Tuesday morning we drove to a tiny village named Vid which previously was a Roman settlement named Narona. I toured a museum built around the excavated Roman ruins. The main area of the museum showcases statues of 1st century Roman emperor Augustus and his family/friends. If the statues are without clothing, it was an indication that the subjects were dead while being crafted. In the first picture, Augustus is the biggest statue in the center.
For lunch, Rob and Stasa took us to a restaurant for a nice lunch: raw eel and frog legs. I surprisingly enjoyed the frog legs; they tasted a bit like chicken. The eel was pretty gross but I at least I can say I tried it.
After lunch, we drove to Makarska where we would stay for two nights. We got there around dinner time and decided to eat at an outdoor place called XXL. Our waiter was the owner and he was the only waiter we have had in Croatia that’s actually personable. While we were eating, a stray dog came up to our table and begged for food. He wouldn’t leave us alone the whole meal but we didn’t really mind because he was so cute.
We decided to walk around the promenade after dinner – exploring the more remote rocky sections. The area was practically a cat sanctuary. You can see a couple in the pictures below.
