Nighttime Korcula - The Magic in the Adriatic during a Yacht Charter Holiday

Nighttime Korcula - The Magic in the Adriatic during a Yacht Charter Holiday

The old town of Korcula made me want to write poetry.. or write songs… or dance and laugh and make merry!

The old world charm was oozing out of the place and the design of the place - all on a hill with a wide promenades and narrow, curved streets leading off left an right captured our imaginations.

It was cute and quaint with buildings that were in a wonderful state of preservation — and some were undergoing restoration. I recall with warmth the friendliness of the art gallery owners and how proud the locals were — and who wouldn’t be with such magnificent Venetian facades lying across from your doorway.

The whole place had me in raptures and I wanted to capture it all on film, but instead chose to shut my eyes against the wind and imagine myself living back in the day of horse-drawn carriages and silk gowns. The main church was one of the buildings being restored at the time, and so we were unable to see it properly. Which is a good thing because Korcula is now in my heart and I’ve gotten the idea that I really must go back there and explore the streets some more — and hope for weather that is a little less windy!

Yes, the wind was really blowing that night and we were exhausted from all of that wine tasting (please see my blog, "Peljesac Peninsula Wine Trail: Ah, the beauty, ah, such flavour! “) … so we really could not do that visit to the town justice, even though we managed to circumnavigate it twice! Korcula is a must-see when you are in harbour… and I recall that the yachts look so tranquil in the morning, after the wind had died down and the sun was shining onto the polished brass fittings!
