October 21 Kotor Montenegro

Kotor had intrigued me since I started doing research on where I wanted to go. The natural beauty had me looking forward to our stop. Kotor is situated in a most secluded tip of Boka Kotorska bay, in the northern part of the Montenegro coast on the Adriatic Sea. . Kotor Bay is the deepest natural fjord-like bay in the Mediterranean Sea, and the scenery around it (including the steep mountains which come almost straight down to the waters edge) is spectacular.

Stretching some 4.5 km directly above and east of the Old Town, on almost vertical cliffs, is the meandering upper town walls. It looks a little like a short version of the Great Wall. Climbing up the 1350 steps this would be one of our most rugged climbs of the trip with the view as a reward at the top.large_270_DSC_0289.jpg

We got up early to watch the ship come in. It was magic coming in through the misty fog and seeing beautiful view

We had priority tendering so went to the main dining room for breakfast and took tender at 0915.We were blessed with beautiful day started off with sweater jacket and would be taking that off with the long climb.
