We left Gdansk and followed the coast west heading towards the German border.  The weather was exceptional for late October and the bright trees around us were resplendent with golden colours, their leaves undisturbed in the quiet autumn air.  

Pierogi (dumplings) these had bacon and vegetable filling

We stopped for lunch at a small roadside restaurant and, for less than £10 each, we had excellent home made soup with bread followed by pierogi and salad – and a beer.

Blue Dot was Szczecin

Our final stop in Poland was a marina at Szczecin (pronounced something like Sshh-ch-shin but, try as I might, I failed miserably to reproduce the correct Polish pronunciation).

A morning mist made photography a problem

There were a lot of people around on that sunny Saturday.  The sailing club was busy with families with their sailing dinghies as well as a dozen or so vans staying on the site so we were disappointed that the site café / restaurant was closed for the season, nor were there any shops or cafés within walking distance – so we had to fall back on self catering mode.
