Unexpected Charm

We're currently in the town of Skradin within Krka National Park. This was part of an unexpected stay when we were supposed to have spent a third night in Plitvice National Park. And boy were we glad we made the last minute move...

Skradin was unexpectedly charming with its narrow alleyways and old school buildings. Great place to go for a walk.

Yesterday, we visited the main waterfall network in Krka National Park called Skradinski Buk. It was quite impressive, but the zoo-like atmosphere due to the presence of legions of kiddies running amok and the commercialized Disney-like atmosphere kind of took away from the experience. Otherwise, it would've been seriously considered to be part of our Top 10.

After a brief visit to Krka's other main waterfall Roski Slap, we're heading over to Split.

So far, the weather has been mostly cloudy and threatening rain or dumping its load. The forecast for Split and Dubrovnik shows chances of thundershowers for the remainder of the next five days. I've seen on the news lots of flooding in Croatia. And we're really beginning to wonder if we're in for snow or no chance of seeing peaks and glaciers when we get to Switzerland next week. Not sure what's up with the weather when it's June!?!?
