Ghosts and ghouls are not my thing so let's see more pictures instead. The city of Split, Croatia, sits on a peninsula on the Dalmatian Coast of the Adriatic Sea. On a recent visit to celebrate our fortieth wedding anniversary, my husband and I hiked along the ridge of the Marjam hill, set aside as a park by the Roman Emperor Diocletian in the fourth century.The hike began with ninety-nice steps to this look out point--and that was only the beginning.
"The best part of the city," the girl in the information office said, and by the time we returned to our hotel, footsore with aching muscles (did I mention the steps?), we could almost agree with her. No crowds, no tourists. Only the beauty of the amazing world God created on a gorgeous blue-sky day. Tomorrow I'll show you pictures of Silona, a Roman city of 70,000 people in Diocletian's day.
