May 30 & 31 – Rugged Mountains + Turquoise Sea + Our Own Private Flat = FUN!!
We had another travel day by bus taking us to Montenegro and the city of Budva. Discovered in the 5th century BC, Budva is 3,500 years old, which makes it one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic sea coast. It is well known for its sandy beaches, diverse nightlife, and examples of Mediterranean architecture. Budva has seen many turbulent years in its history and was devastated by an earthquake in 1979 which destroyed much of the old town. The city has been built back up to its original form, however, and tourism is high.
|Shari like to collect seashells and/or rocks. She is trying to get something from every sea on our journey.|
|A spacious living room and bedroom...with a big screen TV. A balcony was located behind the sliding glass doors with a table and chairs and clothesline to dry your clothes.|
|A very nice kitchen|
The first day it rained quite a lot, so we stayed indoors, but the second day was gorgeous, so it was time for a trip to the beach.
|Beautiful rock formations along the coastline's path to a hidden cove.|
|The sun bathers were out, but why didn't we bring our swim suits?|
|Maybe it's because we didn't want to show off our "winter fat"|
|I LOVE BLUE - blue Eiffel Tower shirt, blue sky, blue water|
|WOW...cool statue! I used to be able to do that before my double hip replacement.|
|OK - I'll try it again, if only I could get my balance and not fall off this rock into the water.|
|Here we go! Is my leg up as high as hers?|
|What a gorgeous Spring Day in Montenegro.|
|There is always a wall around these medieval cities. This little cubby hole would have been fun to hide it while searching the ocean horizon for invaders.|
|It's amazing that these rock walls have stood up so well, but remember...there was a terrible earthquake in 1979, so much of this old town was rebuilt. Well done!|
|The sun has definitely been enjoyable today in Budva, another Balkan city with we have thoroughly enjoyed visiting!|
