Marea Neagră îmbrățișează Dunărea – The Black Sea Embraces the Danube (Sfântu Gheorghe, România)

We move south on the Black Sea shore, from Sfântu
Gheorghe Beach to Danube (Sfântu Gheorghe Arm) After the sand strip you can see the Sfântu Gheorghe Arm,
and in the back, the northern end of the Sacalin Peninsula We are among the most morning tourists of this day On the sandy strip between the Sea and the Danube there
are a lot of birds (seagulls, sandwich tern, cormorants) that fly on our approach We are on the left (north) bank
of the Danube (Sfântu Gheorghe Arm) Opposite us is the Sacalin Peninsula (Nature Reserve) The mouth of the St. George’s Spill Arm in the Sea The strip of sand that separates the Danube from the Sea Black Sea beach extending north The wharf and the central area of ​​Sfântu
Gheorghe commune, about 2.5 km west In the spill area, the smallest width
of Sfantu Gheorghe Arm is about 400 m The Danube brought lots of stumps and other woody debris Over the water we see again the Sacalin Peninsula
(Reserve) and then thespill mouth to the Black Sea The “peninsular” area between St. George’s Arm
(left bank) and the Black Sea is called Buival Cape Between the Danube and the Sea Standing in the water of the sea,
we review in the opposite direction: the mouth of the Danube, the Sacalin Peninsula,
the Danube (Sf. Gheorghe Arm) and the Buival Cape A group of three girls runs from the Sea to the Danube The Buival Cape (between the Danube and the Black Sea) The Black Sea In the distance, over 1 km, is the beach
(central, main) of Sfântu Gheorghe The beach is about 2.2 km from the center of the commune
and tourists arrive here on foot or with the “trocarici” The mouth of the Danube (Sfântu Gheorghe Arm),
and on the opposite bank, the Sacalin Peninsula With a powerful zoom camera or binoculars,
we can see a lot of birds We see many cormorants (black birds), seagulls,
and the cinema stars are the pelicans A flight of cormorants that
train for the great migration We arrived again at the Buival Cape, but on
a day with strong wind and the rough sea Cape Buival area is one of the most dynamic
erosion processes in the Danube Delta A large submerged bank has been
developed near the Cape As it can be seen, the area of ​​interference between the
fresh waters of the Danube and the low salts of the Sea is also appreciated by birds that prefer the
narrow sand strip between the Danube and the Sea Also here, probably due to the larger waves of the Sea,
we see how the Sea flows into the Danube and not vice versa Due to the nutrient contribution brought by the Danube, the
flora in the area of ​​the Buival Cape is more diversified than
that of the rest of the marine beach in the St. George area Despite the agitated waters, cormorants and pelicans
on the other shore (Peninsula and Sacalin Reserve) seem to be feeling very good and have gone fishing For this opportunity of the waves,
the tourists also benefit: not every day you have the opportunity to be watered
on one foot by the waves of the Sea (from the left), and on the other foot by the waves
of the Danube (from the right) The waves of the sea and the Danube face on the sandy strip
