At this point, there was no way to get from Brac to Hvar that evening (we are talking about Saturday the 12th at this point). The taxi driver said that our options were to stay on Brac that night or possibly take a ferry to Split. Our next night (the 13th, the night I am typing this) was to be in Split anyway, so we thought we'd take that route. Unfortunately, the port we came into was not the port on Brac that services Split...the one that does (Supetar) is on the opposite side of the island. We had the driver take us all the way over to Supetar. From there, I called the place in Split (Zephyrus) that we were staying the night of the 13th, checking to see if they might have any availability on the 12th for us. They did. We boarded the next ferry out of Supetar (certain that we were headed to the right city this time!), getting into Split about 8:30 PM. We managed to make it to Zephyrus, and have been in Split since. I suppose we'll have to finally see Hvar the next time (there must be a next time!) we are over here..
The below pictures are mostly from Split during the day today, but some are from the long day of transit yesterday (Dubrovnik to Makarska by bus, then ferry to Brac, then ferry from Brac to Split). We have a 7:55 AM train in the morning (the 14th, it is a bit after midnight on the morning of the 14th as I type this) to Zagreb. From there, we immediately grab a rental car and head down to Fuzine, where half of Jen's family hails from.
