Photographers John and Linda Mirro present their journey up the Dalmatian coast on a 48-passenger ship at 7 p.m. tonight at the North Branch Library in Silverthorne. The slide show is the second in a free series from Friends of the Library.
Entitled "Cruising the Dalmation Coast," the visual journey begins on a cruise in Piraeus, one of Greece's major ports. From there the Mirros made their way through the Corinth Canal and the Gulf of Corinth into the Adriatic Sea. Among the ports they visited were Itea, Greece - to see the ruins of Delphi - and Corfu, where they visited Sisi's Palace.
Other sites included a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Albania, a breathtaking fjord in Montenegro and Korcula, where they saw what many think was the birthplace of Marco Polo. Vistas along the way included lakes, waterfalls and cascades. The final destination was Lake Bled, in the Julian Alps of Slovenia, where they took a rowboat excursion to the church in the middle of the lake.
"These are beautiful, historic areas and towns that many people never get to see," John Mirro said. "We look forward to sharing our slides and stories of this wonderful trip."
Tonight's presentation takes place in the Blue River Room of the North Branch Library, 651 Center Circle in Silverthorne.
