Dubrovnik 2 - the islands

One day we went on boat trip to the Elaphite Isalnds, visiting the three largest islands, Kolocep, Sipan and Lopud.


We didn't have very long at Kolocep but we managed to have a quick swim





Next we had lunch on the boat before heading to Sipan, where we had time to explore and swim a bit:




Next we went to Lopud where we walked over the hill to a lovely beach on the other side of the island:







Another day we went to the more distant island of Mljet which contains a National Park with two large salt water lakes. There is a monastery on an island in the middle of the larger lake.











We also visited the island of Lokrum which is just in Dubrovnik harbour, just a 15 minute ferry journey from the Old Port. It is a delightful island, with several pleasant cafes, a small saltwater lake, an old monastry and an old fort.













There are still a few more excursions to report on including the trip up in the cable car, the long walk up down again and exploring a local fort - i think that will be another entry...

Those all look gorgeous, especially the last island with the lovely lake. I like the way the peacock muscled into the photograph. Christopher looks really well and you all seem to have had a superb time.

*sigh* you take such magnificent photos. I love them all. I wish we could pop into some other country... the water looks absolutely stunning.
