Kotor, the other side of the wall

After leaving the gates of Old Town, I made my way to the docks where all the boats were.  I wanted to see the water, see the rest of the city and stare back at Old Town from a different perspective. The docks of Kotor looked out into the water and the surrounding mountains and after the rain, it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.  There were some clouds still around just chilling around the mountains, still trying to censure things like it was their job. The sun was shining and reflecting off of the water and it was absolutely beautiful.

When I stood on the dock and turned back around to look at Old Town, I could see the church in the distance just overlooking all of Kotor as if it was taunting me for being too terrified and clumsy to walk up the rain covered steps.  Regardless it was still beautiful.

I took some time at the dock then started walking along the side of the road and eventually ended up at a park near where our bus was parked.  I stood there and took in the sights around me.  Kotor is small, and from what I could tell, not a lot going on while we were there.  Our bus was parked near a shopping mall which seemed to be the most modern and largest building around.  Otherwise, everything else was relatively small and it looked like you could walk from one side of Kotor to the other in just a few minutes.

I hung out at the park for a bit, people watching, mountain watching and then just overall staring off into the world and being so grateful that I had found this random tour last minute.

When it was time to head back to the bus, I crossed the street and made my way to the bus pass the canal.  Honestly, I think that this was actually a moat that was built around Old Town to help protect it but the water was so unbelievable reflective and green.  You could make out all the intricate details of the mountains in the reflection in the water, and it was beautiful.  Especially with the slightly overcast skies after the rain. I stood there for a bit, stared at the taunting church in the mountain and then made my way to to the bus where we ended up waiting an extra half an hour because part of our group didn’t realize that we were supposed to meet at 1215 and not 1250…

Next stop: Budva.
