Springtime in the western Danube Delta

Post by calinsuteu »

Dear All,
This spring I returned for a second time to a part of the Delta that you can only get to properly see when the waters are high (by properly see I am referring to a kayaking trip :D ). It was amazing as ever, the weather was all over the place but the scenery was great. I miss it already. We traveled the first day from Partizani to Tataru Lake, crossed over Radacinosu into Draghilea channel and made camp on the banks, in a garden with daffodils. Next day we explored Mester lake and Lungu Lake, often through flooded forests, only to return to the same garden for the night. Next day we pushed on towards Channel M35, saw the otherwise unreachable Marcova pond, forced a channel to Alb lake and then upstream on Arhipenco channel to Papadia Veche channel and then camped on an island nearby Ilganii de sus village. Next day we traveled by car to the lake shore at Jurilovca, to sleep on the ruins of the Greek citadel of Origame...

Will get back with three more photos.
All the best, Calin
