... guide was the lovely Branka. Our first stop was Ston - a tiny village on the coast. Croatia is surrounded by towering limestone mountains (same as Montenegro and Amalfi), which once again makes it difficult to grow anything. The limestone is porous which soaks up the water and stops flooding occurring (a good thing). The little village is wine and olive oil producing as the climate is perfect. The farmers literally have to clear the land of stones (everywhere) and they build ...

We had a lazy day at sea today. The weather was cool and overcast all day. Nan and I played Clue and Scrabble. I also did some math today. Tonight is the Captain's Dinner again. It was a lot of fun getting all dressed up in my dress. I curled the front of my hair with the curling iron my mom and dad bought me. I think it looked beautiful.
