Telašćica

I’ve posted before about sea gulls and in fact this very boat ride to Telašćica Nature Park in Croatia.

Their fading, peeling paint immediately caught my eye. As usual, my mind wandered to wondering what the stories were behind the boats? I assume the owners used them to earn a living. Are they still used?  No one was around to talk to so the questions remain unanswered.
