Rovinj, May 16, 2018, Our Last Stop in Croatia

Well, the afternoon of Wednesday, May 16th, was our last moment in Croatia.  This has been a interesting and exciting trip.  We traveled to destinations that were new to us.  The scenery was beautiful.  The people were nice and the food good.  If you have the opportunity to visit the Dalmatian Coast sieze the day and take the trip.

Sailing into the small port of Rovinj, one is greeted with the bellower of the Church of Saint Euphemia; dominating the harbor, the sight is extraordinary.
