I had no words to describe seeing the city of Split for the first time. The sun was starting its descent as we topped the final hill, and the buildings rising from the Dalmatian coast seemed ethereal.
After settling in, we went into town to try and find a bite to eat. We had no clue as to what direction to go, and the girls decided that “left” seemed to be calling….
Walking left lead us right down to the beach, with restaurants and bars galore. The sky was lighting up with sunset colors. Split easily grew on me in those first few hours.
We settled on a restaurant with an outdoor patio overlooking the water. I became the wine connoisseur, much to my delight, and with a choice bottle of red and a recommendation from the locals to try the squid, we consumed and laughed the night away.
Seafood became the food of choice for our meals ( I don’t think I had anything other than varieties of squid dishes), with Mediterranean wines and gelato for dessert.
I wouldn’t want to remember Split any other way.
