We, along with our new Dutch tour group friends who insisted we join them in a 10am drink of Schnapps!, went off to a few island stops, beaches, a fjord with a bombed, sunken warship, coves and just magnificently beautiful blue water.
At some of these stops we dived off the boat into the amazingly clear, sparkling and buoyant water and loved every moment of it.
Our swim and lunch stop was at a really beautiful island with a cruel and sad history of being Goli Otok men's political prison which must have made the Russian Gulag’s seem almost tame
Another magnificent swim stop was in one of the coves of Sveti Grgur, an island which had been a women’s prison. A bit of a theme to this tour? We chatted with someone from a liveaboard ship that was also touring the area and discovered how lucky we were with the weather as the last weeks had been awful. Long may this sunshine continue!
That evening, after supper, we got an ice cream cone to wander around eating and, to Annie’s delight, there was a delicious Granadilla ice cream for her to enjoy!
