The walled city of Dubrovnik

As we headed back to Dubrovnik on the bus it was early afternoon and our bellies were full with lunch.  That meant quiet time for the little ones, and plenty of time for me to look out the window.

The countryside was dotted with little seaside Mediterranean villages.  All the buildings are light colored, with red roofs. 

This was clearly a resort, with multiple swimming pools by the water!

Here is another amazing looking town, with tennis courts and a soccer field down by the water.

Pretty soon we were approaching Dubrovnik and had some great views from above.

Here you can see the harbor and huge old walls.

My seat companion had fallen asleep.

When we got off the bus we were supposed to follow the tour guide for a short walk through the city- but a necessary detour to the bathroom meant we were left behind.  So we wandered on our own.  These walls protected the city for centuries!

You can walk all the way around the city on the top of the walls (but we didn't).

This road was amazing, it was all smoothly polished stone.  

We also saw this beautiful church, but the sun was almost directly behind it, so it was hard to get a photo.  

Before we knew it, it was time to head back to the boat for one more night, and the next morning we'd be disembarking in Venice!
