Borik & the Beach

After a long night's rest (we're still struggling with jet lag!), we headed out for a walk to explore our new neighborhood. Our apartment is located in Borik, a popular tourist area of Zadar. We're only steps away from a large campground, a marina, and the beach.

A happy camper parked right beside the beach!
A benefit of visiting during the off-season: you get the beach to yourself!

We enjoyed a lovely, lazy afternoon, soaking up the sun and admiring the views. Once again, we were surprised by the similarity between this landscape and Southern California. Notice the trees? I'm convinced that they're the Croatian cousins of Torrey pines!

Islands off the coast of Zadar.
Life is good!

I'm going to leave you with my favorite photo of the day... no, this is not me and Jim! ;-)
Croatia is for lovers!
