The land of lavender

Day 22
Hvar, Croatia

We still haven’t figured out what holiday it was today in Croatia — the banks, markets and some sights were closed — although it didn’t make much of a difference. After a great seafood dinner last night, we slept in late and then headed into Hvar Town, famous for its outlying fields of lavender, for some brunch. It was, unsurprisingly, another beautiful day here.

We walked to the 15th century Franciscan monastery, which overlooks a shady cove of the Adriatic and whose bell tower was built by a well-known family of stone masons from our previous destination, Korcula.

With the weather near perfect, we changed into our bathing suits and made our way to a sheltered cove just a couple minutes from our apartment. The pier made for a great place to put down a towel, get some sun and relax away the afternoon.

We’ve lounged through the rest of the day — Burt is catching up on reruns of Puna Kuca (Full House) and I’ve finally finished reading Around the World in 80 Days (spoiler alert: he makes the trip successfully!)

Our ferry leaves for our final destination in Dalmatia, Split, tomorrow at 7:30 a.m.
