After our Tuscan trip with my parents, we took a day to get regrouped and geared up for a trip to Croatia. We were able to rent a big van so that we could all fit in one vehicle. With Nick driving we made our way down the Croatian coastline. First stop, Zadar.
Zadar has a really cool solar powered changing light display every evening called “Greeting to the Sun” and a hauntingly beautiful sea organ that is soothing enough to put my dear old Dad to sleep on a warm Croatian afternoon.
The waves push the air up through the holes of the organ creating sound.
Our accommodations. Not five star but it was beach front property. And a shot of our big trusty van!

Zadar was beautiful. White stone everywhere, beach front, boats, fruit market, medieval walls and a neat old church named after an Irish saint. What’s not to love?
Look at these two young folks “hangin” out with the cool kids. I think they are doing a pretty good job of blending in, just need to work on speaking some Croatian. Jonah made a friend at this park who yacked his ear off in Croatian and Jonah talked right back in English and somehow it just works. Play is the universal language. And I’m not just saying that because I am a recreational therapist…it’s just true people!
