Approaching Dubrovnik

Our ship

The town of Cavtat, southeast of Dubrovnik

Lobsters at a restaurant in Caveat

Statue of Baltazar Bogisic, a renowned ethnologist, jurist, and law historian 

Konavoski Dvori restaurant (we visited here in 2001), situated in an old mill next to the cascading waters of the Ljuta River

We walked through the woods to get to this restaurant in 2001. Every 100 yards or so a restaurant staffer with a tray of wines and champagne asked us if we would like some refreshment for the journey-it was magical…

This wasn’t the main restaurant from 2001 but the setting was still beautiful.

Now we headed back to the Old Town in Dubrovnik.

We were about to walk down the Old Town’s main street.

Placa or Stradun is the Main Street—it is about 300 meters long.

Church of St. Salvation. It was built after an earthquake in the 16th century. Another much more severe earthquake 150 years later did not damage the church.

Dubrovnik’s Old Town is a very crowded place.

Church of St. Blaise, the patron saint of Dubrovnik

We stopped for a refreshment break at this cafe and noticed the Asian woman behind us.

We chatted briefly; she was Japanese, traveling by herself and very stylishly dressed.

The tour over—it was back to the ship.
