THE ROAD TO CRES : Saving the Vultures of Croatia~Part Seven

Let’s take another break from all that eco/volunteery/birdy stuff…I mentioned in an earlier post how Cres reminded me very much of the Corfu of the 1930s’ which was the backdrop to Gerald Durrells’ childhood described in his Corfu Trilogy. This feeling was strongest when, instead of walking down to Beli’s main beach, we would leave the road and navigate our way through the olive trees, their roots always threatening to trip us up, down to a tiny, pebbled cove where we would swim. It felt so unspoiled that you could be anywhere at any time…mostly. Occasionally a boat would be moored there, or some rubbish would wash in with the tide. Once I had to climb over two figures in sleeping bags to get down onto the beach but for the most part it was peaceful. It is one of my favourite places in the world still…
