Arrival

Day 1
[news] 

A leisurely arrival time courtesy of Montenegro Airlines and a short taxi ride from Tivat airport brought us to Magrathea moored at the picturesque town of Kotor by 7 in the evening. Magrathea looked as immaculate as the first day we saw her - clearly plenty of elbow grease was around but fortunately none of it had dripped on the cushions. Canapés of filo baskets with seared duck breast and tomato chutney. Followed by a starter of beetroot cured salmon with a horseradish cream dressing. Then lamb with pea purée, wilted lettuce and mint foam with sautéed wild mushrooms. Dessert was an elegant and tasty white chocolate mousse with marinated strawberry salad. OMG why do we ever get off this boat? A late evening stroll around the cobbled streets of this old walled town helped to shift some of the earlier calories but sadly the stop off in one of the squares for large beers somewhat dissipated the effect.
