Korcula Island
Korcula Island, Croatia, 2010-06-04 12:00 by Laerke
Korcula Island was just what we wanted, peace and quiet and not many other tourists, coupled with super cute little towns and the drop-dead beautiful azure blue ocean what more could you want? Ohh what about the dozens of vineyards and neat little fields filled with olive trees? We had some great drives around Korcula Island taking it all in.
Korcula town was like a mini Dubrovnik, an old walled city built with big stone it was very charming. Unfortunately the weather was cold and rainy, so we mostly cuddled up in bed and read a ton of books :)

The weather cleared up and we headed on to the other end of the island, here we found a nice campground. Within walking distance was lots of beautiful little coves with the most amazing water, we could have easily spent a week or two here just lazing by the ocean.

One night as we were having dinner by the harbor in Vela Luka, we were lucky enough to witness a procession walking through town, they were celebrating the feast of "Corpus Christi" - an important festival in the Catholic Church. It commemorates the institution of the Holy Communion.
