Travels in Dubrovnik – Day 5

Saturday 25 August

This part of my blog should probably be called Travels on the Dalmatian Coast near Dubrovnik because we did not venture towards the walled town.  Instead we took a short walk up a hill and through the trees opposite our hotel which the receptionist told us offered stunning views.  And the receptionist was right.

The path behind our hotel (The grandly titled Dubrovnik Palace)

We returned to the hotel shortly before lunch and I went snorkelling again to cool down.  There are a variety of fish of different shapes and sizes, some with stripes and some with just a single dot near the tail.  I have no idea what they are called but they certainly held my interest.

My companion and I shared a pizza for lunch.  Its arrival was greatly delayed as it smelt like the first offering had been burnt.  When it arrived the second offering was okay.  The waitress asked us how it was and confided that there were problems in the kitchen as the cook had never cooked a pizza before.  But we were in no hurry and spent the rest of the day resting and reading before venturing down to Lapad Bay again for our evening meal.
