On a few things about our time in Montenegro(mostly about the beach club)

As by now it probably has been stated that we love Montenegro so I will try not to gush over it too much. Let me just start by saying that this is like the Ritz-Carlton of marinas. One of the best features in my opinion was the beach club. Now this was no ordinary pool/beach club oh no not at all. During our years cursing on Palarran we have went to a handful of beach clubs but none compare to this one. When you first walk in the lobby you are greeted by receptionist who then will walk you out to the pool area. They then leave you with the pool tenders who will basically assist you with any thing you need. They set you up with beach chairs and lay your towels out for you and then bring you water and a fruit tray that is included with the entire price. During the rest of your time there they will bring you any drinks you order, food and even a complimentary smoothie around midday.

On to the actual pool itself now. The pool was a huge tiled infinity pool overlooking the bay. The actual water the pool was so clean and pure that it was almost like bath water, there was no chlorine smell or anything. In the center there was a huge square arch with basically just made it look fancy, which I am okay with. Megan also told us that on Saturdays they put a floating walk way put down the middle and have people walking up and down it. I have to say that this was by the nicest pool I had been in so far.

Sailing Route

Aldarion was the Heir to the King of NĂºmenor. He was a great captain and adventurer, to the dismay of his father, who wished his son to spend his youth on the island he would one day rule. Aldarion, though, felt the call of the sea, and he built himself a vast ship, larger than any that had been seen at that time. He called it PALARRAN, an Elvish name meaning 'Far-Wanderer', and in it he journeyed the Great Sea to Middle-Earth. JRR Tolkien, The Silmarillion
