Fred and I arrived home yesterday at about 3:30. It is really great to be home. It always boggles my mind at how long it takes from waking up to walking in the door at home on the last day of a vacation. We got up at 6:30. So nine hours later, we were home. That is, of course, after a two hour drive to the airport a flight and a taxi from the airport here.Baska Voda
was a strange little town. Like I wrote before, almost completely touristy, devoid of any culture. The beaches were amazingly packed, which made lying on the sand not that appealing, however, we walked down the coast a bit the last day and found a spot that was not completely crowded. The water is nice, clear for the most part and safe. But the beaches are full of rocks. I bought a pair of beach shoes for 40 kuna
, which is about €5,50.
We drove through Omis
, which was another small, touristy town about twenty minutes away. It's situated in a way so that we had to drive through it five times on our way to and from different cities. It was good for a couple of hours and provided this nice view.
The last day, I finished my sock. I brought way too much sock yarn, which is a requirement for knitters. I have now cast on the second for that pair as well as another sock in a slightly different pattern, which I hope will help me get the second sock done in a timely manner.
The weather here is overcast with a little chill in the air, a far cry from the sun and heat of Croatia. Would I recommend Croatia? Absolutely. Several of the cities (Split, Zadar
) are really wonderful and well worth taking time to explore. Zagreb was okay, but more for another trip. We might do Istria
on another trip combined with a couple of islands that we missed this time around. Traveling up and down the coast was easy and beautiful, although traffic got a little backed up once or twice and sometimes we got behind some people who enjoyed driving very slowly. We had to wait a while until we were past the bends in the road and traffic going the other way was clear so that we could pass.
I'll try to get pictures posted to a link in the next day or two.
How beautiful...the green colors! Oh and Croatia ain't bad either!
From the pictures you have posted it seems like Croatia is a beautiful place. Can't wait to see the pictures you will post later.
