We are headed down from Split to Dubrovnik visiting many of the beautiful islands in between. Perfecting my anchoring (Captain under supervision according to Chris!)

Hello Blog. It’s been too long – what can I say? There have been plenty of adventures but I’ve neglected to record them. Hopeless but as ever, aiming to get back into the habit. Where better to start again than a 2 week sailing holiday from Dubrovnik to Split and back again. The boat – Marlera – a 2019 43’ Dufour. The intrepid sailors – my good friend Shirley and my lovely sister Jane joining for week 1. Andy B and his daughter Louise along with the Batty’s for week 2.

Another day in paradise …

A couple more days of cruising around the Adriatic. We visited Korkula – gorgeous walled city and then sailed into a small bay for the evening.

This morning we started the trek back to Dubrovnik … an early start

Captain P in charge!

… and here we are moored for the evening – beers on the boat!

Sailing in Croatia – on the move again!

Well … I totally failed to complete my Galapagos blog – lack of internet at the time and then busy catching up at home. Hopeless! Still … we’re off again, and this time Chris and I are

sailing from Dubrovnik up the coast. Very relaxed cruising in fine weather and light winds – all good practice for my very rusty yachtmaster skills!

Off line and truly in the wild, these islands are truly magical. Our first expedition from the Seaman (our home for 4 days) to San Cristobal.

Arriving on the first beach … intrepid explorers!

Here’s what we saw … many mocking birds

Our first mega land tortoise

A baby tortoise in our path – whose home is this anyway?
