This is going to be a combined entry including my last day in Split and the drive to Dubrovnik as well as the video of Dubrovnik.
 
While in Split we also took a short boat ride down the river to a place where they have a set luncheon which was actually pretty good if you discount the wait and the hornets that joined us.  In fact that was one thing on this trip that was really bad since I am somewhat alergic (swell up like a balloon).  We were alway having to wave our napkins to try to get them to leave.  It was very annoying, but luckily we did not get bit.  Someone on the boat trip did but she did not seem to have a really bad reaction like I have.  Anyway some pretty shots of the river are included.  
We took the coastal road to Dubrovnik and I managed to get a lot of great pictures of the sea, islands and coastal towns both through the window and at several stops we were able to make.  Those Red Roofs certainly do look great against the blue sea and green forest.  Unfortunately I lost all my pictures of the town of Dubrovnik which I just loved.   I do have two videos, both of the main street that runs to the Church, one that Luka took of me scooting  along.  The stone streets are so old and well built that they have become almost smooth as a regular sidewalk.   The place has been commercialized that is true but it is tastefully done with wide clean walkways and beautiful preserved ancient buildings.  I was not able to walk the stairs to the top of the wall as I would have liked, but still enjoyed the town very much.  It really does have a sort of peaceful aspect to it and those red roofs and blue/green waters are wonderful.  See the pictures attached for the coastal trip and then go back and click on the videos to see me riding through the Old Town of Dubrovnik.
