Flat seas

When we were in Croatia last year (last year!) we’d wake up and the first thing we would do was stare out the windows of our house to the view below. And why wouldn’t you? Look at it!


We’d be looking for flat seas. Or a bonitža as it was called I think (I have NO idea if that spelling is correct). That meant good swimming and just an all round good day. It would usually just last the morning before the wind picked up, but it was a joy to say “It’s a bonitža out there. A bonitža!” and a joy to look at, and best of all, swim in. You could float in that salty, clear water for hours.

I hope that 2015 is a bonitža for you! Calm, clear seas for you to enjoy and float in. Happy New Year friends!


  1. Same to you, Beth! Happy new year! It’s not starting out too bad at all. x

  2. I could do with a bonitza year, for sure. Happy new year Beth, to you and yours.

  3. Happy New Year, Beth to you and the family. It’s a new year of new experiences for our family – one starting prep, one in kindy and me taking a career change – but hopefully a good one, with lots of calm, clear seas! xo
