Yesterday was our first day off. Having had sunshine and warm temperatures the days before we decided to drive to the Black Sea coast. Therefore we went to Vama Veche which is located in the Southwest, only 100 m from the Bulgarian border. Although the beach was crowded with people we spent several hours there, swimming, reading, eating pizza, and trying to scare away the far too many clouds.
Since we have also been trained in Quarternary geology we could not ignore a huge loess-paleosol – profile that has been exposed by the Black See and which caused additional excitement.
Have a look at the pictures to get an impression of how our day off was like:

Just to make sure, we did not spend more than 20 minutes investigating Quarternary climate sequences, but enjoyed our day at Vama Veche beach
