A stunning purple sunset —
And puppy kisses:
What could be better?

The Old City of Dubrovnik in southern Croatia is very old.
Dating back to the 7th century, it has been built and re-built over hundreds of years.
It has a wide variety of churches and other buildings —
Byzantine, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque.
The restored roof tiles look good
Against the old stone.
The city walls were built in the 14th and 15th centuries
And encircle what is now the ‘modern’ city of Dubrovnik.
About 42,000 people live in those old houses and flats!

Late summer evening —
The sky is sizzling as the sun goes down.
If you’re a dog, then you run,
Jump and enjoy!
For more summer sizzle, please go to Skywatch.
After three months of drought, forest fires and extreme heat,
The weather has finally turned cool and rainy.
It sure looks good!

The yin and yang
Skimming the lilac-coloured
Water of the sunset
And floating off into eternity.

Lokrum Island is a short boat ride away from the hustle and bustle of Dubrovnik, Croatia.
It’s a nature reserve dominated by wild bunnies and peacocks and peahens.
The hens had just had their babies – here they are doing some synchronized grooming.
The peacocks are pretty serious about grooming too!
His head seems to have disappeared into his feathers.
Later on, the well-groomed peacock
Sat and enjoyed the view
Of the stones
And the peacock blue waters.

“Don’t mind us!
We’ll just wait here
While you take hundreds of photos
Of the gorgeous sunset!”

One of the dogs’ favourite places for a swim
Is the jetty next to the floating sauna on our local lake.
I like it too —
Because of all the photo opportunities it gives!
It’s a peaceful place in the early mornings,
Where you can meditate on clouds and their reflections.
(Photos taken in early May.)

A hot sunset
Sizzles over the lake.
A mother duck and her babies swim by.
Peace descends on the water
In the form of strawberry crush.

The view from our balcony in Dubrovnik, Croatia,
We could see the Old Town and
Its massive walls (dating back to the 16th century),
As well as the Island of Lokrum
And a peaceful pink sunset over the bay.
