Arriving at the Island of Osjak
Today we decided to go to the island of Proizd rather then get up super early at 4:30am and go to Orebic. The guys decided to head to Dubrovnik a day early as they wanted to go to some extra places and they were running out of time so we decided to all have lunch together first before they headed off to Dubrovnik and us to Proizd. We went to Cafe Wimbeldon and had some pizza, said goodbye to the guys, and then went to the little store to get some stuff for our day on the island.

Unfortunately when we got to the little port where the water taxi was we had just missed the last ferry to Proizd which was at 1:15pm and it was 1:25pm. Boo to that! Oh well, we decided to head to Osjak instead. It's a lot closer then Proizd and the water taxi was cheaper, only 20KN return.
Our little bay :)
Osjak is a little forested island that has a bath around the outside. There isn't really any "beaches" or none that we discovered, maybe we didn't walk far enough, but there were some nice places on the rocks where you could lay out. We did end up finding a great spot that had really smooth rocks that just lead into the water almost in a little "bay" so it was easy to get in and out of the water.

First the water was like a little pool and then it got deeper where you could actually swim. Just like yesterday, the water was amazing! Absolutley crystal clear and bright blue, not hot but not cold, just perfect.  The water is so nice and relaxing, probably what heaven would feel like. And when you're there, you think there is probably no other place in the whole wide World as great as that place. Well, atleast that's what I felt like!

The last ferry back to Vela Luka was at 6:30pm so for 5 hours we just chilled out.
Osjak Island!
Swam, sunbathed, swam, slept, ate some crisps, swam etc. Was very relaxing and a nice way to spend the day. We ended up being early for the water taxi so Andrew and I jumped off the dock while we waited which was really fun.

Back in Vela Luka, Ali and I went to a little internet cafe to check our e-mails etc, OK who am I kidding? Travbuddy for me obviously! Internet in Vela Luka is really expensive. Andrew, Nao, and Ali went out for dinner but I stayed back at the hostel and had some left over pizza and other food I had around. CSI was on tv which was awesome! Then I watched this movie called "I witness" which was about corruption in Mexico and was really good. After I just hung around in the kitchen with Andrew and this English couple that came to the hostel and chatted. Went to be around 1am.
