Notice anything special in this picture?!?!
Yesterday we took a local bus from Korcula to Lombarda, a small coastal town with not much more than a supermarket, restaurant and beaches. On our walk on the path by the sea we saw this small island.
We guessed it to be about 100 yards away from the mainland so we decided to go for the swim to have a nice quiet place to relax for the day. We were both excited about the trip until Geoff thought it was necessary to take a bag full of "things" across to the island by swimming with it over his head all the way there. DeeDee questioned his judgement but Geoff would not be deterred. Trying to get into the water was a comedy of errors. DeeDee waddled in with her sausage foot (see pic and story below!) and Geoff found that wet flip-flops have absolutely no traction when he fell directly on a sea urchin and had the spikes in his ass to prove it! We eventually made it there safe and sound but found the island already inhabited.
So it was just us, the sheep, a few lizards and sweet little purple wild flowers on the island. After catching our breath and taking in the sights Geoff decided to set up the camera to take a picture of us. Geoff set up the camera for the picture but little did DeeDee know that he had set it up to video record the proposal.
We spent the rest of the day on our island enjoying the moment and Croatian beer and peanuts which were transported to the island at great personal risk, but well worth it.
Everything was perfect and I could not have asked for a better proposal nor a better man to spend my life with!!
We can't wait to celebrate our engagement with you all! xoxo
