Romania: Summer Vacation 2022 - Day 10: Exploring Costinești

Our main destination for this year's summer vacation was Romania. After the morning walk with Bronco and a breakfast I left Nada and Bronco behind and started exploring Costinești through geocaching.

Previous days of our Summer Vacation 2022: Day 9 - 15786, Day 8 - 15785, Day 7 - 15784, Day 6 - 15783, Day 5 - 15782, Day 4 - 15781, Day 3 - 15780, Day 2 - 15779, Day 1 - 15778.

Morning near our hotel.

Romania has a coastline length od 225 km.

Near the city Costinești, the beaches were getting crowded.

MV E Evangelia, a shipwreck from 1968.

On 15 October 1968 E Evangelia was sailing in ballast from Rijeka in Yugoslavia to Constanța in Romania when she ran aground in the Black Sea off Costinești about 16 nautical miles (30 km) south of Constanța.

Around noon, the beaches in the city were totally full.

In the 1960s, Costinești evolved from a small fishing village to a summer destination, most popular with young people and students.

Chillin' back in the hotel.

Searching for gold.
