Journal Part X:
Still had a very nice hike, but at the terrain became rougher and rockier, Mo decided that the snake thing was making her uneasy.
Last supper at the Rajna. Real calamari, almost too good looking to eat, but not quite.
This 100 foot high lime stone cave
marked our turn around point on our last hike in to Paklenica. If anything like this existed in the
Zadar Coat of Arms
One of the old gates to the city
We were ready to relax and enjoy the sites, the coast and the food.
The city was built on a short peninsula and at the end of the peninsula and city some modern designers build something called a sea organ.
Near the end of the walled city you pass Saint Donatus Church. This church was build around 900 BC on top of old Roman Columns from a previous occupation. After the church you come to promenade along the sea and build in to this promenade are steps and reeds that create an eerie beautiful sound as the sea rises and falls. Boats passing increase the amplitude of the waves and in turn the musical composition. The 35 tubes of the seas organ are build in to series of white stone steps that extend for about 150 ft along the shore line. Very mystical experience.
St. Donatus Church in Zada. The church is 1,100 years old, but I’m not sure how old the lady in the foreground is.
good deal of time walking around the city.
First class people and place watching.
The food, like all of
The coast of the Kornati Island National Park
This small restaurant just outside the old city wall was one of the best fish dinners we have ever had. Not a bad location.
In the AM
will be heading back to
