With the first October chill, the mainly European tourists retreat from the Dalmatian coast, leaving the natural beauty, spectacular coastlines, and the 3000 years of cultural history in this newly emergent nation to the local Croatians. It?s sunny but cool in Croatia?s Krka National Park where we?ve come to see the Skradinski Buk, considered to be one of the most impressive sequences of karst waterfalls in Europe. A local woman wards off the wind in traditional style on the open upper deck of the small public boat taking us upriver.
