The story behind this image

During our week long stay in Croatia in the summer of 2019 my wife Liz and I spent most of our time exploring the beautiful mountains and Adriatic coastline.

But we did venture into Split on a couple of occasions, taking in the tourist sights such as the famous and well preserved Diocletian's Palace with its rather unusual Sphinx sculpture, pictured here.
