It's hard to believe we've been married for 14 years! Happy Anniversary to my amazing husband, who always supports our family, loves his children, and puts up with my craziness. Can't wait for what the future holds!
Enjoy this little video I put together!

Once again they had wonderful little coves and spots to swim off the rocky coast. The build in steps and ladders to help you get in and out of the clear water. We rented chairs and soaked in our last bit of sun and salt.
Love this cute little town!
Our last views from the ship - Goodbye Croatia!
With our new friends Dave and Kelly!
Our whole crew! Eric, Steph, Kim, David, Kathy, Scot, Kelly and Dave! Goodbye good friends!
We sailed overnight to Venice and woke up to a beautiful morning. Unfortunately we had to fly home that day, but luckily we had been able to spend 3 days in Venice when we came 9 years ago.
We had a long but uneventful trip home. We stayed in Charlotte for the night and then picked up the kids from their grandparents' house the next morning. We really enjoyed this cruise and would highly recommend WindStar to anyone. We made some great friends, and the trip was a perfect mix of sightseeing and relaxing. Can't wait to schedule our next trip!

The bell tower from the cathedral built on top of Diocletian's moseleum
We found a wonderful cove for swimming about a 10 minute walk from the ship. It was lined with people swimming, eating and soaking up the sun! The water is so clear!
They do a great job of building ladders and steps all around the cove, making it easy to just dive right in.
We rented some chairs and umbrellas and enjoyed a wonderful afternoon!
Our server, Charlie, was a fun friendly guy from Indonesia. He entertained us each night with some fun tricks.
This was a pretty cool trick of balancing two forks on a toothpick!

This is the view of the old town from our ship.
We took a walking tour of the city and the walls.
If you are a Game of Thrones fan, you will recognize most of this, as much of the show was filmed here and in the surrounding mountains.
View from on top of the city walls - you can walk all the way around on the walls that encircle the old town.
Every turn was a beautiful little street, lined with shops, apartments, and laundry hanging outside windows.
One of the guides on the ship told us about a spot where you could swim and jump off the walls. We went with our friends Dave and Kelly to find this amazing spot!
My brave husband jumped off two different spots - what a thrill!
The hard part was not the height - it was jumping out far enough to clear the rocks.
Here is one of the crazy Australians we were jumping with - he jumped from the highest spot!
And yes, by the end I had finally worked up the courage for one jump. But one was enough for me!
(This video is shows both of us jumping, and you have to watch how long it takes me to work up the courage to jump!)
The water is so clear, you can see down about 30 feet!
After all that excitement, we all needed a break! Some other people from our ship took kayak tours (you can see them here)
Definitely our best day so far! What an adventure!
