At this point we were making our way to the end of the walk.

20150527_Ecuador_008020150527_Ecuador_0080 Back to Stradun (Placa) Street, the main open urban area of Dubrovnik and the most favoured promenade and gathering place.  Of course this is the busiest area as well in the old city.  This street is the widest and most beautiful street and divides the City into the northern and southern halves.  At the same time it is the shortest route  between the western and  the eastern City gates.  The Placa street was paved in 1468.  The limestone pavement remains polished from use.  As you can see it fairly shiny and bright.

Finally it was time to head back to the hotel.  In the photo, on the left, Miles was posing for me.  Anna Lisa, behind is already on her way up.

I especially loved the pic of the interesting ship with the island. The sky gives it such interest. As usual, all the photos are terrific.

As a gardener I was intrigued by your photo of the garden. Just as I was thinking how densely packed in the buildings are in this city you showed a picture of well tended greenery. Wow!

Agreed. Your windows are always memorable especially in black and white. Also, loved the tee shirt on Roman.

Thanks for the preview, Marsha! I loved the images of the pirate ship and other water views, but your windows are always special.
