Dziwnow Poland 2023 - Part 1

For international Women's Day last year we decided to head up to the Polish coast again - this time to Dziwnow. Since the holiday was on a Wed we headed up Tues night, Raymond worked from there Thurs and Fri and we had the weekend to explore. This was taken at night when we got into our place where we were staying. 

Again right on the beach with views of the water from the living room!

I loved it!

First day it was off to explore

It was so cold the sand was frozen in places

All the frozen sand! I had never seen that before so that was fun

So cold I had to put my mask on to keep my face warm!

We made it to "town"

We had lunch here - this was an inlet to a pretty big water area/lakes that go down to Szcezcin. 

This sign says something like only beets throw garbage into the forest - don't be a beet! Which I found pretty funny. Don't be a beet!

Town is really small, but there is this one walkway that has a ton of these with the names of famous Polish athletes which was fun to wander through

This was the square of friendship, with items representing each city, between Dziwnow, Gorzow Wielkopolski (cinder motorcycle which is popular there), Werneuchen (tree from their coat of arms and forest location), and Sosnowiec (mining cars for the coal from the city)

This was a memorial to the wounded Greek people in the Greek Civil War in 1949 who covertly were smuggled into Poland to receive care

Sunset from out place!

The next day Raymond was working so I had some crocheting to do, but also took a small wander down the beach the other way

And walked back through the forest which was really nice

So nice being able to relax and enjoy the views, or take a wander down the beach! I love it on the coast!

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
