Beautiful there. The lake seems to be connected with the sea. Is this fresh water?

Water is clear and warm, its one of my favorite places in Croatia.

Fresh water plus Obrovac... whereas to my mind Obrovac is the translation of "thirst". In 2003, while pedalling down to Greece, at a certain point, while being a bit distracted, I suddenly saw... a ship close to my anterior wheel. What was happening? I was in Maslenica, the bridge had been destroyed during the war and never reconstructed, such that the asphalt ended, cut like a piece of cheese, over a precipice of maybe 100 metres depth. All this without any reasonable prior warning, only a bit of gravel strewn on the asphalt, which I had interpreted as a work made by rain rather than as a stop. Luckily the brakes did their work.
The only working bridge to Zadar was that or the motorway, where my bicycle was not allowed to ride: this forced my to a long detour to Obrovac; it was noon, and the temperatures in the interior were close to 40 degrees that summer. Don't remember how many bottles of water I emptied once in Zadar!

I see, that you were in many places, which I visited. Its true, Croatian climate in summer is very hot. Last year I was close to Velebit, but the temperature discouraged me to walks in mountains.

Curiousy enough, an hour ago I was dining with a Swiss man and here where I am, under the Cerro Torre, we were speaking of... the Biokovo. Namely, he climbed it, while I had to leave it where it was in that summer of 40 degrees.
But I have the fixed idea to go once in winter on Velebit and Biokovo, in order to chase Fernsichts on the Italian Appennino.
Cheers, Alberto.

As I know, the highest summit in Biokovo is reachable by car. The best option on hot summer day ;)
