Dubrovnik—Rain, Rain and More Rain

IMG_6878 Greetings from Croatia, home of Davor Rimac, a member of the 1994 Razorback National Champions basketball team.

The word for the day was “wet.”  It was overcast and foggy as we docked in Dubrovnik, but a light drizzle began as we set out on our afternoon excursion.  Our first stop was the old city inside the ancient city walls.

From there we journeyed to a small seaside resort town.  As we enjoyed cappuccino at a small sidewalk cafe, large umbrellas protected us from the elements as the rain began in earnest.

Here’s hoping for better weather tomorrow when we visit Kotor, Montenegro.

So interesting! Coincidentally, I watched 30 for 30 on ESPN last evening and it was "Once Brothers" The story of Vlade Divac (Serbian) and Drazen Petrovic (Croatian) who played together on the Yugoslavian National BB team, became like brothers, both came to the US to be part of the NBA and then were torn apart by the civil war in their homeland.

It was very touching, very moving. I would watch it again in a heart beat!

As Dad and I discovered, a little rain doesn't necessarily spoil things. Places (especially scenic or old places, like where you were) take on an ethereal quality in the rain they do not possess in the sunshine.

I've never been to Croatia but hubs had a meeting at a beautiful resort there and really loved it. Sorry for the rain but at least it sounds like you still managed to see and do. Hoping you get sun in Montenegro...I can't help but think James Bond : )
