Zrmanja s kajakom – boj z vetrom in … spet kača :)

Kljub sončnemu vremenu je bil veter tisti, ki je krojil naše plane v kanjonu reke Zrmanje. In ker je bilo prvi dan praktično nemogoče veslati, smo se zjutraj najprej podali do Kudinega mostu na reki Krupi, v popoldanskih urah pa je bil plan osvojiti še res dober hrib nedaleč stran. No, tak je bil vsaj naš občutek ob gledanju na zemljevid. Po dobri uri vožnje po makadamski cesti čez območje, kjer smo lahko skozi okna le nemo opazovali požgane hiše in zapuščene vasi, pa se je cesta na določeni točki enostavno končala. Očitno je tudi cesta videla boljše čase. 🙁 Dan kasneje pa je bilo na vrsti naše kajakiranje. Lokalni kapitan čolna nam je modro svetoval, naj počakamo na popoldanske ure, ko se bodo udari burje počasi umirili. In res. Ob 14 uri je bilo v Obrovcu kot v pravljici in tudi vremenska napoved je bila obetavna. A po dobri uri veslanja se je vse skupaj obrnilo na glavo – veter je postajal močnejši in močnejši in na trenutke smo imeli občutek, da nam bo vesla enostavno odneslo iz rok. A ker smo imeli avtomobil parkiran v Maslenici in ker vse skupaj ni bilo nevarno, le ekstremno naporno, smo z avanturo enostavno nadaljevali. 🙂 Edini pravi postanek se je sprevrgel v pravo farso – tokrat sem bil jaz tisti, ki sem bos skoraj pohodil precej prestrašenega gada. 🙂 Celotna avantura se je končala na razburkanem morju, ob lepem sončnem zahodu, ki pa ni imel prave veljave. Edino, kar lahko rečem je, da je Zrmanja preveslana, za občudovati kanjon in naravo samo pa se bo treba še vrniti. 🙂

It was sunny, almost cloudless weather. But it was the wind that changed our itinerary in Zrmanja canyon. It was impossible to go kayaking on the first day and because of that we decided to go hiking. Early in the morning we went to Kudin bridge on river Krupa and after lunch we planned to go to a hill nearby – we thought so when we were looking at the map. But after an hour drive on the gravel road, when we just silently watched the burnt houses and abandoned villages around us, the road just ended. 🙂 Probably the road also has a story to tell. A day later it was time for our sea kayaking adventure. The local boat captain suggested us to start in the afternoon because of the wind. And it was much better after 2pm. But about an hour after our start it was getting really windy. But because we parked our car in Maslenica and because it was not dangerous, but just very exhausting, we decided to continue our adventure. 🙂  The only real stop turned in a strange way when I almost barefoot stepped on a viper, that was as surprised as I was. The adventure ended in heavy seas, with beautiful sunset. But we were just too tired to admire it. The only thing I can say at the end is that we paddled the Zrmanja canyon. But to really feel it we have to return. 🙂
