Finally: the dunes. Wydmy, w końcu.

That day we walked around 15km together.The longest way was to the dunes. It was a pleasand walk in the forest shadow with light wind.

But the dunes welcomed us with hot, muggy and very sunny weather.

As the dunes are volatile the sand moves back and forth. Wherever they move they overwhelm every plant, tree, lakes leaving dry stumps.

But if only the dunes move away just a bit, plants are ready to take over and get back the land that belonged to them before.

You can see these waves of wandering sand on this picture(and me too.LOL)

The highest dune is 42m high and it's named Góra Łęcka - Łęcka Mountain. You can walk down this mountain to the beach.

I remember once someone said it's not worth to go to The Sahara Desert when we have almost the same sea of sand over here.:)
Being here and there I can say both places are worth visiting.

The last picture of our trip was taken in Baltica Marina Yacht Club. Pretty place facing the marina, close to the beach and the centre of Łeba,good food. But I loved most the chandelier of wine bottles.;)

Thank you all for being so kind and watching my trip. Hope you liked the photos and they made you thinking of visiting my beautiful country one day.:)

Ostatni wpis z wycieczki. Ogółem tego dnia przeszłyśmy około 15km. W większości szło nam się dobrze, bo w cieniu i z lekkim wiaterkiem. Najgorsza była gwałtowna zmiana pogody gdy doszłyśmy do wydm. Nieznośny upał i kompletny brak wiatru. Ponieważ wydmy są lotne, to widać jakie spustoszenie sieją gdy dotrą na teren zamieszkały przez rośliny, ale widać też jak silne są te ostatnie, bo gdy wydmy choć trochę się cofną na ich miejsce, a czasem i na nich jeszcze wyrastają trawy.
Najwyższą wydmą jest Góra Łęcka mierząca sobie 42mnpm. Można z niej zejść na plażę równie piaszczystą jak same wydmy.Ostatnie zdjęcie zrobione jest w Klubie Jachtowym Baltica Marina, pięknie położony, blisko wszędzie, z widokiem na marinę i dobrym jedzeniem. Mnie jednak najbardziej podobał się "żyrandol" z butelek po winie.:)Mam nadzieję, że relacja z podróży po naszym pięknym kraju się Wam podobała.

That stunning lamp would have caught my attention, too... ;O) Wonderful pictures of the dunes, I've once seen a TV documentation about it and remember I was left openmouthed...

Beautiful pictures, Ewa! And a Fascinating place! It looks a bit like the outer end of Cape Cod here on our east coast... the beaches change every year depending on what the storms do with the sand!
It looks like you had a wonderful time!
Thank you for sharing!

Sans! said...

I was just thinking how easy it is to make miniature Dunes and then I saw the bottle chandelier! Easy to make too! Woohoo! :)

Ewalina, you and I must make arrangements to meet Birgit one day eh? :)

Sans! said...

O yes, who's hand is that? love her bracelets!

The Old Maid said...

The chandelier is easy, not sure about the dunes but sure you know how! LOL.
Yesssss I am thinking of it. Need to ask Brigit first if there is a mini fair somewhere close to her place.;)

The Old Maid said...

Of course I know! I was wearing bracelets but not as many as Sans does before she visited me. Guess she made me braver to wear more of them, lol!
