We are both healthy and for the most part happy. Other than a rough first part of the night when we got bad beta from the bus driver who dropped us off at the place were we needed to purchase ferry tickets, but neglected to tell us no ferry's leave from the port on Sundays... and he was the last bus of the day. So we had a nice 8km walk back to town only to find a hotel for 80 Euro's a night (that's very expensive).
Always and adventure.

Okay, who wished rain on us? I know you guys are pretty much fighting trench foot now due to weeks of rain, but you don't have to get jealous of our weather here anymore...
We got rained out from one of the better sectors we've climbed at so far. Amazing tufa lines offering power endurance style entertainment. At least the temps were cool enough to feel like the .13a/b i sampled was attainable with just a few attempts. The upper tufa's were running with water, so hopefully we'll go back and i'll get another attempt at sending it.
The image below is of a local climber working on the same route before the rain started.
We climbed at the Marjan sector this morning and now we will let our skin heal and our muscles rest for the rest of the day. It's cloudy and overcast. I hope we don't miss the cooler temps, but i need a half day recovery. Hopefully we can return to Klis in a day or two and have dry tufas and pockets.
Happy Father's day dad and dad-in-law! We are missing everyone very much. See you in just under two weeks.

We did pretty well our first full day in Croatia. The three of us ate good food, walked all over the place, hung out at the beach, and climbed some easy rocks! The jet lag is quickly fading and we are ready to spend more time at the beach and climb more rocks! The beaches are EURO beaches for sure! I had to find the best angle for the above image to keep it viewable for all ages! The water is warm and very clear. I'm excited for our stay on some of the islands and the snorkling we will get to do inbetween climbing sessions.
