Mjlet, Croatia




Just got back from Croatia. Not a working trip this time, it was a holiday in Mjlet. I had never heard of it before but it's an island off the Croatian coast north of Dubrovnic. 

Took quite a while to get there. A three & a half hour flight to Dubrovnic airport, a 45 minute taxi to the ferry, an hour and a half hour ferry trip & a 40 minute bus ride to the hotel. 
It was worth it with these views from our room's little balcony. The photos (not brilliant) are from my phone as I can't upload my camera photos to the laptop, can't find the wire thingy to do it. However you can still see how beautiful it is from these photos.




I spent ages just sitting watching the various boats moving around the harbour.



Every day there were boats berthing that were doing the Croatian island tours. 



I particularly liked to watch the daily ferry to Dubrovnic docking. It was in and out in about 10 minutes.

 Just look how clear the water is. You could see a lot of little fish but this camera wasn't good enough to pick them up.
The water was quite cool for swimming but not too bad once you were in a few minutes.

Hopefully I'll get my camera photos uploaded & show a few of the national park which was a couple of minutes walk from the hotel.

    1. It's the first time I've been to Croatia. I was there in about 1982 before the war when it was Yugoslavia & still communist. This time I was much further south and it is so beautiful.

Kitties!
