I'm Back # 2
Just adding more photos. Cavtat is 15 km south of Dubrovnik and is quite a small village/town with beautiful views over the bay...there are two harbours...one for the flash yachts which arrive day and daily and create great interest for the onlookers. The other little natural harbour housed many little boats bobbing up and down all day and provided hours of amusement watching the water taxis come and go....we also watched the tour buses from cruises arrive to our little town for a coffee stop. They all doddled off the buses and to the front where all the eateries were. One day we were sitting watching the yachts and being nosey I always asked where they were from if I didn't recognise the flag....one was from Russia (did know that flag) one from Austria (wasn't sure of it but should have know from The Sound of Music LOL!) and one from Germany. It is mystifying to me how these folks navigate to certain ports...augh...I'd certainly be lost at sea!
On one photo you will see a doorway with shutters...just look how the shape of the shutters matches the shape of the stone doorway...attention to detail here. This was a simple Bed and Breakfast place on one of the islands we visited...simple but clean and sparkling from what we could see. You can also see two sunbeds and this is the place we watched all the comings and goings....it was overshadowed by Corsican pines which gave dappled sun most of the day and we didn't get sunburned.
Until next time take care.
