Interesting vacation tip:
The nearby Sea Organ of Zadar, Croatia is a unique sea experience. Gerard of Presurfer has published a post about the Croatian Sea Organ designed by architect Nikola Basic. Air holes located in the top row of Sea Organ steps whistle the harmonic sounds of wave movement pushing a column of water through 35 immersed musically tuned plastic tubes. For more information and to hear the Sea Organ, please surf over to the Sea Organ Presurfer Post.
