October in Northern Croatia

Roadside veggies

The next day we hit the backroads and traveled through the breath-taking countryside of northern Croatia. The hills and byways were full of vineyards, pastures, fields and tiny hamlets with spotless homes and farms.  Church spires spoke to the faithful and medieval fortresses spoke of a history full of waves; Roman, Ilyrian, Venetian, Austrian, Turkish... Produce was lined up under umbrellas along the roadside and morning mist gave the entire area an ethereal air. 
One of the coolest things we saw was a family that had 'dressed up' their vegetables into giant people. We stopped and tried to find if they had any pumpkins (not knowing the word for it, we were trying to pantomime while saying 'big orange' in Croatian!!).
