Last day, Croatia

On the last day, we chilled.

Sunset, Croatia The sunset was particularly good on this day! Β Sunset, Croatia

Sunset, Croatia After the sun had dipped below the horizon, the sky became really bright again. It was really weird. Sunset, Croatia

After a while it gradually got darker again, but it was almost like the suns set twice.

Mountains at Sunset

On the second to last day we spent the evening driving around the mountain roads near our hotel. We got a good view of the sunset from a different vantage point, and saw a ruined house-thingy in a wall.

Sunset up the Mountains, Croatia Here you can see the smoke of the fires from further up in the mountain. It hadn’t rained in Croatia for a long time, so large parts had either been on fire, or were on fire. Sunset up the Mountains, Croatia

I’m currently regretting not posting these as I was there, because I fell like things have been lost in the two months since we came back….

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


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.

Sunset on the Moorlands

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.

Heather 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. Heather

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!
