Day 3: Trogir, Croatia (5)
After exploring Trogir's medieval center, we exited via the North Gate and crossed a canal that doubles as a marina.
The canal was lined with pleasure boats. On the north side (above left) was a public market for locals and tourists.
Vendors sold fruit and vegetables, baked good, meat, clothing, and many other products.
From a footbridge that crossed the canal, we could see the entire market, a large parking lot, and an uninspired modern shopping center in the distance.
The view to our south, toward the Old Town, was more
appealing: The bridge led into Park Forlin, a large green space between the
medieval center and the canal.
The logo of the HNK football club was painted on a building next to the canal. (The club, which has fallen on hard times, celebrated its 100th anniversary this year while seeking financial assistance from fans and other donors.)
Nearby, a blossoming tree lent color to a stone house.
As the hot afternoon wore on, we returned to the tender landing on Trogir's waterfront and caught a ride back to our ship.
At 7 p.m., L'Austral's propellers began turning, and
we left Trogir behind as the ship set sail for Dubrovnik.
