The Black Sea pics

We got to the Black Sea coast of Romania a little later than planned after the mobile-phone-left-in-hotel incident. So we didn’t get to see the sea till the next morning. The beach at Constanta was a bit grubby but very peaceful.

My feet were a bit camera shy but Anita’s toes went looking for the limelight…

Then it was straight off to Varna in Bulgaria, though not without the shock of finding none of the ‘scheduled’ buses left after 10am, so we had to get a ride from a rogue taxi driver. Once in Varna, the change of script makes it feel further east.

And the churches too

The Romans came here though…

And this is the modern version of the baths. Sadly we couldn’t get in because there was a kiddies’ carnival on that afternoon. But fabulous on the shores of the Black Sea.

But our visit to Varna was also short-lived. A quick coffee chatting to an English couple, who have doggie connections to Beverley in East Yorkshire, and then onto the bus for Istanbul…
