I wrote a long and detailed post earlier this morning about our trip from Tivat and Porto Montenegro and how we ended up at ACI Marina Dubrovnik. Alas, the internet ate all of my prose (it was probably a critique!)
Here are the pictures from the post at least . . . next up Megan and I make our second trip to the old town of Dubrovnik.
Here are some highlights from the last two days:
Megan working (without being asked) while we waited to sign out of the country at the customs dock of Porto Montenegro.
The pharmacy museum’s central court had this beautiful garden. Interestingly the museum had an amazing collection of books on medicine from the 16th century and later, as well as some nice art and a few shells (and associated holes in the walls) from recent conflicts. A little eclectic, but very interesting.
I don’t know much about christianity in this muslim area, but this church had one of the nicest sanctuaries (is that the right term?) I have seen outside of Rome. I didn’t put the ceiling photo in here, but it is beautifully painted. I believe the painting is from the 20th century mind you, despite the church being from the middle of the last millennium.
You can’t see the staircase to get to this hallway, but it is beautiful, and Megan gets lost in the white marble, so this is a better photo.
The greenery really makes this alley stand out.
Megan thinks this is where the walk of shame was filmed (GOT – season 4?)
The old town clock . . . it wouldn’t work as my image for the post . . . but this clock (and the iron chests, of which I have no pictures) are wonderful works of craftsmanship.
