Have recently spent a couple of days with the lively company of Vivienne & Alistair 'Largo Star' plus Shani & Dave 'Scarlett' ,not forgetting their adorable Bonaparte.....we all wintered at Marina di Ragusa.
'Scarlett' has already sailed up to Venice, so was able to pass on valuable info.
Definitely too much 'tchin tchin'! but had a great time.
We had organised a RDV on the island of ZIRJE, so all tied back to the rocks in the crystal clear waters of Mala Stupica....now we need a few quiet days to recover!
PS. I WILL NOT GO INTO THE AUSTRALIAN DEFEAT BY THE LIONS..HUMILIATING!
I really wanted to fly the big kangaroo flag!
LOVED THE WIMBLEDON FINALS...BRAVO 'la francaise' FOR THE LADIES SINGLES! What a match for the Men's ....so exciting!
KRKA river PHOTOS ....SEE SLIDESHOW NEXT PAGE 'Photos'...
Forgot to say..there are many boats around, sailing and motor.... we are July!
But, cannot complain as only us and one other yacht in our bay tonight, just perfect, with lovely views over to the church steeple, all lit up for summer.
Dave & Shani told us all about the trip up the KRKA RIVER to visit the National Park and water falls. So here we are today, anchored off the reeds in sticky mud at SKRADIN, surrounded by beautiful green & rocky surroundings.
Yesterday, after motoring by the big town of SIBENIK, we had the privilege to spend the night all alone anchored in green green water near ZATON, a tiny village, peaceful setting, at the head of a long inlet....great holding in mud (chain and anchor in a terrible state this am!)
After winding our way up towards a huge shallow lake, we then continued to motor up this
enchanting river.....a very special experience, many tight turns, high cliffs, two 40 ft high bridges to pass underneath...they looked incredibly close to the top of our mast...we need 22 metres..room to spare! OOFF!
A pair of white swans came to visit us earlier showing off their five siblings .... I think they have the habit to visit each boat for tit bits!
