Our hotel in Hvar overlooked the harbour. From the hotel we could see the Spanish Fortress perched on the top of the hill. Looking through the window, we were fascinated with the view of the town with its orange roof buildings, the blue sea, the white limestone block paving, the palm trees and the ever changing pattern of the yachts swaying inside the harbor. Where I am based, I always like climbing up to the Peak and have a magnificent view of Hong Kong foreshore and the Victoria Harbor, both during day time and night time. At Hvar , both the day and night views are just enchanting.
When night fell, I was tempted to take some night shots of the lovely view with the harbor lights. Without a tripod, all I could do was to hold my breath and support the camera off somewhere firm. Back home, I was able to match some of the day and night photos.
In the afternoon, the boats have returned to the harbor. The view of the harbor with the houses and buildings as a backdrop was just unforgetful. On the left, the biggest building with a triangular roof is the Arsenal which, was the oldest municipal theater built in 1612.
By night time, all houses including those studded up on the hills, were lit up and their reflections from the sea were just enchanting.
With the light sea breeze blowing and the street almost deserted, we had a pleasant walk in the main square toward the hotel, thinking how lucky we were to have another very enjoyable day.
No matter day or night, we have found Hvar to be very cosy, full of life and pleasant people; not a lot more you can ask from an island. . . . . . . . .
