Ston is famed for its oysters. Its surrounding waters are also just nice to gaze over

The town also has a fine circuit of town walls, which climb across a mountain. They were built to protect the salt pans in the area, once a rather more highly prized commodity than today, hence the effort. We decided that these walls did not justify the effort of climbing on a day with temperatures in the mid-thirties.

Ston was our designated lunch stop. Renowned as somewhere you can eat good seafood without bursting the bank account, Thibault and I decided to go for the seafood platter for two. A very good choice, but boy was that a lot of seafood.

The town is nice too for a short stroll. To be fair it isn't much more than gift shops and restaurants, but there are worse ways to spend  a few minutes after a big lunch.

 Being a warm afternoon, we decided to break our onward journey to Split with a break on a beach. Now few beaches on this coast are sandy. They are mostly pebble and shingle. Not somewhere I would go for a beach holiday, but in appearance (as opposed to comfort) they take some beating. It is a very attractive coastline.
