... Late afternoon we drove up to Cres. The town is right on the water. No cars in town and gorgeous little alleyways everywhere. We spent an hour getting lost in the lane ways, then stopped for dinner. We both had the Cres specialty, lamb cutlets. They were very tasty! Nice to have some good meat :) We found the ice cream shop just as it was closing, then headed back to the ...

We booked the 6.15pm ferry, and enjoyed our first Croatian beer while we waited for it. Only a 25 ...

Liked Opatija - had dinner at a nice restuarant with a piano player like David Helfgott playing (really well) all these old tunes. Some Italian ladies from Australia having a ball and being chatted up by the owner.
