There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

-Lord Byron

from the Lakes to the Split

Dark rain clouds were forming as we piled into our car leaving the Lakes. Our best guess estimations had us on the road for about three hours until we arrived at our next destination.

Three hours for me to sit in the backseat and soak in Croatia's countryside as we zipped along the A1.
Mountainous peaks, lush fields, and amazing clouds. I'll never forget the Croatian clouds.

Old world cottages and even the occasional remnants of war from the 1990's. I loved being the nowhere Man in an unknown land with the wind on my face and the Adriatic sea in my nostrils.

These thoughts rattle around as we turn and see The Split before us.....where a new adventure awaits.

waiting for Perseid

They say the Perseid meteor shower will be visible tonight
in the empty spaces of Wyoming, I pull back the curtains
looking for celestial bodies in the heavens....
finding only clouds spinning and turning
in angry motions.
Perhaps I'll see beyond the clouds another day.
