We are in the northeastern part of the country of Croatia. Vukovar is Croatia's biggest river port, located at the confluence of the Vuke and Danube rivers.
Croatia consists of 1248 islands and islets, and 47 of them are permanently inhabited. I had no idea there were so many islands and islets!
We had no idea what a powerful day this would be. A bombed out water tower in Vukovar was a prominent landmark visible from our boat dock, and it became ...

More cold and rain. Can this stop now? Once again the ignorant American didn’t realize that this city, the largest port for Croatia on the Danube was 90% destroyed by the 87 day Croatian War of Independence or Homeland War.
