Croatia: An Excursion to the Kornati Islands
Pictured here are Ian Clark, Blinera Osmani, Prof. Jack Graves, the Tour Guide for the Kornati Excursion and Linda Kalayjian on the boat to the Kornati Archipelago/Islands. The program took a day-long boat trip to the Kornati archipelago, a group of about 130 islands and reefs off the Dalmatian coast, just across from Zadar where the Croatia program has been located from July 17 through August 6. The Kornati islands have no permanent inhabitants, as there is no spring water. Rainwater is collected, and the islands are home to vineyards, olive groves, and grazing sheep. The Adriatic Sea around the islands has a large variety of marine life.
