Warnemünde, its harbour, the beach and sand sculptures

During our cruise, we are going to give you a first impression of every place we visit. The coming weeks we will go deeper into each region, it is just not possible to publish a lot because we have an extremely busy schedule and the internet on board is very slow and expensive. Our family is house sitting and taking care of the dogs because they were not allowed on board.

On the first picture, you see our ship next to a very big sail boat in the harbour of Warnemünde. It was rather cloudy but we didn’t have rain, good enough to enjoy the beach and town. It was the first time we visited a German beach location and the chairs on the beach were very special, like going back in history. Between the harbour and the beach there was a sand sculpture festival. Aren’t these great artists who make this just out of sand?

Gedurende onze cruise gaan we u enkele indrukken geven van alle plaatsen die we bezoeken. De weken daarna gaan we meer publiceren over iedere regio. Op dit moment is het gewoon niet mogelijk meer te publiceren vanwege het drukke schema en het trage en dure internet aan boord. Onze familie let op het huis en de hondjes want deze werden niet toegelaten aan boord. 

Op de eerste foto zie je ons schip naast een grote driemaster in de haven van Warnemünde. Het was zwaar bewolkt maar we kregen geen regen, goed genoeg om even van het strand en de stad genieten. Het was de eerste keer dat we een Duitse badplaats bezochten en de stoeltjes op het strand waren speciaal, het was net alsof we terug gingen naar het verleden. Tussen de haven en het strand was er een zandsculpturen tentoonstelling. Wat een grote kunstenaars die dit kunnen maken uit zandkorreltjes..

  1. Yes Filip, you are correct - these chairs are like going back in time! The sand sculptures are incredible - on the photo they look like made of stone. You both seem to be very happy on your trip! Christa

  2. Your fotos are wonderful ... insanely fabulous. Thanks for sharing.

    I've never seen chairs like that than just in the old movies. I love that picture with beach chairs front the sea.
    Amazing sand art!
    Have a nice trip both of you.

  5. the beach chair called "Strandkörbe" are very typical for the German coast...I love them, one can have them in different colours and they make the beach happier:-) dont you think so?
    @Daniel Chiam: the wooden boxes are helping people enjoying the sun on the beach but while being protected from the wind, very cool, no? One may turn them in any direction;

  6. Sand sculptures always amaze me and these are beauties. Its interesting how different peoples enjoy their beaches. By the clothing I'd say it was pretty cool on the beach and those chairs probably provide some shelter.

  13. There is real talent for building such intricate sand sculptures and knowing they are only temporary. I like those beach chairs and the sand is really deep.

  14. Love those chairs, and the sand sculptings are amazing! Seems as if they would be so transient.
