I was lucky to see some of the imperial eggs on exhibition in Dubrovnik several years ago and although the artefacts here were not imperial I was still amazed of all the details and beautiful enamel.
This one is for the captain...
... and this one for me (because of the frog - in translation the name of our village would be Froggville)
When we were walking through the pretty Piran the weather was still nice (Faberge exhibition was in the red house).
When we reached Krk, we decided to go into the cave called Biserujka (aka Pearl cave - people believe there are some pirate treasure hidden there). The weather got worse, so being under ground was even more pleasant than above.
Next day we took Heron out of the bay.
We only sailed a couple of miles to the next bay, weather got worse again so we stayed mostly inside the boat. I went rowing for a while and it was really nice, can't wait to do it again in nice weather. We returned to the bay in the evening and even saw couple of dolphins on the way.
Next day we drove around the island with car and ended in a beautiful town of Vrbnik, with tiny streets of stone houses, small doors, green porches and balconies...
The day ended with a delicious meal in one of Vrbnik restaurant, with a bottle of local wine Blatina, of course.
On Sunday we thoroughly cleaned the boat and drove home on early afternoon. And so it was again not a sailing holiday. I'm refusing to return to the boat until I have a warranty of a nice weather and some wind! There were enough weekends full of boat projects and rainy and cold days spent inside the boat.
