A beautiful day. We were met outside Pile Gate at the Hotel imperial Hilton near the garage and transported to the large coach. We had a well informed tour guide who entertained us all day by being comical and interesting with his knowledge of Croatia as well as Montenegro. The trip went by Cavtat, Cilipi and Konavle Valley and on to the Bay of Kotor, which was vast. Here after a quick tour of some Roman mosiacs at Risan. We caught a boat over to the man made island and the Church "Our Lady of the Rocks" where a local tour guide from Perast, the quiet village from which we departed on the boat, explained the church, how and why the island was built and about the local sea captains. Very interesting talk and we wandered around this small island taking photos across the lake to the huge backdrop of mountains. I managed to capture a huge cruise ship on the bay with a local fisherman in his small craft together...the big and the small. Kotor the town also on the water, has high 4.5 km walls and a fort on the hill above.Here we also had an well informed and funny guide walk us through the stari grad,(old town). Then after we had a bit of a wander around, we had time to enjoy a lovely meal on a piazza. This was a day tour that I will remember for ages to come.
