It was a beautiful early morning when we set out to get on a bus that would take us to the coast of the Adriatic Sea. We would stay in Zadar for a couple of weeks. We had my husband's ailing mother to visit and as well we would try to get some beach time and sight seeing as often as we could. Zadar is a very popular tourist spot in Dalmatia. The ancient narrow streets are crowded with tourists all day and all night. We're here in peak season but hope to get around as best as we can.
Like many cities in Croatia Zadar is filled with architecture and beautiful art and sculptures all over the place. Every street and corner are filled with something to take in. All the doors and windows are decorated with art of some sort or many flowers.
The famous church and clock in the town Square that we can watch in Canada or anywhere in the world on the Live Cam is a little quiet during the day but is bustling at night.
One of the most famous churches in Zadar and all of Croatia is this round church called St. Donat built in the 9th Century in the Byzantine architecture style.
At last we reach the Adriatic Sea, the source of so much pride for Croatia and what they fought so hard for in the war of 1992. It is spotted with many beautiful islands all down the coast, a couple of which we hope to see.
And let's not omit another pint of the best beer from the North to the South of Croatia.
It will beat the heat anytime and right now it's scorching.
