We DID do things besides visit John in the hospital. Simone and Karin and the kids went to the beach every day. The beaches around by us were really rocky, as is most of the shoreline of the island of Krk where we were staying. We did a day trip to Plitvice National Park, which is heaven on earth (if heaven was crawling with daytrippers), visited the Biserujka limestone cave in a rocky Adriatic hillside, went to a hard-packed sand beach with "healing" black mud flats that people were slathering themselves in, walked a bit around the town of Krk, and stopped in the ridiculously tiny aquarium, and the last day everyone but Martin (who was also rather flattened) and I went to the beach at Punat, and ...that's about it. We had planned to go see the colosseum in Pula and possibly take a ferry to Split, but between trying to get to the hospital at least every other day and the heat,...yeah, flattened. Still, looking at the photos, we did more than I realized, or at least some of us did :)
Garden of the house we stayed in on Krk
Never too old for walking on rocks
Only worth it for the 15 minutes of cool temperature; the cave was TINY
The littles loved the aquarium/terrarium!
What'choo lookin' at, Lizard?
Just what we needed! The ice cream was DELICIOUS.
