Things are finally in motion! (video)

Still young and green, almost three years ago, I entered the local political scene with the intention of changing some things for the better and contribute to the development of our island. At the end of the tourist season of 2009 I asked for a themed session of the Town council about tourism where we would discuss problems which occur during the season but also new ideas in order to prolong it. We had a quality discussion but unfortunately most of the conclusions from the session remained as nothing more than empty words. One of my propositions was to rebuild old walking trails and mark them. Judging by expressions from some of the council members I had a feeling they didn’t quite understand what I was talking about.

Unusual players

Wild geese (Lat. Anser anser) are excellent fliers who travel over great distances. In order to traverse these massive distances with no problems these beautiful creatures constantly have to keep their feathers in excellent condition. This is why these birds spend so much time grooming their feathers. They do it even when they only stop to rest. This small flock used the occasion to pick up any nutritious snack from our ''stadium''. Let's wish them a happy journey and that they meet no hunters' gun barrels on the way to their destination.

Stari Grad covered by snow

Feb 3rd, 2012

Luckily for children, for the first time this year (and probably only one) our town and surroundings have been covered in snow since the first light. Around 5-10 cm of snow fell during the night on tree tops, roofs and public surfaces. But as our ancestors would say weather has already ''gone soft'' so snow was replaced by rain.
