With both girls in their element, dipping in the sea (with Charlie) then racing off to enjoy the campsite playground, we spent an enjoyable day in Jay/Julie's good company... but with thoughts turning to the ever ticking clock as we head towards Slovenia and the Adria factory visit... we headed into Trogir to enjoy the sights in the late afternoon sunshine....
Trogir dates back to the 3rd century BC with a Greek ancestry courtesy of its fame as the 'island of goats', moving under Roman rule in 48BC it grew in popularity and influence... its architecture takes a Byzantine influence as it gained the protection of this empire until 1123 when it was destroyed by the Saracens... since then in more recent times, both Hungary and the Venetians have gained control but Trogir certainly deserves its UNESCO World Heritage site status awarded in 1997.
With the Civic museum, Land Gate, Starfileo Palace and Cathedral of St Lawrence in Trogir, we were not struggling for places to see... in fact the Kamerlengo Fortress could have taken longer to visit... but with a series of history lessons underway from the moment we stepped into the ancient Loggia (where Libby ruled the courtroom!) it was a captivating glance into history from yesteryear... the walled, fortified city full of charm and cobbled streets...
Ice creams were demolished before heading back over the hill and into camp.... two tired girls await the pleasures of Split tomorrow but we hope to meet up with our new friend again... maybe in Scandinavia which appears to be a potential joint destination...
