While my blog lately has made it look like I have been in Paris, I have actually been on a trip to Croatia. (Follow me on Twitter or my Facebook page for real time events). Last year my son and his family went to Croatia for a medieval festival and also to spend time on a beach. It turns out that Croatia has very few sandy beaches and the largest one happens to be on Rab. Anyway, I talked them into making the same trip again as the fair sounded like fun. I haven’t been to Croatia before so was excited to see a new place. Rab is up in the northwest part of Croatia. We never made it down to Dubrovnik-that’s still on my list of places I want to visit. When we arrived in Croatia there was a huge wind storm going on. We didn’t see one boat in the water as we drove along and I was afraid that the ferry we needed to take to Rab Island wouldn’t be running but it was. I don’t know what we would have done if it hadn’t been.
This is what they call Rab Town, where the festivities took place. We stayed at an enormous camping ground where RVs and tents abounded but there were also little air conditioned mobile homes which we rented. I am not a fan of camping in tents. Last year there was an enormous rain storm during the night which just about blew my son and his family away as they tried to hold everything down. This photo is the view we had from the camp ground mobile home. We sat and looked at it often on a little porch.
