Having learned that Rovinj is a lively fishing port, I got up at 7am to catch the boats coming in...... but all I found was this jolly duo putting into the port with a small load of what might have been sea bass.
One fish, mangled by the nets was tossed to this wary customer
who kept looking around for competition from cats and seagulls ...
but this calico calmly waited her turn, hopeful as ever. Very nice manners for a feral cat.
I was baffled about the lack of boats until later nearing our car for the day's departure, I saw at least three monster, fishing vehicles loading their catch of sardines into a huge truck bound for Italy.
So that's where all the fishing boats were!!
Those buoys in the background look like lemons. I must be thinking of all the great fish and shellfish we have consumed in Croatia already.
We didn't mind the wait, the small staff was friendly and extremely busy... fun to watch.
I ordered mixed seafood grill and that was just right and we talked a bit to a beautiful young couple from Ireland who were already fans of the place.
As you can see, there was some very original seating ...I love places where all the rules and regulations haven't spoiled everything.
