I found that very interesting. Then back and after a lunch at a nearby Beach Resort something to hang on the beach back. From my point of view a great trip. Baden was not möglch in the sea or on the versprochenden pool at the resort. The sea was cold and the beach really dirty, also the pool and the Strananlage rather not renovated me remembered on a relic from the GDR and seemingly since the 70s. But I could do there-great photos and sit in the Sun and just enjoy it.
