Welcome to Croatia

And It has been a wonderful welcome. We arrived in Dubrovnik last night after flight delays (ugh) and were greeted with fireworks marking the opening of their summer festival. Fun! It has been one of our easiest arrivals with the bus waiting right outside the terminal and taking us straight to the old town. Our host was waiting for us at the gate and took us to our room where he had a chilled bottle of wine waiting for us in honor of K’s birthday.

We wandered out into the center of the old town to the Stradun (main street) lined with fire torches and capped with a stage. The festival is a major local event. It seems everyone in town was out on the streets and dressed to be seen. We walked around, ate a seafood dinner and enjoyed some of the music before turning in for the night.

Today has been gorgeous despite the forecasts for storms. We have soaked up the sun on the rocks of the old wall and the ‘sandy’ (read pebbly) beach. It has been wonderfully relaxing with more to come.
