Up early to pack before breakfast, because we want to do our walk at Krka National Park before it becomes too busy. It’s raining heavily but we are mentally prepared for a walk in the rain. The breakfast buffet is really busy, it turns out the hotel is full with groups from all over the world. It includes a group of middle aged Dutch and Flemish men, we suspect the old timers being unloaded from a truck in front of the hotel are for them.
We drive to Skradin and take the little ferry to the base of the Skradinski But. There are some people, but every one fits on the boat. There’s loads of people on the trail around the falls, including big groups with a guide from Solara Cruises again. It rains quite hard in bits and pieces, but the sun comes out in between and it’s not too cold. If you ignore all the people it’s a beautiful walk, most of it is over raised wooden walkways that go over the water. The water simply runs everywhere in the valley and comes down in several stages to the big lake at the bottom.
We finish our walk around 1 pm. We call dispatch (Mom), ask for the telephone number of the restaurant near by that was recommended by the hotel and make a reservation for 2h30. We walk back to Skradin instead of taking the ferry to burn some of the calories we are expecting to ingest during our late lunch. The restaurant Pelegrini is in the center of Sibelik, we order the degustation menu and the accompanying wines (only for me, since Arne is driving us to our hotel). Food is delicious and the wines excellent. All products and even the whole staff is from the area, so it’s in all aspects local cuisine.
Afterwards we have a small walk through the old town before heading to our next hotel in KAŠTEL LUKŠIĆ. The GPS sends us through the small streets of the old town, Arne has trouble fitting the car through road works, walking families and badly parked old cars. At the hotel we get unpacked, take a small walk by the sea and Arne has a bowl of soup. Sorting pictures, writing the log, in bed by 10 pm.
