L'Austral Cruise Photos
From: L'Austral cruise review
Day 6: Hvar, Croatia (2)
After leaving the pier, we walked toward Hvar's Franciscan Monastery and its 16th Century church. Next to the monastery, sunbathers and swimmers (mostly families) were enjoying themselves on a small protected beach.
Several dozen small boats were moored near the beach, with their bows pointing toward the sea and L'Austral.
God and Mammon had reached a détente behind the waterfront,
with a souvenir vendor selling t-shirts alongside the Franciscan monastery and
Not far away, a couple and their dog arrived at the shoreline in an inflatable boat. The dog jumped out of the boat and climbed up the rocks to the sidewalk.
Another friendly dog meandered along the waterfront and
stopped to say hello.
A beagle shared a blanket with a mother and her children. (Can you guess which person is holding the ice-cream cone?)
Just so we wouldn't seem biased toward swimmers and dogs, Cheryl posed for a waterfront photo with L'Austral in the distance.
