We have been back from Dubrovnik for a few days now. All the washing etc associated with hol’s is now done and pictures are sorted so I am ready to share a few with you. I hope you enjoy
Oz having breakfast on our tiny, but pretty, balcony. Below was a tiny garden and then the city walls and the sea.
Views from our bedroom window the island on your right is Locrum Island.
Ozzies bedroom looked over the old town and out to the old town harbour.
VIEWS OF THE OLD TOWN taken on our tour of the old city walls.
the Maritime Museum and Aquarium just outside the city walls
looking down the main street of the old town inside the walls.(EDITED TO SAY) for some reason this picture shows blurred on my computer. I have tried removing and reloading but its still the same, however if you click to enlarge it then it will be perfectly clear again. Sorry about that.
Our tiny balcony view from the City Walls
Someone needed a rest
The old harbour. (There is a new harbour where the big cruise ships come in but it is further round the coast.)
You may now realise why we had such fantastic views, though there was a price to pay in the amount of steps we had to climb each night. I kept telling myself it was good exercise and I would lose weight. Exercise it may have been but I did not lose any weight in fact quite the opposite unfortunately – not that I would blame the best ice cream we have ever tasted it would have been sinful not to eat at least one everyday.
As we looked out over the beautiful Locrum Island every morning we had to take a ferry to see it at close range. It is a lovely island with beautiful woodland walks and an old monestry. Though I took lots of pictures most of them were too dark to see. However I did manage a few of the lovely peacocks that roam everywhere.
BOSNIA AND HERTZAGOVINA
We decided to have a day out and visit the historic city of Mostar, many people will remember this from the iconic bridge which featured so much on the news during the wars in the early 1990’s.
It was a wonderful day with stops at Ston and Han Positelj on the way to Mostar.
After the war the people of Mosta, wanted to replace there Iconic bridge, which had been blown up during the bombing. As they wanted to build in the way it had been done centuries earlier, they built this mini version first to practice the skills of times so long past.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my pictures. I do hope you enjoyed them all.
