01.08.2017 – BREAKFAST AT THE BEACH AND EMIGRATION MUSEUM

.

IN THE MORNING WE QUICKLY RAN TO SKM, BECAUSE WE HAD AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE FAMILY FOR BREAKFAST AT THE GRAND HOTEL BEACH.

WE SAT DOWN TO HAVE A SEA VIEW. THERE WERE ALMOST NO PEOPLE. ACTIVE AT THIS HOUR RESTO-BARS OFFERED RICH BREAKFAST SETS. THE SUN WAS JUST BREAKING THROUGH THE CLOUDS, BUT STILL, THE LANDSCAPE SEEN FROM UNDER THE UMBRELLA WAS WORTH SO EARLY GETTING UP IN THE MORNING. WE SAT EATING, CHATTING, LOOKING AT THE SEA.

AFTER ABOUT TWO HOURS HOLIDAY-MAKERS STARTED FILLING THE BEACH. BECAME HOT. THE TIME FOR LUNCH HAS COME.

IN THE END, WE DECIDED TO SET OFF TO GDYNIA. WE WANTED TO SEE THE EMIGRATION MUSEUM. NO ONE WAS WILLING TO ACCOMPANY US.

USING SKM WE GOT TO THE GDYNIA-STOCZNIA RAILWAY STATION. THEN – ON FOOT, PERHAPS 2 KILOMETRES TOWARDS THE PORT BY COMPLETELY BORING ROAD.

THE MUSEUM BUILDING IS A FORMER MARINE STATION. NEXT TO IT IS THE HARBOR MASTER’S OFFICE. QUIETLY. CALMLY. BESIDE THERE IS A FINAL STOP OF THE BUS FROM/TO THE CITY CENTRE.

VERY INTERESTING MUSEUM. THE EXPOSITION ABOUT THE REASONS OF EMIGRATION OF THE PERIOD BEFORE THE I WW IS ESPECIALLY CATCHING THE ATTENTION. FASCINATING ARE FATES OF EMIGRANT FAMILIES. CAUSES OF EMIGRATION, THE WAY THEY WENT, PHOTOS, LETTERS. VERY CURIOUS DESCRIPTIONS. MAYBE THE LAST PERIOD IN WHICH EMIGRATION TOOK PLACE IS THE LEAST INTERESTING, BUT IT DOES NOT CHANGE MY VIEW OF THE ENTIRE EXHIBITION. ON THE OTHER HAND, HUMAN EMIGRATION CONTINUES. DIFFERENT ARE PERHAPS ITS CAUSES, BUT AS A CULTURAL AND SOCIAL PHENOMENON, IT IS STILL VALID.

WE RETURNED TO SOPOT BECAUSE IN GDYNIA WE DID NOT KNOW WHERE TO EAT WELL. FROM OUR FORMER TRI-CITY STAY MOST POORLY WE KNOW THIS CITY.

FROM THE SKM STATION IN SOPOT, WE CAME TO THE ALEJE WOJSKA POLSKIEGO, RUNNING RIGHT BY THE BEACH. THERE IS A LOT OF TEMPTATION FOR A MAN HERE. HERE ONE CAN FIND FISH, SHASHLIK, SAUSAGE. A BIT FURTHER – ICE CREAM, WAFFLES, DESSERTS. FRYING FISH PRICES STARTING FROM PLN 7.50 TO PLN 11.50 FOR 100 gr.

SOPOT – WE FOUND ANOTHER FISH AND CHIPS SHOP !!!

.
IN ONE OF THE ENTRIES TO THE BEACH, WE NOTICED THE MARINEROS FISH AND CHIPS SHOP. WE ORDERED COD WITH SALAD. WE PAID MORE THAN YESTERDAY, BUT ALSO PORTIONS OF FISH WERE BIGGER. WITH DRINKS PLN 120.

STUFFED WE REACHED ORLOWO, WHERE WE SPENT HALF A NIGHT IN THE GARDEN, CHATTING ABOUT EVERYTHING WITH THE COOL SISTERS WE STAYED IN.
