Swans~Labudi~Cisnes~ in the town of Skradin

This weekend we drove to Bribir (where hubby's grandparents have a farm) to see family and wish everyone happy holidays since Beli and I will be in Iowa with my family. I felt sad to be there and not have Beli's great-grandfather greet us at the door like he used to do. I miss him. We all miss him.

On Sunday we drove about 10 minutes to the town of Skradin to purchase a few items that we needed for  lunch.  During the winter it's a quiet town, but during the summer it welcomes thousands of tourists, even celebrities! I was surprised when we parked our car next to the grocery store and saw several swans swimming in the river. They were quite friendly and swam towards us.

After feeding the swans, we strolled around the town. It was a nice sunny afternoon. 

A few  homes we saw along the way. I love the green shutters.

How was your weekend? 


  1. As a child I loved feeding swans with bread:) Those are such a beautiful photos:) Btw: when are you flying back home for Christmas?
    Kisses and hugs
    Happy Monday

  2. I am scared of the swans around here! They always hiss at Bama :)

  3. Those swans were adorable!! You always get such nice pictures!...My weekend was good. No drama, lots of sleep, and friends....GOOD!! :-)

  4. Stunning! I love those birds. They are so beautiful and graceful. Make me think of the new movie "The Black Swan." I can't wait to see it.

  5. PS, My aunt ordered my Christmas tree skirt online. I am sure you can find one on Ebay.

  6. I loved your stroll around that lovely town! I had a simple stroll in the woods nearby (first time I've lived in such a non-city setting :)). The birds are beautiful and your little girl looks like she's having fun!

  7. Looks like a very nice place, can imagine the whirr of people come summer time. It is sad when one of the wise old members of the family passes on. We will be having that feeling this Christmas without my grandmother there. Actually we will be not so far from you this holiday season- Wisconsin! Happy start to the holidays dear.

  8. Great pictures. The top one looks like a painting! Have a safe trip. :)

  9. Fun! We had a great weekend visiting the Christmas markets and I even had a date night with hubby since my mom is in town visiting. Then we prepared for St. Nikolas' visit yesterday.

  12. @Diana it was a magical afternoon. (leaving a week from today)

    Krystal, hehe these swans were making a honking noise and there was one swan in particular that was quite aggressive with all the other swans, he/she wanted to be the only one to get bread crumbs!

    @Poetess. a relaxing weekend is always good

    @Marcie, that's right, I have seen some previous, with Natalie Portman and I Mina something. can't spell her name...
