Photographer's Note

Dobrota, Kotor, Montenegro.

To be honest, Dobrota is little more than a seaside suburb of Kotor, but of course it has its own charm. It sits on the shores of Boka Kotorska (the Bay of Kotor), which is strictly speaking a ria, or drowned river valley: Dobrota is thus some twenty miles from the open sea. It is mostly a quiet place, though it has some famed restaurants, though no beaches for those interested in such things. Instead the waterfront is a series of tiny harbours and landing stages, as seen in the photograph. The mountain beyond is called the Orjen massif, notorious for the Bora winds that can blow up abruptly in Winter. But this was early Autumn, and Montenegro's other wind, the "Jugo" was having its effect. Jugo is a warm humid wind and is important as it brings heavy rain. It duly did!
