More Adriatic exploring.

One of the most beautiful alcoves we played in.

On the way back over to Hvar we stopped at one of the most picturesque little coves ever, Uvala Mala Stiniva. Nice and secluded we could play around the boat or swim/kayak along the rocky shore to a small sandless stone beach.

All ladies on deck.
Our boat from shore – thanks for the photo Mark.

The town of Jelsa was the stop for the night and Ivan ferried us into the dock for a look around. Rose & Mandy liked the idea of piloting the dingy into shore.

New skippers for the dingy.
Mandy in charge.
Jelsa on the island Hvar.
Always a tunnel to get you somewhere.
No shortage of gelato.

Short ride over to Stari Grad for the obligatory walk around town and I found a hill with a cross on – always worth the effort.

Looking down on Stari Grad.
Cross atop the hill Glavica marking a prehistoric fortress.
Time for a break.

Found a new toy to play with on Milna and a good walk along the rocky coastline.

Playing on the swings.
Plenty of quayside in Milna.
The fisherman (with a football scarf).
Takes time for the old to fade away.

Last night was spent close to home port because of the risk of bad weather. Marin went ashore and surprised us by bringing back the “owner”, Andrea. The boat had been originally commissioned by her grandfather and passed down the line to her. Marin then admitted that they were really husband & wife and I for one was really pleased that the whole operation was a family business.

Owner & skipper duo, Andrea and Marin.
Back in dock where we started from.
The best crew EVER – Andrea, Evona, Ivan, Skipper Marin & Mario.

That was truely a fantastic bucket list experience and everyone was left thinking whether there would be a return visit …………?
