Easter Greetings from Croatia

 

A choir of church bells tolled just before midnight to usher in Easter’s arrival here in Trogir, Croatia. The fervor with which the bells rang was reminiscent of what we heard the night that the Catholic church chose a new pope.

Indeed, spring is officially in the air with dogs on safari in fields of yellow and green on the nearby island of Čiovo,

    1. Marilyn, I’m not sure who that figure was, but I liked the shadow he cast. :) Thank you.

      I’m off to your site to see if you’ve shared any tales about how Easter is celebrated in Mexico. I guess I’d wrongfully assumed that eggs were a universal part of Easter celebrations around the world.

  1. I didn’t hear a choir of church bells but the sound of the abandon rig alarm, luckily it was only a drill, still it got me up early, 5am early. Hope you had a great Easter Tricia.
