Nancy in Hvar, Croatia

Nancy has been writing about her summer travels. Celebrating 46 years of marriage, she and her husband Joe left the city of brotherly love and landed in Venice, Italy, to begin their journey. She is sailing the Mediterranean aboard Royal Clipper, and was kind enough to share her experience with us. Below are some excerpts from her blog. For her whole story you can visit her personal blog Nancy Near Philadelphia.


The next day found us anchoring just outside Hvar, Croatia, a lovely view to behold. Royal Clipper, for the most part, would anchor outside the harbors of these little ports, and would provide tender service to take us ashore. The tenders usually ran every half hour.


Hvar was a small place, but very pretty. Some folks from the ship took excursions that involved kayaking or bicycling. We chose to explore on our own. The "downtown" area was small and -- for once -- the church wasn't at the top of a hill!


…the sun was powerful. For the first half of the day, the cafes on the shady side of the square would be open and then midway through the day, as the sun moved, they would close and the ones on the opposite side would open. It was a fine system.


We found this Red Submarine amusing. It is a glass-bottom boat -- passengers go down inside to view what is going on in the sea. We had seen it first in Rovinj and when we got to Hvar, one of our friends exclaimed, "Oh, look! It's following us!" I thought it would be fun to take a ride, but didn't get the opportunity.


Goodbye, Hvar!
