A Hop, Skip and many Jumps

The walk continued along the Peljesac Peninsula of Croatia with another personal best of 75+ floors and a new badge from Fitbit: 6 miles climbing steadily most of the way. And was it worth it! Views that surpassed the one before of the walled city of Korcula, the straits below and the rocky cliffs above.



Along the way came a much needed respite at Maria’s for lunch, sampling her family’s home made sour cherry grappa, red and white wine, melt in your mouth Dalmatian specialty of Pasticada, a beef stew cooked for two days with carrots, plums and red wine over a bed of gnocchi. All accompanied by a salad picked that morning in a grappa vinaigrette.


Along the way we passed the medieval city of Ston with high stone walls over 4 miles long built in the early 14th century. Second to Hadrian’s wall in England and a miniature of the Great Wall of China though no less intimidating.
 

Dinner that night overlooking the Adriatic featured mussels, oysters and sea bass harvested that afternoon. I am getting awfully spoilt with the cuisine and getting back to reality is going to be impossible.

      

Adios till next time!
