Gloucester, MA. September, 2009

Today, if all goes as we’ve planned, we’ll be sailing into Pula. It will be my first time in Croatia. Jay’s, too. So why is there a picture from our Labor Day Boat Party in Gloucester three years ago? Because that smiling fellow on the right is our friend Marin. A Croat. I had considered asking him how to say a few simple phrases in Croatian, things like “hello” and “thank you.” But I worried that he might teach me words that were, well, naughty instead. Don’t you think he has a playful and mischievous look about him? (Today, Pula. Tomorrow, Split, Marin’s hometown.)
