Beyond the Boat

Split, Croatia

Split is the second largest city in Croatia. Its origins go back to 450 BCE. We visited the Diocletian’s Palace in the center of the old city. The palace is a marvel of ancient construction Continue reading “Split, Croatia”

Sailing in Croatia – Part 3

Our next stop was Stormorska, a small village on the island of Šolta.  When we arrived there was only one spot left at the dock (thanks to Roko getting a reservation.)  He squeezed us in with little room to spare! Continue reading “Sailing in Croatia – Part 3”

Sailing in Croatia – Part 2

We awoke to grey skies and thunderstorms on Wednesday.  With open seas and waves 3-4 meters (not feet!), we ditched the plan to visit Vis.  Roko contacted a friend in Stari Grad who reserved a space for us at the docks. Continue reading “Sailing in Croatia – Part 2”

Sailing in Croatia – Part 1

We left early for the Tube and express train trip to Heathrow airport.  The flight to Split, Croatia was about 2 hours.  Upon arrival, we caught the Sunsail bus to their charter base in Agana, about 1/2 hour north of Split.

Sunsail has everyone departing on the same day so it was pretty crowded with people anxious to get on their boats and leave.  Because we had a skipper, we didn’t have to go through the normal checkout routines on the boat. Continue reading “Sailing in Croatia – Part 1”

Denver, a few boring stops, Georgia and home!

Our trip to Denver was supposed to be a non-event.  We even left a little later to arrive when Jen was home.   It’s a beautiful ride on I70 from Grand Junction through Glenwood Canyon where the Colorado river flows right next to the highway.

Just 1 1/2 hrs. from Denver we came to a dead stop.  Nothing was moving.  We went about 5 miles in 1 hour.  After all the discussions about pros and cons traveling in a motor home I now realize the ultimate benefit of having a bathroom handy when you need one! Continue reading “Denver, a few boring stops, Georgia and home!”


We spent our last day in Moab touring Canyonlands National Park.  We got an early start expecting the same scorching weather and were pleasantly surprised with the cloud cover and cooler temps at higher elevation. Continue reading “Canyonlands”


After leaving Alan to enjoy his new kitchen we headed north and east to Moab, Utah for a few days of recovery.  We love visiting National Parks and wanted to cross Arches and Canyonlands off our list. Continue reading “Arches”
