All about boats

Today was all about the Adriatic and island hopping with of course a strenuous hike in between. A short boat ride at sunrise brought us to the cobbled streets of Korcula to explore what many consider to be the fabled home of Marco Polo. This scenic medieval town fell under Venetian control in 1254, supposedly the year of Polo’s birth.

  
  

Our hike took us far above the pretty town of Vela Luka and past Vela Spila or Big Cave. Prehistoric remains of two adults make it an important marker of human activity from Neolithic times. We walked through vineyards and groves of ripening olive trees and were treated to the clear greens and blues of the Adriatic.


  

A Croatian feast awaited us at Tony’s 300 year old farm and vineyard and another culinary experience that left me sated.


  

A wild storm moved in just as our wooden sailboat left Stracincica Bay for Hvar and the three hour ride cresting the swells and troughs of the Adriatic was soon forgotten by the magical sight of Hvar Town and the truffle risotto, sea bass sashimi and beef tartare at diVino Wine Studio on the waterfront.



  

Adios till next time!
