Dubrovnik

After a restless night on a rather uncomfortable boat, we arrived in Dubrovnik, Croatia--the Pearl of the Adriatic. It is right on the Adriatic coast, so it has wonderful view and is itself a rather gorgeous citylarge_IMG_3852.jpglarge_IMG_3864.jpg.

One especiall nice feature of the city is its medieval walls, built to defend itself from attack by sea. Now, they provide one of the nicest strolls in town with wonderful views.

Another nice view came from the top of the nearby mountain that overlooks Dubrovnik -- Mt. Srd. We went up (via gondola) for the sunset and had some great viewlarge_270_IMG_3950.jpglarge_IMG_3948.jpglarge_IMG_3959.jpglarge_IMG_3964.jpglarge_IMG_3979.jpglarge_IMG_4019.jpgs.

When we got tired of exploring the city, we went 15 minutes out into the ocean to explore one of the famed Dalmatian Islands off of the coast of Croatia. This one was peculiar because the only animal that lives on the islands are peacocks.large_IMG_4038.jpglarge_IMG_4025.jpglarge_IMG_4039.jpg

After our two days in Dubrovnik, it will be about time to mix it up culturally, and to head inland to Bosnia and Herzegovina. We'll post soon about our time there.

Initially, from a distance,I thought Dubrovnik must have been the very first Home Owners' Association. You must have white walls and an orange roof. lol.

Peacocks! Who knew.
