On the fifth day, we got off our lazy bottoms and went somewhere! It was an early start, as Krka was 2 hours away, and for some reason the people we booked the trip with felt it was necessary to stop off at another town for an hour.
Krka wasn’t too busy, but it was pretty dry, and I feel like it didn’t look as epic as it could have.
It was still pretty though, just not quite as good as I was expecting.
Another lazy day on day 4, more swimming in the sea, more cocktails… However I got up for sunrise (again) but this time went into the mountain first, then came back down to the beach.
The third day in Croatia I’m not sure that we did a lot. Drank some cocktails, swan in the sea….
The sunsets were spot on though, fantastic view from the hotel and thus the beach.
I’m really behind on posting it would seem!
I stopped in Croatia for more than one day. Croatia was really hot for the entire week we were there. On the second day I got up at sunrise and went for an explore down by the beach. It turned out that the best photos of the landscape were near the nudist beach….
Because our hotel was in front of a large mountain, the sunrise wasn’t quite as epic as it could have been, but the early morning hazy colours were still beautiful.
At the ripe old age of 31 I have never stopped awake for 24 hours before. I almost made it on the day we went on holiday, but I had squeezed in a 20 minute nap in the evening, so I’m not sure that it counted.
We had a rubbish flight time, which meant we had to be at the airport for 4am. When we got to Croatia, they have a rule that you can’t check in until 3pm. We had packed some swim stuff but we were too tired to do anything really.
Cracking views of the sunset from the balcony though!
I’ve never been to Bamford Edge before, but it overlooks Ladybower and I’ve been around that area a few times before.
There is a small patch for cars near the top of the road, cross over a turnstyle and start the walk!
It’s not a far walk, but the first stretch of it is quite steep. Once you are up on the top though, it’s flat and the path is clear.
We got there just in time for sunset, and by the time we had walked back to the car it was just about dark.
The weather promised me that it the clouds would go for the sunset, but an hour before the sun would dip below the horizon line, it was still pretty cloudy.
I decided it was worth the risk, and the trip out, so I put some clothes back on (I’d had a shower and gotten straight into my jim jams from the Abbey walk earlier in the day) and off we went up the hill out of the valley to the car park at the top.
How patiently I waited when we got to the car park at the top! I wandered around trying to find a good patch of heather, set up shop and waited. The longer I waited the more the clouds parted.
Every day there has been a rainbow at around the same time (just before sunset) in the same place. How bizarre!
