The boys have been doing some extra shopping this morning
At lunchtime we depart Trogir for the start of our trip with our Tasmanian friends aboard
Leaving ACI Marina Trogir
Leaving the historic old town of Trogir
We head north west up the barren coastline
While we travel we take the opportunity to have a leisurely lunch aboard
A couple of hours later we approach the picturesque town of Primosten
In the past Primosten was situated on an islet and was protected by walls and towers and a draw bridge
A causeway was later built in 1564 to connect the town to the mainland
The town was built on a hill which is dominated by the Parish Church of St George which was built in 1485 and later restored in 1760
Primosten is also famous for its huge and beautiful vineyards. There is also a lovely small beach which was voted one of the 10 most beautiful in Croatia
After leaving Primosten we motor north west for just over an hour to Zirje Island where we anchor in an almost secluded bay to have a swim
Apart from the other boat, we were the only visitors to the bay
After an hour enjoying the refreshing water we make our way to a nearby cove called Uvala Stupica Vela where there is a popular restaurant that caters to visiting sailors
We join many other boats and pick up a restaurant mooring in the bay
Fortunately the restaurant had a table available!! At 7 pm we make our way ashore
The restaurant must be very busy tonight!!
Konoba Stupica
Not a spare table to be seen
After waiting for a few minutes we secured our table
The young lady that looked after us spoke good English and was very pleasant and helpful
