There were plants and birds and rocks and things


Slovenia has a very short 40 kms stretch of coast line: From Piran you can see Croatia to the east and Italy to the west. We pottered down here for some sunshine, after a couple of days of heavy thunderstorms. Piran is a pretty, Italian-looking town which made its money from salt.

It is now the holiday season and the large campsite is busy. Round the headland from the campsite are old saltpans and we walked there in the evening. The setting sun over the Adriatic Sea gave us spectacular streaks of orange and crimson across the sky, reflected in the water. Around the edges of the saltpans were an array of flowers; the Sea Lavender providing lots of colour. Flocks of Egrets flew over-head and as it grew darker, bats swooped below them. We giggled watching a silver fish twist high out of the water and seem to belly-flop back in. All this 10 minutes away from a 500 pitch campsite.

Those of you who know him will not be surprised that Anthony suggested ‘Egrets, I have a few’ as the title for this blog!

  2. Hey fellow campers!

    Have you got a photo of the sun set and the flowers around the salt pans? Shame we couldn't join you, but thanks to you we can imagine it as you describe it so very vividly. Sounds lovely and gives us great ideas for when we go next on our travels. You never know, perhaps one day 'We meet again, don't know where, don't no when...'.

  3. We were very silly and didn't take the camera for our evening stroll to the salt pans and it was gorgeous.

    Absolutely, you never know when we might meet again. Good to hear from you and hope you're still travelling around.

    Good wishes
    Carol and Anthony
