Then we reached island Pag and found a lovely, familiar camping site located next to the beach and lots of wild nature around. There were no shops or anything near, so it was never crowded. We explored every direction and I collected some pretty stones and sea glass.
The next stop we had in Starigrad-Paklenica. We stayed at a nice little camping site located in a cypress grove with lots of wild birds chattering and flying around all day. It was quite windy most of the time, but a warm, pleasant wind.
First we made a stop in Klenovica. There was a path next to the ocean where you could walk endlessly in the warmest evening light. I loved all the dry flowers and grasses there. The sea was calm and you could see island Krk in the distance.
This time we explored island Pag. It is very different to the other islands we have seen so far, but really beautiful! Little vegetation, some parts even look like places from another continent or some sort of moon landscape. Weather was crazy. First very hot, then heavy rains and hail. It felt like the end of the world. But it wasn't.
We had more snails than usual in our garden this year, so I had lots of opportunities to observe them. Their world is like a whole other universe. The Roman snail can live up to thirty years! But in the wild they usually don't reach that age.
