Hi guys!!!
Today as I said yesterday was THE beach day.  We stayed on the beach in the town where we are staying (Dramalj).  The weather was great all day long and the water was even better.
While we were not swimming or lying next to the water, we were playing UNO cards in which I (Vlad) got thrashed every time.  We played 3 sets of 10 games and Roxy's mum won 2 sets and Roxy won 1.  But I know the following saying is correct:  " Who has luck in cards has no luck in love". :-)  Roxy's dad didn't even try to join us.  You can just imagine how I felt when 2 women team up against me and all those "Draw 4" and "Draw 2" cards!!!  Anyway, in about a week Roxy will have nobody to team up against and then I might have a chance. :-)
The other important thing that I was doing today was putting Roxy's parents under water.  That was great fun!  And when you have that kind of fun somebody always gets hurt. ;-)  Well this time it was me and Roxy's dad.  He scratched his right shin on a rock in the water and I stepped on sea urchin (sea creature that has many spikes).  Luckily I had water shoes but one of the spikes got me from the side of the shoe and right into my small toe.  After some needle digging in my small toe by Roxy the thorn was out and I was all good.  (I know none of you feel sorry for me anyway :-P)
But the HIGHLIGHT of the day was parasailing (hanging in a parachute and being pulled by the speed boat) (see photos).  That was soooo cool.  The view was great and I wish I could have a camera up there with me to show you what I mean.  Roxy was the one saying: "C'mon let's do it" and when we got there she was not so keen anymore.  We even managed to get Roxy's mum with us up there.  She was the least keen from three of us.  Needless to say that Roxy's dad wasn't even thinking of joining us. :-)
The ride included flying high and going as low as our feet touching the water.  When the ride was over we just landed in the water and got into the speed boat who took us back to shore.  It was an unbelievable experience!
Around 4:30pm we went home prepared some food (should I say Roxy and her mum - I am very spoiled this holiday :-) ), we ate and we are just relaxing now.
Apart from going to church tomorrow we have no other plans.  We'll see how we go. :-)
We have seen more than we thought we will see already - so everything from now on is a bonus.
Hope all of you are doing well...
