3 months in Croatia
01.09.2013: I am aware our tracking map opposite is starting to look like a 3 year old on too many lollies has been drawing our route.

Knez is perfect – 23 NM away, and we have the wind on o... » Mehr...39 Einträge (18197 Wörter) 189 Fotos 0 Kommentare

We have had an amazing time here but the foggy mornings (and sometime... » read more20 posts (22695 words) 185 photos 0 comments

Bailey and I couldn’t resist sitting on deck to take another round of photos of the Hitchhiking Inukshuk at Indian Harbour — k, well, I took the photos while Bailey directed. One of these time... » read more2 posts (454 words) 4 photos 0 comments
