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.

Dog in Hvar, Croatia

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.

Friendly Croatian dog

Another friendly dog meandered along the waterfront and stopped to say hello.

Beagle in Hvar, Croatia

A beagle shared a blanket with a mother and her children. (Can you guess which person is holding the ice-cream cone?)
