Autocamp Marina- Sibenik

Thursday 8th June

A last early morning look across the bay, from our site at Split.  We had spent 9 nights here and the weather was wonderful, great in the sunshine and cool in the shade!

We had a great pitch, and the facilities were spotlessly clean, and the WI-FI  wasn’t too bad as well, always a bonus for us avid bloggers.

All in all a great break from the arduous travelling we have been doing. Now back on the road again!

Mind you it wasn’t a particularly long drive, just an hour up the motorway to Autocamp Marina. K&V, who had left a good couple hours before us, were only just setting up camp when we arrived. Kev asked me what I thought of the spectacular drive, I replied, “just like most motorways, but with the occasional good view.”  They had taken the coast road, it had taken them twice as long, but both said it was one of the loveliest drives they had ever done!………. I need to pay more attention to the maps and not the SAT-NAV. We did travel this road on another day but more of that later.

After the disappointment of the drive we set out for a scenic walk, and the campsite manager recommended a newly refurbished path on the coast that started at St. Nicholas Fortress, near the town of Sibenik.

The walk followed the edge of the estuary that leads to the port of Sibenik.

The climbs to the viewpoints were well worth the effort.

Although I look slightly red faced with the effort, I can assure you it is a sun tan !

After all that hard work, and with a trip to Lidl on the cards, I suggested that maybe after that we could have a stroll around the old town

To admire the lovely old buildings and all the narrow streets and steps and passageways….and maybe a pizza……

    Another lovely place, you definitely picked a great area to tour.

    It’s been a heatwave here, 31 degrees every day for a week! Hence my just trying to catch up with your blog, been busy out in the garden. Just starting to cool off today, and maybe some “welcome” rain over the weekend, the grass is getting parched.
