Day 3: Korčula

The weather forecast had said it was going to rain all day today, so I wasn't sure what to expect when I woke up this morning. Tim had already woken up at the crack of dawn and been able to sit on the balcony and watch the sunrise.

The photos look beautiful but there wasn't much chance of me being up at that time of the morning when on holiday :)

At that point in the morning it seems like it was still quite dry, but by the time I had got up, had breakfast and was ready for a walk around the town, it was already starting to look quite grey.

Sure enough, it wasn't long before the first drops of rain started to fall.

Luckily things started to clear up a bit again mid-morning, so around noon we were able to head out and explore a bit more again. We went for a stroll round the coast, in the opposite direction to the old town.

Once we got a little way beyond the town, we saw a sign for the town park. We followed a little path up the hillside and into quite a dense forest.

Korčula is quite a forested island, and I think this particular bit of forest must have been designated a park just because it had a few paths through it :)

Every so often we came to a clearing where we could get a brief view of the coast through the trees.

At one point we came across a little grotto on the hillside...

..and further on we came across a memorial commerorating soldiers from the island who had died in the first world war.

After a while we emerged from the woods to walk alongside the sea again.

There was a pretty little inlet of water which we were able to walk around.

At some points the weather almost seemed sunny :)

We couldn't see back as far as the old town from here, but there were still some beautiful views of the sea...

...and back towards the mainland as well.

We didn't want to get caught out in a storm, so eventually we decided we'd better turn around and head back towards the town. We just about made it there by around 3pm when the heavens opened! Luckily there is a pizzeria next door to our apartment, so we went in there for a meal and only had a short dash back home once we'd finished. The rain has continued throughout the rest of the afternoon, turning into a proper storm with lightning and a very strong wind, so we definitely chose the optimum time for a walk :)
