This is the catamaran passenger ferry to the big islands off Split. Today we obtained the ferry schedules to the islands called Brac, Hvar, Solta, Korcula and the farthest Vis. The one way voyage takes 1 hour to Solta to over three hours to get to Vis. Vis was so far off the coast that Tito had his revolutionary headquarters on the island in WW II. It was an off limits military island up to the last decade. The fare to far away Vis is only $10 CAD.
We will be planning individual day trips out of Split to each of these islands and the towns on them.

This is the inner Palace in Split. To Mary Lou and I this is our downtown. The Palace was originally built in 300 AD and yesterday we toured the basement or understucture of the Palace. Each wall in basement mirrored the ground floor layout of the Palace.

Mary Lou is eating fish soup at Libar Restaurant right outside our apartment door. We didn’t come here until yesterday because I thought this restaurnt was closed. I am like like a Jewish mother feeding her baby chicken soup. Mary Lou has had a bad cold ever since we arrived and it is still hanging on to her.
