Pomeranian Progress

 

This holiday has been a wonderful voyage of discovery. A few impressions stay with me: of rustic farmyards, of swaying fields of barley scattered with indigo cornflowers, of scarlet poppies and tall, tall trees.

There is so much to do in Leba and the surrounding area. Leba itself is in many ways unashamedly touristy, filled with restaurants and stalls. There are still signs of the old ways of life, also of industry, especially surrounding the docks, which appear to be undergoing a transformation.

The hotel itself, as shown in other posts, has been a haven of friendliness and wonderful food. As well as catering to our every need, Mieszko and his family treated us to a kayaking trip along a beautiful river in a nature reserve and across a lagoon. I will never forget the wonderful iridescence of the dragon flies reflected in the clear water as we glided unseen through the reed beds.

And so, as usual, I will share a few photographs, wonderful memories from an unforgettable holiday.
