Makarska is a town of two parts when it comes to the seafront, separated by a small peninsula. On one side is a longish beach (pebbly, like almost all the beaches we saw), on the other is a fine harbour, where ferry and day-trip boats are based. This sculpture on the harbourfront proved an unfailing attraction with all the tourists. It was erected to celebrate 100 years of tourism. It proved very difficult to capture the quirkiness of it (the man's hands, for instance, are exaggerated in size and wonderfully humorously done. I don't know if it was the locals or the tourists who were responsible, but more often than not we saw a fresh flower placed in the female figure's hand a nice touch.
