The night was rather restless. My anchor alarm app went of four times, but not due to the anchor dragging, but because of my phone losing it's GPS signal. In the morning we started motoring out of the harbour and set for the open sea again. No long journey planned today, as we wanted a bit of a relaxing holiday. Whilst on our way we had some breakfast and later on saw a dolphin poke it's head out of the water closer to the boat than any before. The water was speckled with rubbish here and there, so they don't seem to take recycling to big here.
We reached our destination island after a short while (breakfast had been finished) and dad navigated through until we reached the other side. Out side of Hvar an ocean cruiser could already be seen (Pacific Princess – Hamilton), so we headed straight for that, correctly assuming that was our destination harbour. We had two options, a marina on the opposite side of Hvar on a different island or in Hvar harbour. When we read that Hvar also has electricity and water, we went straight there.
Along the way we did some testing with the boat going backwards and Rhiannon and Caro had some fun doing twists and turns whilst Dad was on the toilet. Not shortly after we reached Hvar, got the fenders and lines ready and Rhiannon and Dad got us in to the mooring. After that sitting on the deck, updating the blog and uploading tracks to GPSies. Whilst I was working on that, the others decided to run of and have a drink. Later on I joined in (after taking ages to find out how to lock the boat) and after a drink everyone except dad went up to the Fortress above the city. Up there Rhiannon and me did a time lapse and after a short visit around the embattlement’s we returned to the boat. Whilst Caro took a shower Dad and me had a chat with people from the “DoE” who were sailing around the area.
Once Caro was ready we all set of to look for a restaurant. The first one we found we went in, but after looking at the menu dad came up with the excuse that we have no cash on us (they only took cash) as it was so expensive. We then had a very good meal in a restaurant which seemed over it's head with how many people were there.
Back to the boat and then some sleep whilst Rhiannon and Caro were trying to rap and breaking down in laughter after that.
