It may not be the traditional Croatian prep, but the same that I used in Mexico all last summer. Butter, lime, herbs and lots of garlic. The fish are lining up at the fish market now waiting to get in my pans!

Yes, it was good. The daily market is wacky, busy and oh so close. Follow the cats. Photo: Diane Huntress

Beautiful days on the Adriatic. Split from the pier.

Reflecting on the view of Union Station, I'm kind of leaning this way. Calm, peaceful, bright. Split, Croatia. Thank you!

Valentine’s Day in Croatia, too!

These locks have a great view of the Adriatic.

Heart of the Croatian Culture!

Well worth the two mile walk to Bene, on the adriatic at the north end of Marjan, a recreational area and urban park created by Diocletian, oh, about 1700 years ago!

Saturday on the Riva. Arguably one of the finest pedestrian zones in the world. And, no shuttle buses!

Endless cafes. All full when the sun comes out. Frankly, Croatia may be more outdoor-oriented than Colorado.

Fine Art in Split. Like “Insight”, a 1970 work by Jakov Budesa

Split has a beautiful Museum of Fine Arts. We'll return next week for an important photographic installation of one photographer's work here in the 70's.

ReAle. A delicious Italian IPA hiding out in Croatia like the rest of us!

As good an IPA as you can find! This from Italian craft brewer Birra del Borgo by way of the Italian Cheese deli about 30 meters from our apartment in Split, Croatia. A very fine beer! Photo: Diane Huntress
