The sun was rising over the water again on Thursday morning as we ate breakfast and caught another ferry—the 8:30 AM ferry across the narrow straits from Orebic to the island of Korcula. We drove to the little town of Pupnat in the center of the island, mounted our bikes and began a loop ride toward the sea. As always, we had spectacular views to the Adriatic before leaving the main road for a narrow track that wound through vineyards.
After rejoining the main road, we climbed 4 km back toward the center of the island, looped downward to the vineyard road once again and, after another 3 km climb, descended to the sea to a secluded cove for lunch.
That ended our day on bikes and left just enough time for a tour of the historic town of Korcula before taking the ferry back across the straits to Orebic.
Back at Hotel Indijan, we relaxed for an hour before Mike threw an exclamation point at us: a special lamb peka dinner at a farm atop a mountain overlooking Orebic and the straits. (52 km, 700 m)
