If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive. - Eleanora Duse
Stately palm trees reach to the blue sky.
We’ve hit a bit of a wet patch of weather this week in Trogir, with rain dancing down onto the rooftops by day and by night. It’s the kind of weather that finds us making our own sunshine. Though I’m longing to explore more of this charming town on the Adriatic, as well as more of nearby Split (where we went wine tasting last week), the daily sprinkles offer the perfect excuse to catch up on work indoors and reminisce about our temporary home-away-from-home’s marvelous blue sky scenes.
