There isn't much to write about the month of July spent living and camping on the island of Brač because we didn't do much! Our campground was located in the city of Bol and we were right on the beach. The campground was situated in the back of the Dominican Monastery. We swam almost everyday, went to the Bol library and checked out books, we sat on our favorite benches over looking one beach and read tons of books, grilled all of our meals like baked potatoes and grilled cheese on the communal grill in our campground, saw two movies at the outdoor movie theatre, enjoyed an occasional Croatian beer on the beach, went grocery shopping at the Konzum and Kerum, bought fresh bread from our favorite Pekara and made friends with other campers from Slovenia, Croatia, Germany and the Netherlands. We saw many campers come and go because we stayed longer than anyone. The mom from one of our favorite Slovenian families would play the guitar at night while we fell asleep to the Adriatic's waves and her spanish sounding songs. Living on an island can't get much better than this!

this was our favorite spot on the island. there were 5 benches here that overlooked one of the medium sized beaches. we would sit here all day sometimes and read books and eat lunch. as the sun would move, we would move benches. we will always remember this spot!

A slice of Heaven
Em, you little fish. Carmenita(that was her name wasn't it?) would be proud, except you were always on a floating device instead of really swimming. Did you? You girls do such a good job of photojournalling. Second career maybe? Talk to Rick Steves, maybe he could get you a job! Love you. xoxoMOM p.s. I was hoping for a picture of that deadly sunburn you had.

Beautiful Views
What a great way to spend a month of your lives! It's very fun reading your travel blog. I think your mom is friends with my mother in law and that's how I found out about the site. Keep up the storytelling :)
