A farm outside Dubrovnik

We signed up for an excursion in Dubrovnik that would take us out into the countryside of Croatia, to a family farm where we would see a traditional dance and music concert.  Then we'd get some time to explore the city.

The area around the port was beautiful and I loved how light colored all the houses are!  They all have terra-cotta colored roofs.

The coastline is dotted with small towns right up against the water.

There were beautiful estates along the highway.

We passed some buildings that had been destroyed during the war in the early 90s.  It's so strange to think that this area had a war so recently, and has rebounded so quickly!

We saw this winding road close to the airport.

This language looks really difficult!

The house we were visiting was made out of old beautiful stones and had many additions over time.

We were greeted with music and singing by people wearing traditional Croatian dress.

That's quite a cork collection!

Another windy photograph!

This guy played this  3 stringed instrument with gusto, sometimes stomping his foot while he played.

After the music we went inside for lunch.  Maverick wanted Maddox to leave him alone!

Bread, cheese, meat, and wine.  It was delicious!

Later in the day we headed back to Dubrovnik.

The lunch looks delish! I like the red shoes in the traditional costumes!
