Zadar and Bibinje

Ljilja, Dragana and I just had a well-deserved 5-day break in Bibinje near Zadar on the Croatian coast. We had a great time together, and enjoyed lovely, sunny weather and very uncrowded beaches, as the "season" hasn't really started yet...

We stayed in Ivana's family's house in Bibinje, about 12kms from the city of Zadar. We made good use of the beaches in Bibinje, and also went into Zadar one day and most evenings, and got to know the city inside and out. Here are Ljilja and Dragana at the entrance gate to the city:And here are Ljilja and I in front of the church of Sveti Donat:
We found a great little restaurant, which wasn't that expensive for lunch...
We also made it to the Marina in Bibinje and Ljilja even found a yacht from the US:
We also went to Bibinje to watch the "world famous" sunset (Ivana told us it is supposed to be the best on the Croatian coast). It was really pretty as it was over the sea... Here are Dragana and I in front of a little boat we found...

Ljilja and I with the sun setting over Zadar... after seeing this sunset, I think Bibinje has competition...
One of the things that Zadar is famous for is their "sea organ". Yes, it is an organ which is played by the sea. It is pretty cool. You can sit on it and listen to it. We were there at night, during the day, but we discovered that the best time is definitely sunset. Here is a short recording to try to show you what it is like...

All-in-all we had a good, relaxing time and came back ready for life back in the fast lane known as Banja Luka!
