Last night we decided to close our shop a little early – 10:30 instead of 11pm, our very short tourist season is winding down and Doka and I decided to go out for dinner, together just the two of us. There are so many restaurants in Korcula and our friends at Korcula Explorer had recommended a few places we should try. (www.korculaexplorer.com – for all your Korcula accommodation and holiday activity needs)
Unfortunately we were too late for most kitchens, as the tourist season is winding down here restaurants are closing earlier and earlier.
While we didn’t get a nice meal out (we are going to close earlier tonight!!), we saw the whole of the moon. I am still filled with the awe of it. It was a very clear night here in Korcula and our local astronomy group had their telescope set up beside the nightclub Gaudi. There were several people using the opportunity to look at the moon super close. The telescope offered such clear images of the moon.
Doka and I chatted with group members for a while and walked away talking about how nice it would be to one day own a fabulous telescope for night sky gazing.
We had some fries for dinner at Curiso, and fed Fergus a midnight snack on the way home, it was a very nice evening.
Have you ever had the chance to see the moon so close? Would love to hear about your experience.
