    This wasn't on the initial itinerary but was a little, less touristy town where I attempted some arty photography.
    On Thursday we had to keep to sheltered waters so visited the mainland town of Slano where we boarded a coach for Ston. Ston is famous because of its salt pans creating a lot of salt in the original methods and we were given a talk afterward we climbed part of the "Great wall of Europe".

Again we had a town tour, so although I 'd wandered by myself in the town a week before I learnt. Probably the worst of the long history in the town was in the siege from October 1991. Thankfully most has been restored.
    We wanted a drink in town later. The coach took us to a liqueur and wine tasting. Afterward it was on to an oyster tasting, that the area is also famed. They were not quite bad although I 'm told they were not up to Bluff oyster standards but.
