|Lookout point with Korčula in the distance.|
Korčula is about two hours north of Dubrovnik, and I had been tipped off to how great it was by others who had visited.
The atmosphere is relaxed, the water crystal clear, and the food well priced. We stayed for hours.

Once I’d cleaned the chocolate of my butt, I looked up and saw the sky lit up like it was on fire. Sunset in Croatia is so dramatic!
We headed back into the old town before it got dark. The sky kept changing hue.

Dubrovnik sure put on a good show for my birthday. I don’t think it had anything to do with it being the opening of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, and the President being in town or anything.
People lined the streets. I know I’ve used the word festive a lot these past few weeks… but there’s no other word to describe it! Beautiful choral music filled the streets as thousands tried to catch a glimpse of the ceremony.
At about 10:30, Paul and I sat by the beach to watch fireworks over the harbour. They were spectacular.
The perfect end to a great birthday and a great trip. We flew out the next morning. I forgot to send the postcards.
