8/1/17 We decided to wake up at 5 today to catch the sunrise. We walked down to the wall and waited. Unfortunately, the sun doesn't really rise over the city till 7ish, so we were a little early. After 30 mins, we decided to go back home. It was still a beautiful view and worth the morning hike. We packed up and headed to Split. It's tough to stay awake, so I dozed a bit on our drive. As we drove into town, we saw their mall and became intrigued. We decided to check it out. We walked around it for about an hour - they have the same stuff we do like Gap and Nine West, but they also had a grocery store and a post office. Pretty cool place. We got to town around noon and luckily found a parking spot near our place. We were too early to check in so we went to get lunch and a beer. It was uncomfortably hot, so we sat still till 2 when we checked in. We got our stuff and decided to head to the beach. EVERYONE was there. All the tourists go here, so it was packed. We stayed for an hour then went home. I showered and relaxed till we headed to dinner. We happened across anther Chicagoan from Lincoln Park and chatted for a bit. We passed on our wisdom from the last few days of travel then headed out. We walked the town, got some souvenirs and gelato, then headed home. I wrote out the last of my postcards then headed to bed. I'm SO glad we have air conditioning!!
