On our holiday to Croatia, we were lucky to have the opportunity to celebrate my Dad’s birthday together as a family.
We enjoyed the generous hospitality of a relative for the occasion.
They made dinner for us all at their remote farm located about ten minutes out of the main village.
We ate in the shade of a glorious walnut tree as the warm, sun settled behind us.
There was bread, grilled meat, salad and blitva – a traditional Dalmation meal.
Definitive rustic splendour.
Here, you can see the traditional cooking area they have created in their modest, stone farm house.
We were truly so fortunate to have had this experience with our family.
It was an evening of balmy, summer delights as we roamed the over-grown country side and enjoyed our celebrations under the boughs of a giant walnut tree.
Many thanks to V&V for their hospitality.
