Tuesday May 6th ~ Croatia
Our morning walking tour through Trogir would have been enhanced by having a local guide. We had a little over an hour to explore on our own. I felt that we missed out on some of the history and sites at this UNESCO city center. I hope that Gate 1 will consider providing a local guide here in the future.
“The national park is world-famous for its lakes arranged in cascades. Currently, 16 lakes can be seen from the surface. These lakes are a result of the confluence of several small rivers and subterranean karst rivers. The lakes are all interconnected and follow the water flow. They are separated by natural dams of travertine.” ~ Wikipedia
This was the one place I was most excited to see on this portion of our trip. I was thrilled to see the sunshine after several days of rainy skies earlier in the week. We had high expectations that the waterfalls would be filled and we would have prime viewing circumstances. Well we were only partly right…
The water falls were in fact brimming. That was the good news. Along with all that water was a flooding situation which meant that we would not be allowed to venture down the pathways to the bottom to walk along the boardwalk. I was disappointed as I have dreamed of taking this walk for years.
quickly eventually stopped moping, and made the most of the situation. It was still a thrilling stroll along the upper pathway. We also enjoyed our boat ride on the lake. Here are some of the photos we took along the walk:
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful to have crossed one more thing off of my list, (but only with a pencil) as I really hope to return someday to actually get down on those amazing lower walkways.
