Split To Bol:

I’m sitting on the famous Zlatni Rat Beach on the island of Brac
Croatia. We took a ferry from Split to Supetar this morning then
road in a VERY hot and stinky bus across the island to Bol.
You know it is a stinky bus when every time we stopped to let
people on or off I was awaiting the fumes from the buses exhaust
to come in and overpower the stinky people!
Upon arriving to Bol we had to walk along the coast for about a
mile to reach the Zlatni Rat Beach.
It is a little fin that sticks out into the Adriatic off the island.
The water is very blue and so clear. I have never seen such water,
not even in Miami Beach. We pretty much had the beach all to ourselves
most of the day; the locals are starting to show up now, must be getting off
work and out of school. Have been watching sailboats and other small crafts
go by. The water itself is a bit warmer than up in Pula, but not by much.
The wind has really picked up in the last hour. We have moved up the beach
to seek a little windbreak from the trees where all the locals are
sitting. I have had enough sun for the day so I am back in the shadows of the
trees writing this. Colin is still out in the sun, and has already begun to
turn bright red. I should go flip him over soon and cook the rest of
him..LOL…Don’t want him too overdone.
Tomorrow we are off to Dubrovnik, via ferry if it is not too long of a
trip. We would rather avoid more bus travel, but the ferry ride might
be a good bit longer so we may opt for the bus. The weather has been great
today in the shade where I am it is 70 degrees and feels good to be in
shorts, t-shirt with flip flops on. Oh there was one nude bather, but sadly I
must report is was some old dude. We did get a good laugh out of that! Soon
we will be off to hike back to the catch the bus back to Supetar and ferry
back over to Split.

Until next time this is Judge signing off from Zlatni Rat Beach.
