemen in 5 weeks. But the name stealth implies, you are not suppose to be seen or heard. So if you get caught you weren´t practicing stealth camping. I haven´t stealth camped that much, some campgrounds have so many amenities: pool, bathrooms, showers, WiFi, and most of all people! why would stealth camp?
When you leave camp at 1pm to head to your 23 mile destination, no problem. Right?

I realized I wasn´t going to make it to Lake Bohinj. When you show up to camp in the evening, the best sites are taken. It´s best to arrive at like noon, you can get the choice site. Also, rushing to get somewhere, you miss a lot. So if you stealth camp, the next day you have lots of time to explore while you reach your destination.
I had been going down hill for quiet awhile, stopping often to cool my brakes. Checking the time, it´s 7pm, I start scoping out potential sites. I see one that looks interesting, I walk around some and see 2 places where I can sleep without needing to set up my tent. It´s Aug. 14 and the sky is suppose have comets and shooting stars all night. I pick out a perfect spot with a great view of the sky. I can here voices from town, that are close, so I wait till the sun goes down to set up. While walking around I spot what I think is a huge light. I wait till sunset and yep sure enough it´s a flood light for the building.

The pews are half logs, outside on the hillside next to the church. The inside of the church looks like an over sized roadside monument.
