It was really nice to sleep in, we've been on the road for some time now and it felt good to get a couple extra hours of snooze time in before our day of exploring. The first thing you are going to see in Dubrovnik is how beautiful it is. The second is how many tourists that there are here, lots! And, the third is just how expensive it is; significantly more expensive than anywhere else we have been. Now I'm don't think I'm overly cheap but come on, is it really worth 6 bucks for a little cup of coffee? Anyway, off we went with our city map in hand, and we still managed to walk right by the entrance for the tram that takes you up for a view of the city. Once again proves that we would probably lose if we were in the amazing race. We found it eventually and the views were amazing. Stayed at the top for a while enjoying a drink overlooking the city.
After coming down it was off to the beach located about 5 min from our apartment. Luckily the sun has stayed out all day, as yet another thunderstorm hit overnight. The beach here is mainly rocky, I managed to go in for a dip, Linda on the other hand just got her feet wet. Seems the rocks were just a little too much for her tender feet. We spent the rest of the afternoon there soaking up the nice sun.
We found a nice steakhouse for dinner, neither of us had steak but both enjoyed our meal. Got back to the apartment just in time, as you probably guessed, another storm has come in.
