I thought I’d solve my beach problem with a weekend trip to the Croatian coast. I’d spend the whole day in the sun, come back with a tan, wear my new summer outfits; it would be bliss. Unfortunately, the weather had other plans. As I stepped off the train in Rijeka, I felt like I was plunged right into a Perth winter – bucketing rain, windy, and miserable cold – great for nostalgia, not so great for the beach. But despite the temporary winter, I did enjoy being back by the ocean.
Ps. These seagulls are as big as cats!
