Jeritilley A picture is worth a thousand words..

Coming Home, end of the day

Thought for the day….” The secret of getting ahead is getting started”   (Mark Twain).

“Nothing is enough for whom enough is too little”.

A photo from the Adriatic Sea and from Croatia, with some local fishermen returning home to one of the islands near Split.   Croatia became independent from Yugoslavia in 1991, and is now a member of the European Union.   Along the coast of Croatia, there are over 1000 islands, with the largest being Krk.     It is said that Croatia has the smallest town in the world (Hum), which has a population of only 23 people !!   It is also believed the the famous traveller Marco Polo was born on the Croatian island of Korcula, and it is believed that the parachute was also invented in Croatia in the 17th century.

One of the positive effects of the karst (limestone) rocks around Croatia is that the seabed is often sharp and jagged, making fishing with large trawling nets impossible.    Fishing with handlines and small nets has meant that fish stocks have been preserved, and have also prevented the large factory ships from fishing in this area, so fish stocks are good.  Some interesting birds around the boat in the photo too.
