The Island at Sibenik in Yugoslavia in 1966

IMG_0009_NEW

Sibenik is about halfway up the Adriatic coast of former Yugoslavia (as it was in 1966). It has no beach in the port town itself and so one took a small boat out to the small offshore island which served as the town’s ‘beach’ – although it was not so much a beach (no sand) but a paved esplanade to the water’s edge and behind that a cool Mediterranean conifer hinterland. Tony Sargeant stayed there with Gill Parks for some weeks in the summer of 1966.
