A Hitchcock Sunset in Zadar

Our time here in Zadar feels precious and fleeting; in the back of our minds, we know that we'll be leaving in a few weeks.

The beauty of travelling is that we make an effort to get out and appreciate our surroundings each and every day. Tonight, we grabbed our flip flops and went for a stroll along the beach.

At Borik beach.
It was about 8pm, and the sun was gently slipping below the horizon. There's something magical about a sunset on the sea.

We aren't the first visitors to appreciate a Zadar sunset. In 1964, Alfred Hitchcock wrote:
"Zadar has the most beautiful sunset in the world, more beautiful than the one in Key West, Florida, applauded at every evening."
I've never been to Key West, but I do know an amazing sunset when I see one!
