Montenegro to Croatia ~ in the rain again

Saturday, May 3rd ~ Starting in Montenegro traveling to Croatia

Our day started out beautifully with a pinkish sunrise and quickly went down hill from there as it once again started to rain and then rain some more.  By now the rumbling on the bus was along the lines of “keeping our eyes open for Noah’s Ark”.

This was primarily a travel day as we progressed through Montenegro en route to Croatia. The scenery did not disappoint, and I was sad that my pictures through the rainy bus window were quite useless.  I had read about and seen magnificent pictures from this area, so the photographer in me was in mourning most of the day.

To break up our long ride, we had a stop in Cetinje to visit King Nikola’s Museum.  It was not really much of a wow, but it did give us a chance to stretch our legs and move around a little.

The Dalmatian Coast (East coast of the Adriatic Sea) and the Bay of Kotor (Boka) are among the most scenic places along the route and are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Kotor

The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded by fortifications built during the Venetian period.  It is located on the Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska), one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. Some have called this the southern-most fjord in Europe, but it is a ria, a submerged river canyon.” ~ Wikipedia

Traffic was backed up at the border crossing and it took almost 1.5 hours to exit Montenegro and then get clearance into Croatia.

And then Dubrovnik came into view!
