Lunch with Friends

This has been our Split breakfast spot often grabbing a pastry on the run or taking time to sit on the edge of the harbour.

Before the crowds could appear we took a look at the cathedral, crypt & temple of Jupiter, all interesting places. As we still had time we snuck down and explored the basement of the Palace and marvelled at what was. We were lucky to catch some of the singers in the vestibule, the were fantastic a bit like acapella.

We had arranged a tour to Omis with a traditional meal cooked under a bell and were lucky to score our tour guide from our night walk plus another one learning the ropes for that tour, they were great so lunch felt like you were dining with old friends, Omis was a pretty little town few mountains, a river & even a beach. We travelled into the mountains where we went to a Croatian couples home, the had home made prosciutto with cheese & bread for starters. We sampled some hazelnut liquor which was strong, I also tried some of there red wine with lunch it was good. Funny as your driving through the mountains they use every bit of fertile land there’s rocks never mind we can still fit some grape vines between them. However the best part was the main meal veal & potatoes, veal was perfect with a slight crunch on one side and the spuds to die for, they got a little offended when the four of didn’t eat it all. We were also treated to some of there cherries for dessert, let’s just say we rolled onto the bus.

If you want me I’ve moved my treehouse with air conditioning to Split where I think I’ll stay and live off red wine, pizza, fresh bread, cheese, shrimp risotto, pizza & gelato, however I think England might be calling maybe I best catch that plane tomorrow....
