Day 4: Dubrovnik, Croatia (7)

Drinks sign in Dubrovnik

A sign in Dubrovnik's Old City promised refreshments with a view.


Fountain in Dubrovnik

Drinks at this were free, and so was the birdbath.


Cat with barrels

One cat, four casks.


Oranges in Dubrovnik

This orange tree was producing its crop of fruit on a back street in the city center.


Stone archway in Dubrovnik

Another street was less bucolic but equally appealing.


Rubble behind house in Dubrovnik

The ruins of a stone house were a grim reminder of the three-month Serbian bombardment (a.k.a. the Siege of Dubrovnik) that destroyed buildings and killed civilians in 1991.


Northern walls of Dubrovnik

Not far away, tourists could be seen walking the city's northern wall.


Pavement in Dubrovnik

Back in the main tourist and shopping streets, a visitor crossed a drainage channel in the stone pavement.


Porter with luggage in Dubrovnik

A porter struggled with a load of luggage.


Public WC in Dubrovnik with Turkish toilets

A visit to a public WC led to a surprise. The fixtures were modern, but not in keeping with U.S. or Western European tastes.

(Tip: The public lavatory on top of the city walls has Western-style toilets.)


L'Austral tender at Dubrovnik pier

By late afternoon, Cheryl was ready to return to L'Austral, so she headed for the Old Harbor and the ship's tender landing.


L'Austral in bay of Dubrovnik

Cheryl took these photos of L'Austral from shore and during the tender ride.


Man in hat on L'Austral tender

She also grabbed a photo of this stylish man in a Panama hat.


Moon over Dubrovnik

Tender going ashore in Dubrovnik

Later that evening, under a nearly full moon, we watched a tender from L'Austral go ashore with the lights of Dubrovnik reflected in the harbor.
