4 Nights in Kotor, Montenegro

pic 015

At the time we decided on Turkey as the place we’d spend a month, Kotor, Montenegro was the other main location in the running.  The country of Montenegro, is brand spankin’ new, and just a few months older than Beckett.  (It was part of the former Yugoslavia.)

As part of our final fling before returning to the US, we spent 4 nights here.  It’s another neat walled city, but the twist is that it’s walls go right up a mountain.

There’s not a whole lot to do here, besides walk the city, climb alongside the walls, and enjoy the scenery.  But all those things are spectacular.  It really is a beautiful area.  Just not too exciting.

The old town is dotted with squares that hold restaurants

Not the stairway to heaven. Just a cool stairway.

On our second day, Mara, Beckett and I hiked up to the top of the mountain.  They enjoyed it for about 10 minutes or so, then things went South.  Nice views from up there, but the colors were a little flat since the day was overcast.

Hmm, I wonder why they have this sign?

Oh, that’s why they have the sign!

The enthusiasm on their faces is inspiring

Sigh. . .up we go again!

Finally, we got to the top and had some cool views of the bay and town

Beckett gives it 2 thumbs down

The next day, we got a few nice shots when the sun came out.
