After a very hectic few weeks and two days of nine hour drives, our
two week Croatian holiday started with the family pact of:
'No driving and leisurely days unwinding in Lapad Bay for the first four days'
Lapad Bay is a peninsula located about 3 km Northwest from the Old Town
and is where we stayed for our Dubrovnik adventure.
A perfect place to relax and let the stresses of everyday life fall away.
We filled our four days walking along the seaside paths by the Adriatic, looking out to the
Elaphite Islands. The sea such a beautiful azure blue, enticing us to head down one
of the many paths to the sea, and dive into the clear, warm water.
We hired pedal boats and made some fabulous memories,
swimming, snorkelling and having fun in the sea.
Little, private seaside platforms were discovered, nestled in between
cliffs covered in greenery, places to soak up the sun, refresh in the clear, blue water.
The promenade has lots of seaside restaurants and bars to stop and recharge,
a place to enjoy the scenery, taste the spectacular, fresh and delicious
local seafood... sample the local wine!
Walks around the area uncovered, the port. Boats languidly waiting to take tourists
island hopping, fishing boats back with the catch of the day.
The salt in the air revitalizing, the scenery so beautiful.
Watching the sun set from our apartment after four days of
relaxing bliss, a calmness enveloped us, worries overthrown.
It is amazing how you can feel like a local in just a few days.
We were settled in, ready to look further afield, ready for adventure!
