As the sun poured down on Dubrovnik today after a spell of grey and overcast weather some people were tempted to dive in the Adriatic Sea and determined to make the most of a sunny start to the week.
With sea temperatures around 20 degrees in fact the sea isn’t that chilly, indeed the sea in Dubrovnik today was twice as warm as the air temperature in the capital. This brave swimmer in the Bay of Lapad today certainly had the sea to himself. No worries about finding a spare spot on the beach to roll out his towel or whether a jet-ski would whizz past his ear, he crawled, a front crawl that is, to his heart’s content.

However, the forecast for the rest of the week doesn’t look so promising for our swimmer, he might want to pack away the speedos, as rain and storms are predicted. But on the 11th day of the 11th month at exactly 11:00 am he splashed away even though Christmas is just around the corner.
