Cavtat Croatia

 When arriving in Croatia from the south you have to do your custom formalities  (check in) in Cavtat.
After checking in we found an anchorage in Zupski Zaljev. A large bay just past Cavtat. We spent one night at anchor, but the swell was such that no one had a peaceful rest, so the next morning we lifted anchor and moved on to Gruz, approx. 1 1/2 hr cruising.
 From our anchorage to Gruz we came right past the old town of Dubrovnik. You can see it (Dubrovnik) in the back ground. Earlier in the day we saw this enormous sailing vessel with what seemed like 100 sails going across the Adriatic, only to see it anchored right in front of the old town on our way to the anchorage.  

Anchored in Gruz.

Gruz is the main harbor for Dubrovenik. The bridge in the back ground is part of the Adriatic highway which runs (as the name suggest) all around the Adriatic. After we were satisfied that the anchor was securely set we went to do some provisioning. Upon our return we were approached by a police boat who told us we could not anchor there, so we moved on (only 1/2 hr away) to the Dubrovnik marina. No room in the marina, so we ended up anchoring out front in the river. We had a very quiet, peaceful anchorage.
