Reason #13: a giant pine tree that’s over a 100 years old
Whenever I come back to Brač it’s the sight of this tree more than anything else that means home to me. It’s somehow comforting to know it’s been there for so long and that its roots are so strong.
If you look closely at the above pic you’ll see that’s it’s strapped in the middle by big tyre tubes, tied by steel wires. The whole harness secures the tree to the house. The house too has a special story, but that’s for another post.
The tree has been damaged in a storm recently and lost the whole left side, but I wanted to put up this photo where it’s still in its old glory.
And this is the view of the house with the tree from our place:
Ingrid, I think you took these pics. Thanks!
