The ride back from Trogir to Split was pleasantly punctuated with a stop at an old mill, turned restaurant and hotel, for Croatian snacks and wine tasting. While strolling around the grounds these swans decided to stop by with greetings for the group.
The grand promenade, seen here in the approach to Split, the second largest city in Croatia, and the largest city on the Dalmatian coast is a mix of modern and ancient buildings. Yes, the canine dalmatians are from this area and are so named because they were owned by a group/tribe called dalmatians. There are approximately 1,200 islands off the coast of Croatia, about 160 are inhabited. The third largest island, Brac, is know for the magnificent stones used to construct all the buildings across Croatia, and in some other places, like the White House in Washington, D.C.
