After an afternoon on Lockrum Island, Jo and I went on a mini-shopping spree, followed by a short rest back at Villa Odak. Then we meandered downhill again to old Dubrovnik. There we had a repeat dinner not to far from the ferry dock.

While we nibbled at appetizers in the 'al fresca' setting, a bridal party waltzed by. Jo loves people and she called out to the bride, letting her know just how pretty she was - and as you can see from the photo, the bride is a treat in tulle!
After dinner we each took a walk around Old Dubrovnik. I knew something was being celebrated but was clueless as to what.
|Lots of festivities and lots of music in Old Dubronik|
|I meandered over to one of the old buildings which was spectacular|
|The marvelous lighting added to the wonderment for me|
|Inventive clock tower|
|This spot was wanting a Gregorian chant playing in the background|
|Can't even imagine the purpose of this beautiful hall|
Turns out there was a festival in progress. The Kinookus Food Film Festival, an international event, happening every September. Jo and I just stumbled into it. The festival celebrates the regional wines, purest olive oils, and my favorite, shellfish (yum!). Oh, and there is a marathon, I suppose is held to take off some of the food accrued festival fat. As the internet describes the event, it is a '....feast of diversity, unity, meetings, ideas, games and enjoyment. Now, I didn't partake of any of the featured food or film, but I did visit one of the displays, celebrating many film stars, old and new.
|Winter is coming. Spring too, if you only wait long enough.|
