Slept like logs on bolders last night- nice here is the relative absence of nuisance insects due to the lack of moisture I assume. Our wet clothes all dried overnight in this low humidity environment.
We had a slightly delayed start as the ever helpful Red Adventures guys managed to reunite me with my wallet that I had left in the van by mistake. We launched at about 9.15 – a little richer
Beautiful warm conditions again – balmy calm and hot sun beating down. We are both having to make an adjustment from not paddling for a while – ie no training for this trip. It will take a few days and we will feel stronger.
Had an early lunch break at a town on little Brevnik then pushed on with a strengthening breeze pushing us round the coast,one of big Breknik. We are setting up camp on a tiny islet off the end of Big Drvenik
very difficult landing here – Croatia is not blessed with an abundance of beaches so one needs to manage as best one can – this time a struggle over rocks – but a great shady campsite.
the gps gave us 16 .4 Kms a bit less than the 20 or so for yesterday
Red Adventures have some cool kit for hire. Here we have to new Prijon quality sea kayaks – barb has the 5 meter touryak and I have a 5.2 meter seayak. From the very first paddle it is apparent that these are comfortable paddling boats with no bad habits. I like them even if they are heavy compared to our Kevlar glass boats at home.
Great campsite tonight – but the place is rather overloaded with flotsam and jetsam and stuff dumped by uncaring locals. We are carrying all our rubbish out and dumping at the nearest towns – wish locals had the same attitude.
