Backroads: Dalmatian Coast. Good timing!

I have slipped a little this weekend on posting of photos.  In case my fellow hikers were wondering if I took pictures of just about EVERYTHING, here is proof...  I took my camera to the water with me, sat in the surf and let the waves wash over my legs...

Backroads: Dalmatian Coast. Walking around Split

More randomness!  Our Backroads tour ended in Split so I was alone at this point.  On my last full day in Croatia I decided to walk up the Marjan Hill.  What beautiful views!  There is a fortress of sorts at the very top which had views over the Adriatic and the nearby islands.  There was also a 13th century church which was closed up - I've no idea if it is open on certain days.  It was tiny-tiny.

I also saw a Dalmatian - the only one on I saw on the whole trip.

Backroads: Dalmatian Coast. Hiking on Hvar Island

Good morning!

My planned "one photo per day" on this blog is turning into a morning story telling.  Oops.  By the time I finally finish sorting the photos to share with the group, I will have shown most of them here!

A few weeks ago in Croatia we hiked part of the coastline of Hvar Island.  Such blue clear waters - just like all the other places we visited that week.  Our walk ended at a fabulous outdoor lunch, perhaps the best of the whole trip.

Backroads: Dalmatian Coast. Peljesac Peninsula hike

Good morning!  Today's photos are a few from the day of our hike on the Peljesac Peninsula. 

We had lunch with a view overlooking Korcula, and on our hike passed a number of abandoned houses and churches (although the graveyards were still being tended).

We even saw a massive yacht with its own helicopter pad (complete with helicopter).  Maybe he got lost looking for the Riviera?
