Croatia Dalmatian Coast


Today, I spend my last day in Croatia, eating ice cream and pizza. Taking cover in any shade I can find. The air is hot, the sun heats my skin. There are days in Seattle when I long for the sun, just an hour or two. I find myself now longing for the crisp Northwest air, and overcast sky. Is it possible that I will never be content, always wishing for something that I don't have. I am finding this heat unbearable. I bath in the clear blue Adriatic Sea all day, and mingle amongst the crowds at night. The cities are so vibrant at night, the hustle and bustle, people excited by the cool nights air. Dinner is eaten quite late, 9 or 10 pm, followed by a stroll and an ice cream. I feel very fortunate to have seen such a beautiful place, so much history, and culture. Last night I wandered the streets, set inside a medieval castel in Dubrovnik, a draw-bridge and all. The most magical thing I've ever seen. I will cherish these memories forever.
