Oh dear, oh dear

The cameras got new batteries last month and this was the best they could come up with!

Lokrum, Cavtat and Cats!

The end of the week included a trip to Lokrum Island, the island that is immediately visible from the old town.  Green and leafy it is mostly inhabited by peacocks and rabbits.  Both the island and the pirate boat visible in some of my photos were in Game of Thrones, as was of course the old town, wasted on four out of the five of us who haven't even seen one episode.  Viv and I also went to Cavtat for a day and managed a very quick stone stack there.  When we came back we saw more of Dubrovnik than we planned, lets just say the number 10 bus takes a different route home and we stayed on a little too long.  A last (by then, much needed) sit on the beach for another epic sunset and a last feed of the cats (three out of five widows are crazy cat ladies, mostly in denial).  Fabulous much needed holiday, I feel like I've been away much longer (in a good way!)

Montenegro, Dubrovnik rain and shine!

On Friday we headed off to Montenegro and the absolutely stunning Bay of Kotor, gaining another stamp in our passports!  Back in Dubrovnik there were some spectacular thunderstorms all week and we did end up trapped in a restaurant on Saturday, forced to drink wine and eat pancakes until it passed.  However we made up for our lazy afternoon by walking up the hill to see the sunset (there is a cable car for the less alcohol and sugar fuelled!)  Also spotted in Dubrovnik this week was the Philippe Starck designed Super Yacht A, looking all mean and moody and downright massive (her mainmast is taller than Big Ben)
