We went to Old Town in Dubrovnik again to browse the many shops and then took a ferry to a nearby island, Lokrum, for some swimming.
Lokrum has a small, super salty lake, known as the "Dead Sea". It's a great little swimming hole!
The island is also home to peacocks galore.
And baby peacocks! We lured them to us with bits of pizza crust.

Later in the afternoon, we returned to Old Town and watched a World Cup game (USA v. Slovenia) in an Irish pub, then took a cab back to Babilon (our villa) for a group dinner at the restaurant.
Waitress offering us traditional Croatian apéritifs
I drank the purple one because she said it was "better for women".
The family-style meal began with prust (Croatian prosciutto), cheese, sardines, olives, octopus salad...
The main course of grilled meats, vegetables, and fried potatoes.
Just another lovely day in Croatia.
