Walking to Cavtat

A van took us to the village of Cilipi, about 20 miles down the coast and inland. The weather was cold and cloudy.

From Cilipi we walked to Cavtat, a very nice walk, probably six miles. On the way we saw a shepherd and his sheep, with a precious donkey leading the sheep. The donkey was really sweet and so protective of the sheep.

Cavtat, our destination, was really nice. It is considered a tourist resort area, and it was easy to see why. It is on a peninsula jutting into the sea, nice beach, very attractive town.

It was starting to rain a little, and Jenny left us here with instructions how to get the bus to Dubrovnik. A group of us went into a bakery/coffee shop and had some lunch. Then I decided to walk around the peninsula, although it was raining.

As I walked, it started to rain hard, hail, big wind, thunder and lightning. By this time I was halfway around the peninsula and between the sea and a public park ... nowhere to take shelter. I had to keep walking, and got to the bus station just in time to get on a bus leaving for Dubrovnik with most of our group in it.

On a nice day, Cavtat would be delightful.
