We started our day with bacon, eggs, and hiking. From our campsite a small trail led us to the salt pans of Sečovlje. We hiked through the hills of the peninsula and passed by a few local olive farmers who happily gave us directions when we lost the path. Surprisingly, compared to Germany all of the Slovenians we’ve met have been very outgoing, and spoken a lot of English. All the olive farmers were burning their branches, something we’ve actually heard about from our first day here, but we still can’t figure out why they do it.
In front of the salt pans were boats waiting for their owners who have never returned.
This boat might be waiting for high tide??
Go home boat, you’re drunk!
After our hike we drove to our next stop – oops! But before that we enjoyed hanging out in the hills in our orange van with a fantastic view out over the bay.
We enjoyed the sunset at our farmer’s campsite in Osp with a bottle of wine we bought on our way. We visited the owner of the winery “Santomas,” and his wife showed us his fine art gallery!
