Yes, indeed, one of the joys of Croatia boating. I'll try to post some more Croatia pics tonight or tomorrow, and we might even have put enough pressure on mikef to post some :-)

A few years go I employed a mates teenage brother to scan a bagful on childhood pics. A few months later I had them all scanned on a dvd for a very reasonable cost. It wasn't optimal quality (though neither were the originals) but in this case the main thing was to get them in digital format for sharing and back up.
Maybe a relative could help with the tedious bit? If they were to be scanned as raw, it would leave a lot of room to play with if you want to tweak the best ones later.
I have never done 35mm scanning so I don't really know how demanding it is though...
Great pics, btw.
Thanks scubaman, I never considered such option, but it does make sense.
Actually, as I said, I've never been so keen on "modernising" memories.
There's a sort of nice time warp effect in looking at old pics with a slide projector rather than on a pc monitor or a TV.
Good point also re. the backup, though.
Let's see how long this winter will be....
Do you mean on these rocks such as the spot with the sunbrella's ?

This one here:
This is a picture on the same place in the other direction:
I’ve No relation with The family with the nice shirts
(I believe they are British tourists )
Or at night
About these walls, do you know that you can walk all around the old town ?
Look at the island in the previous photo, on the sea side of the old town,
It’s called lokrum, on the other side is a bay , this is a spot we like a lot near old town Dubrovnic
These pictures are taken from Lokrum, the pictures don’t do justice to the place, its really really nice,
And usually you can see a few super yachts from there, anchored in front of old town Dubrovnic.
this picture is taken in the direction towards Cavtat, Dubrovnic is behind us
The island is full of peacocks
And there is a small lake, picture is in post #1 from this thread.
There is a shuttle service to Lokrum many times a day (when you’re not there with your own boat)
Yup Bart, thats where one of the bars is. Great for chilling out after a hard day's loafing. There's another further around the wall. Yes you can walk the city wall; its actually quite a good walk so perfect for working up an appetite for dinner
One of my Croatian friends told me that for him,

Yes we like Cavtat too. It has a very Med feel about it. I'm not so sure about Primosten as its been very crowded with tourists whenever we've visited. We haven't been to Losinj yet either
