Today Joe and I went for our daily fresh bread run into Baska Voda, the next town south of Brela, and were so surprised with what was happening there. We forgot that today is International Labor Day in Europe and we were met with a marching band. It was fantastic.
As we walked the promenade, there were 18 lambs being roasted and tables set-up for hundreds. While we sat and had our coffee, we heard the most wonderful klapa music being sung on the waterfront marina. We wondered over, sat down and were entertained for the next two hours with klapa groups and dance ensembles that represented all the areas of Croatia. There were also home-made goods from honey, lavender, hand-crafted wood objects and toys, cheese from Pag and all the other wonderful items that Croatia is known for making for sale.
What a surprise and what a great way to spend the morning.
Tonight we are going to Makarska, the largest of the towns on the Makarska Riviera, for a wine tasting of wines from all of Croatia. We may need to take the taxi home, but that will not be a problem since our incredible driver Zoran lives in Makarska.
