Holiday Week Mali Losinj 27. March to 3. April 2010

A second time we are on holiday with the tennis club Winzendorf-Muthmannsdorf during the "Holy Week" on a tennis camp in Mali Losinj, this time in the Hotel Aurora, to which we were changed on "technical reasons". Since I still do not play tennis, I have my own mountain bike with me, making it much easier to journ around. The weather being bright, I am out nearly every day.

On the drive, early after leaving the highway, a stunning view down to the cove of Rijeka.

Way down to the sea.

We have changed to the isle of Krk via a huge bridge. Shortly after the bridge, a fine view over the sea to the city of Rijeka.

At the ferry near Valbiska. We have now time for more than an hour, so I go for a short walk.

Now, what am I finding? A star anemone (Anemone hortensis)

The boat is approaching ...

 ... and berthing.

Now journing over the sea to the isle of Cres.

View to the north; Cres to the left, Krk to the right, in the background is Istria.

View back to Krk and the two villages of Amar and Skrbcici ...

 ... with the still snow covered mountains of Croatia (and Slowenia) behind.

Heading for Cres.

Arrived at the Aurora hotel, we have a short stroll down to the shore in the evening.
