Camping on Cres

My last weekend in Rijeka, John, Zoran and I decided to go camping on the island of Cres. We took a ferry over to the island and as I was getting settled in my seat I noticed this set of emergency instructions in front of me - especially point #1...

When we got to the island we found out where the trail was and started walking. By the time we got out of the populated town area, it was dark. We wound our way through endless rock-walled sheep pens - we almost ran into a few sheep! - and eventually settled down in an empty rectangle a few hundred meters from the main path. It was beautiful! John set up his hammock, I stayed in a small tent, and Zoran took the ground. We could see so many stars, and it was easy to get a small fire going. In the morning we woke up to a strong breeze and a beautiful view of olive and fig trees, the ocean, and other islands.

Later in the afternoon we went swimming in beautiful crystal clear water before heading home. Other than an awkward walk through Naked Town (a nudist campground), it was one of the best places I've ever camped.

I feel like I should say something, but can't find the right words. Anyways, one is certain: I miss you.
