On vacation in Croatia, I took a touristy boat cruise to see the national park Kornati. It is simply beautiful there. But sometimes the favorite part of an adventure is the unexpected. On the way back to Zadar, the boat stopped at a small village called Kukljica. Walking around the small harbor, I noticed some old boats in the water. 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.
