Despite the rain, we still walked the perimeter of town and saw the ocean from three angles: Lapad Bay, Graz Harbor, and the Adriatic Sea. The Old Town is a maze of narrow staircases and ally ways that lead to one amazing square or another. All the buildings are made of beige stone with rose colored tile rooftops. With the water surrounding the whole thing, it's really quite pretty.
But after three straight days of rain, we decided today to cut our losses and we booked an overnight ferry to go to Bari, Italy, tonight. But around noon today a miracle happened...SUNSHINE!!! It's turned into a beautiful, glorious day with the bluest skies and oceans you've ever seen. So we went back to the Old Town and climbed the famous city walls that form a barrier around the old part of the city. From the top of the walls, you are surrounded on almost all sides by georgeous blue ocean and the sound of the waves crashing. The views of the ocean and the city around you were too beautiful to describe. And the upside of all the rain was that there were barely any other tourists up there. So we've been thoroughly enjoying our fourth and final day in Dubrovnik, which more than makes up for the first three gloomy days here. If you ever have a chance, make sure to visit Dubrovnik, but do it after May when the weather is warm and sunny.
