On the Way to Zadar we took time out to visit Krka National Park. We spent a few hours hiking around and taking in the impressive scenery. We had planned to go swimming in one of the lakes, surrounded by waterfalls but the weather turned cold just as we arrived and the idea lost its charm.
Of course it was hard to resist the siren song of this particular bathing beauty:
I didn't realize they made aqua-diapers for grown men.
Zadar was one of my favorite stops on our trip. It was also our final leg of the Croatian adventure.
We got some nice weather again while in Zadar and went for a swim at a semi-sandy beach. The beach was close to a huge diving platform that was about as high as our previous cliff jumping excursion. So we hung out there for a bit with some local youngsters.
Zadar was also the setting for some good Euro 2008 soccer viewing. We watched the game at a local bar/bakery and then cruised the town to observe all the merry-making and revelry that came along with a Croatian victory.
Zadar was also home to the sea organ which was a fascinating landmark. Basically a huge musical instrument that is played by the ocean tides.
