Oct. 12: Paddled from Ruskamen beach towards Podgora. Weather was good. Calm and easy.
Stopped at the Macic Restaurant for a morning coffee.
The scenery is breathtaking. So beautiful.
Majestic mountains and clear blue water. Croatia is a pearl. As beautiful as the Med but much, much cheaper. Food is good and you get a great portion for reasonable money.
Paddled further and took a 30 min stop at Beach Gama. No currents or wind to deal with.
Finally we reach Podgora and set up tent. Later Trygve and I find a small restaurant and enjoy the sunset and a good meal. No more tin can cold food - at least tonight.
Oct. 13: Today we paddle a breathtaking 50 km. Every muscle is sore, but a great day along the Croatian coastline.
Leaving Podgora, a beautiful village in an area called Igrana appears as we round a corner.
Paddle 1.5 hours and take a coffee in Drvenik, a silent village out of a postcard. The waiter worked for the Norwegian, Bergen-based shipping company called Seatrans.
This coastline is great. The water is clear. The people are super. And the food is great. We paddle all the way to Komarna. Find a nice beach and pitch our tent.
Our tent is just at the bend. Hiked up to the crest to see the sunset. Peaceful. The way our world should be. That is, if we take care of each other.
Peace. Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
