Default Re: Balkans_2018...You Only Live Once!

Back to the Coastal Artery via the back-ways for a smooth cruise northwards to the turn-off to the Peljesac Peninsula....and our home somewhere around there for the next 5 days.
And SO MUCH MORE!!!

A long-standing contact and local, Dooby (Frgich) from the ADVrider forum, had offered his family getaway at Trstenik, a small bay and fishing village along the coast of the Peljesac Peninsula....and smack-bang in the midst of some world-reknown wineries, a hub to ferry-ports to all sorts of mainland and island harbours, a treasure trove of historical sites and all within 80km reach of Dubrovnik and it's sizeable airport, if needed.

Using the turnoff to Zuljana, another coastal fishing village off the main road, we were brought down to single-laners-through-the-coastal-vineyards-speeds immediately.
That warm, fuzzy "coming-home" feel was somewhat too sudden, but most certainly welcome






Trstenik....first things thirst!!






....while staring at that....





...and with the Trstenik-Trademark of the world-renowned Grgich Winery centerstage and the Peljesac- Artery-Road in the hills above...













...a second coldie isn't far off...

.... while someone is trying to find our famous, little "house-of-mystery" up that small and lush side-valley.






The little Trstenik Hideaway



It sure takes some rootin'-around and plenty of U-turns in the smallest spaces as well as some early contact with the locals....
Just down this lane, mista!!!
Ursula, our local contact (AWESOME!!) has picked up the wandering/ wondering Aussies....























Nothing,...but NUTHIN'!!!...can go wrong now!! That Plavac from up the road is a bloody winner!!
And so are the grapes from that shade-canopy vine-stock.






Off to dinner....








Peace over Trstenik....







No doubt from the first minute: this is a GOOD place

Trstenik/ Peljesac (Croatia) -> Nakovanj -> Trstenik

https://goo.gl/gDYVRA







Time for a maintenance and re-group day...sorting through some gear, some small repairs and fixes, getting some cash and shopping done and
get some washing on the line.
There also seems to be something brewing around us...clouds are piling high and there's some "spark" around somehow.
Let's pick some target not far away with a possible quick and short home-run, if needed.

The old ghost town of Nakovanj might be the ticket.


Our little doll's house...










From the hills above Orebic....a busy channel with Korcula and it's many islets on the right...and the air somehow full of moisture or salt, no idea.







Nakovanj/ Nakovana...only a caretaker is left, now that the place is a heritage-listed area.
Some of the Nakovanj story here.



















It still shows where the timber shaft of the grinding wheel was anchored in the wall of the house.

I still wonder what those looped-stones at each top-corner of the windows were there for....maybe they had some sort of "roller-blind"?






The place where many yarns were told? Or where the Elders decided on "politics"?
