Oct 11, 2014

Breakfast.   Departure to National Park Plitvice lakes - about 2,5 hours ride. Upon arrival accommodation in pansion Winnetou. Day at leisure for sightseeing of the most beautiful Croatian National park. 


We had been told how amazing this National Park would be.  It lives up to it's reputation and a definite stop if you are in Croatia.   Rick Steves says it better than I ever could!  
"There’s nothing like this lush valley of 16 terraced lakes, laced together 
by waterfalls and miles of pleasant plank walks."

 It was cool with rain off and on throughout the day.  We did not go with a group so we could walk at our pace and take in the beauty of the fall colors.  

Our Hotel Winnetou

This was a strange find in Croatia, it had been built by Americans and was full of Indian artifacts. Not the cosy 1500's most of our hotels were.  


The start of our day at the park.  So glad we had our umbrellas











And the day got longer, cooler and darker...Bob even changed coats with me because his was warmer.  We knew the last bus back to the cars was at 6 pm...at 6:30 we finally found a parking lot that was for employes...so tankful to find a way out.
I guess our wandering got a bit out of hand. 
we never did figure out where we took a wrong turn.


Yes I really was that tired and afraid we would be spending the night on a park bench.
