Group photo on the Brinje Cam!!
We had a great breakfast early this morning as we prepared to leave Brinje. It was great to see Mira again and it is always sad when we leave her. She works incredibly hard to make us feel at home at her house. There is something special about her that connects to me as I think back to the trip I was a part of in 1987. Hopefully next time is not too long from now.

We also had a great time with Domagoj, Lea and Luka. The kids are really growing and we can't wait to spend more time with them in Zagreb in a few days.

Our first stop today was in Pula. I had always wanted to see the colosseum there and finally got my chance. It is in amazing shape considering it is nearly 2,000 years old. You ca read more about it here at the world's most trusted source of totally accurate information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pula_Arena

after a quick stop in Pula we were off to Rovinj. It was CRAZY hot here today with temperatures in the mid 90s. We had lunch near Rovinj's Centar. The food was excellent. After that, we went back to

The crew in Brinje as we are about to leave
our apartments to get out of the heat. We finally got dad to mass at St. Euphemia. After the climb, we got there in time for communion. Perfect timing. From there we shopped on our way down hill and had supper at Copacabana. Great food. Just got back to the apartment. Off to bed.
