2, 2011 – Cavtat, Croatia
has seen many wars. They just recently had a fight for freedom that lasted for five years.
Then in December of 1995, they stopped fighting and finally had peace.
The most fun that we had in Croatia was hanging out with
our friend named Martin. He taught me how to do a back dive and a back flip. For me
a back flip is easier than a front flip. Martin dove off of his spreader and the splash was huge.
We wouldn’t always swim. Sometimes we tied up the boats. Martin taught
us a new way to play Uno. Martin was the champ.
The only thing that I didn’t like were all of the charterers. One cruiser boat even got
hit by a charter boat. It was very crowded so the charter boats would get too close. But
we haven’t gotten hit, yet. Knock on wood.
We also liked the castles. We could climb all over them. Sometimes there were
only a couple of columns. They were awesome.
8, 2011 – Taormina, Sicily
day while anchored Dad and I decided to go on a nine mile walk to Castelmola. On the walk we talked.
We would talk about any thing that popped up in our mind. Like what happens to Easter candy that
you save, or my birthday, or Christmas even Wii. Surprisingly, Dad was really interested when I was talking
When we got to the top we
saw a castle. There wasn’t much but a wall held up by a bunch of cables. On the
way back we stopped for ice cream in Taormina. We shared a medium size bowl. We picked
two flavors, I picked lemon (of course) and Dad picked boysenberry. It was delicious. I
thought the combo was perfect.
When we got back I looked at the clock. We were walking for three hours. It
felt like we were walking for a third of that time. I guess time flies when you’re having fun. J
