Rain, rain go away

Cavtat, Croatia

Waking up this morning the weather was looking gloomy. Clouds covered the sun and the sky was gray, not the best swimming weather. Roxanne was sure that the clouds would clear up and it would become as hot as yesterday. The weather wouldn’t get in our way though. We all got our swim suites on and jumped in the water. I admit that the water was cold and our swim was short but by 1:00 the clouds had cleared and Roxanne’s prediction was correct. It was hot!
We swam some more and then walked to the market for a lunch of fruit, cheese and salami. We brought back the peaches, grapes, apricots, cherries, watermelon, cantaloupe, cheese and salami back to our lounge chairs by the water. After lunch, Lily and Roxanne played a game of crazy eights before Roxanne left to watch the Women’s tennis singles at a bar with Elaine. Lily and I played a game of solitaire together and won! After cards, Rick, Lily and I dove into the water and went for another swim. After our swim Rick, Lily and walked to the bar where Roxanne and Elaine were. Lily and I went back to the hotel to shower while Roxanne, Rick and Elaine continued to watch the tennis. After our showers Lily and I played solitaire again, and again, and again. We then walked back down to the bar where our parents were. Elaine had gone back to her room to rest. We walked back to the bar where my parents were. They were ready to go so we walked around town and shopped a little. They bought me a shirt and Lily some Russian dolls that get smaller and smaller as you take each one out.
After shopping, we went back to the hotel and we all played cards outside. It started to rain so we had to go inside. By that time we were all getting a bit hungry so we walked to a restaurant. Lily, Rick, Roxanne and I ordered pizza and Elaine had spaghetti. After dinner we stayed at our table and played hearts for a while. We could hear the rain on the plastic cover we had over our table. After cards we walked back to the hotel in the rain.

Happy 4th!! So it sounds like the parents are enjoying the shade of the bar - and the water is refreshing. When you are on vacation that is what you need!! I hope you saw the view from the mausoleum on the top of the North peninsula. Don't forget the Guggenheim in Venice! Love you all and travel well, LeAnn.
