Another Day on the Sea
This morning we sailed through the Kornati Islands to a well known section of the Kornati National Park. This section had high, rocky cliffs over looking the open sea. As I looked up from the boat at the towering cliffs, I realized the beautiful cliff jumping potential here. The water was 80 meters deep. There were swells in the blue water and caves on the high cliffs. Unfortunately we could not stop because of the high waves and the lack of good docking. Towards the end of the cliffs there was a fake castle ruin built in the past for a pirate movie set.
After the cliffs came my favorite time of day.... Lunch! We anchored in a small bay to go swimming and eat. I also had to do some school work. I took a picture with self timer and tripod of me jumping off the boat into the water. I think it is an amazing photo. I think it’s the best photo of the trip so far!
When we were almost at our stay for the night, we experienced the amazing Croatian sunset. It seems to me much larger than an Alaskan sunset. Also the clouds were bigger.
In order to anchor for the night, my dad had to swim with a rope to the closest island and tie the rope to a rock. He looked like a navy seal, it was kind of funny. We are all settled in here and are ready for the long night.
