I'd a very interesting morning - which usually denotes a disaster!
I set to go to a little place in the middle of Vodice. I knew it wasn't a big place and it was at the end of a 1-way cul-de-sac. 1st I missed the entry, went in the next one. Then had to negotiate past a parked lorry with about 2" either side. Gate was closed at the end so I walked in - very close pine trees with leaning trunks and lots of piles of cut branches around. Then the owner appears on the balcony to say he's closed, they're having work done. He doesn't speak any English and I have no Croatian, but I get the jist. So... I can't reverse past the lorry then directly on to a main road. So I ask can I come in and turn around... What a carry-on!! I'd to shift piles of branches, keep getting out to check front/rear corners, and at one stage the awning was within an inch or less of the leaning trunks. He just waltzed off n left me to it! By the time I got out n closed his gates there was another, impossible to pass, work lorry but he was on the scene and made way by parking properly.
Next possibility sounded like a CL, just 6 vans, so thought I'd better ring - no reply. I'll try it anyway... it was a turn into a very narrow access to a house really, so passed on that too.
Ended up on an ACSI site at Tisno which is pretty soul-less to be honest. View to die for but nobody there n lots of noisy work going on. I'd assumed with it being the weekend it would be hooching and was prepared to dislike it for that reason!! Serves me right!
