Makarska to Pucisca

Pucisce, Croatia

Another luxuriously lazy morning on the boat and in the sea. As we arrived into Pucisca we sailed past a quarry famous for providing the stone for the White House. Now that's impressive. Pucisca is renowned for its stonemasonry and we visited a school where children go to learn the craft. Although the school was closed for the Summer, they had some of their works on display, everything from sculptures to water fountains. Apparently, the students work on one piece throughout their years at the school, improving it as they learn more skills.

Our guide Carla told us about a nice lightHouse in the area, so we - Brits and Canadians again - walked the coastal path in search of it. Half way there, we discovered some huge webs made by equally huge spiders, which made some of us a little bit more jumpy after that. At one point, I spotted a huge insect on Jess's back, screamed "WHAT IS THAT??" causing Jess to perform what I can only describe as 'the bug dance'.
Panic over, we arrived at the lightHouse, only to find out it was just...a House. With a light on top. We made our way back to town, where a combination of E-numbers and tiredness turned Beth, Kira and I into hysterical wrecks as we suddenly found the unintentional innuendos of the Croatian language hilarious.

We had a captain's dinner - risotto and pancetta - on the boat that night, followed by a trip to the Island's only bar (with music by 'DJ Blizzard') for our pirate party. We met up with the Ika, the other boat, for a fun night, but thanks to Croatia's unhealthy acceptance of smoking indoors we were eventually smoked out of the club and back to the boat.
