Croatia (Day 3)

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.

Croatia

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….

Croatian Sunrise

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.

Croatia

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!

Bamford Edge

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!

Bamford Edge

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.

Waterfalls

Mallyan SpoutThere aren’t many waterfalls in the North York Moors, but I was determined to find the ones that there were. It turns out that they are quite close to each other, but it also turned out that despite the fact it has been raining, they weren’t exactly in full flow. Falling Foss

 

Getting to the bottom of the Falling Foss was a bit more difficult that I had imagined though, as (due to the rain) we ended up scrabbling down a muddy bank. There wasn’t a path to follow so once we had got down the bank we followed the river back up to the fall. The route back was the same, but we ended up rather muddy after the trip!

Despondent

I’ve been off the boil with my photography of late. As a kind of excuse the weather has been really hot and sunny, meaning that the only ideal times to shoot are sunset and sunrise, and when you work full time there’s not much of me that can be bothered to operate at those times as I’m in bed!

Anywhoo, got out with the camera today. kB’s parents have moved house so the old house is empty.
