It’s quite a surprise to wake up in the morning to find that someone has placed mountains outside your window. Makarska is a lovely little town with a spectacular setting but it wasn’t as interesting as Hvar. And like other stops on our trip, it was hot. Granted, there were amazing breezes that were refreshing if one was sitting in the shade, but overall it did put limitations on our interest in exploring. We did take one very pleasant walk through the park just opposite the harbor on a hook of land that fronts the ocean.  However, after a day of sweaty sightseeing, one bad meal, and being in town as Croatia was gearing up to win their World Cup match against Nigeria, we decided to spend our second day in Makarska on the ship reading, puzzling, pooling, eating, and watching the scenery change as the anchored ship drifted into different positions throughout the day.

    Looks beautiful. Not sure I could have stayed on board relaxing, though it does sound tempting.

    We stayed in Makarska on our 2002 trip, too, in a 5 star hotel notable for having a bathroom entirely tiled in tiles that looked exactly like salami – we were glad neither of us are big drinkers! We did some trips that week, down to Dubrovnik etc, and to the worst shell museum in the world, but still liked the place. Loving your photos!
