Miles on land and sea…

5 Oct

We have a little catching up to do!  We left Dubrovnik on Saturday after finding the Hole in the Wall.  Of course, on the other side was a card game that looked like it had been going on since the 50’s! MSC_8343

We also visitied the War Photos museum and seeing the images from the 1990-92 war that broke up Yugoslavia in to the sovereign republics that include Croatia.  It’s a remarkable story that is worth learning about if you are so inclined.IMG_3592  We headed north to Mali Ston, the oyster capital of Croatia and a lovely fishing village. IMG_3594 By nightfall we reached Split and got aboard the s/v Wild Wind, our home for the week.  Our first stop was the beautiful village of Stari Grad on the Island of Hvar.  A picturesque exactly as you would expect.MSC_8391  I was lucky to find this gentleman repairing his fishing net.  Kind of him to allow me to photograph him working. MSC_8377 The wifi is spotty so we’ll post when we can!  Thank you for the comments, we love to hear from you.  We don’t get much news from back home and on one here has mentioned Donald Trump!

    Micahel, love the pic of old fisherman repairing net. And the card game pic is great too – what a great backdrop to their game! Seems like a magical trip – say hi to Marci. Can’t wait to see rest of photos when you guys get back. Safe travels…. S

    Your photography skills bloom more and more with each post-thank you for the delightful images! Let’s talk when you return-I may want to retrace your exact steps from this trip because that area has been on my bucket list for a long time. Sending love ❤
