We woke up one morning and found this moored up between our hotel and the island of Lokrum
It's not the most beautiful yacht in the world is it? I mean, at first sight it doesn't even look like it has windows. If I had a spare $450 million, I'm not sure that this is what I'd would spend it on. No accounting for taste eh? Apparently it is owned by a Russian billionaire and is called the Super Yacht A. It was only moored up for 24 hours but certainly caused a lot of interest from everyone staying at the hotel!
It was a day of mixed weather the day that they arrived and we headed off into the city to investigate some of the indoor places of interest such as the Old Pharmacy at the Franciscan Monastery. We were obviously not looking our best that day as the guy on the door offered us concession tickets even though we were officially 4 years too young to qualify!
Outside for a quick cappuccino
Then we bumped into someone who reminded us how quickly the year was passing
I couldn't resist taking a photo of this young lady ...
... even though she was a bit creepy!
And this odd looking gargoyle who has a bit of a story to tell. Unlike most gargoyles, this one is only a couple of feet above the ground and if you look closely, his head is completely smooth like marble. This is because he has a tradition attached to him. Legend has it that if you hop onto his head, facing the wall, and can take off your shirt without falling off, you will be lucky in love.
And that is Dubrovnik - such an interesting and attractive place. We had a lovely week there and were sad to see that sunset for the last time.
