    Sun again, another drink !

    by JLBG Updated Nov 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The sun is back for our second afternoon in Vrulje but it is now too late to sail today. We have better leave to morrow morning. For now, under the sun, it is hot and thirsty, then, why not to have another drink ?

    The sky used to be blue yesterday evening, but next morning, it is turned white, with few guts of wind and showers. We have better stay anchored in the port and have a walk around and leave only to morrow !

    No more need to protect from the sun.

    by JLBG Updated Nov 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Now, there is no need to protect from the sun anymore. The sun is so low on the horizon that it does not burn anymore ! Why should we keep the parasol open ? Once close, we will have an unobstructed view !

    Waiting for the lobster to cook

    by JLBG Updated Nov 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lobster is not for fast food ! It will not be very long but, anyway, we must wait until it is cooked. We are in downtown Vrulje, what can you do while waiting ? Sip a glass of this wine we have already tasted earlier and loved, seems a good choice !

    Living lobsters !

    by JLBG Updated Nov 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In several tanks, there were half a dozen superb lobsters of various size, fully alive. What a great idea to chose two of them, medium size, and have them cooked for dinner ! They are well alive but should not live long anymore !

    Katina for fresh drink !

    by JLBG Updated Nov 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Katina is the last "refueling" opportunity for the thirsty sailor before the Kornati. Don't miss this opportunity ! There is a small quay and a house with a large shaded terrace. Other boats can anchor swinging in the bay.

    Shrines Of Caring Thoughts

    by KristaB Written Aug 20, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is a tradition to build small shrines of stone on top of Kornati islands for good luck and nice thoughts to be carried away on a sea breeze.

    It doesn't matter where the wind blows.
    It's about who you dedicate it to and why.

    I built a few for my friends, I wanted to build more but the clouds were coming in, my hair was rising, I could smell the storm and feel the electricity building up in an invisible distance behind clouds of strange shades.

    Travarica Remedy

    Healing Booze

    After a good meal, you will be offered spirit - "Travarica" - made from distilled fruit and enriched with aromatic herbs. Here at Vruje we got one scented with rosemary and sage that grows on Kornat island. Superb!
