>Soviet Mini Golf, Waffles and Amber

>I have been to Gdynia, Poland a few times. But I never noticed that it was a beach town.

The shuttle bus from the ship dropped us off near the beach.

First off, I hit the bank machine, and withdrew the second smallest amount of money possible.

I have no idea what it’s worth.

With 100 Zlotis burning a hole in my pocket, I wondered what I could buy with it. I checked out a menu. I think I might have enough.

It was really early in the day, and I went with my friend Jim to play Soviet Mini-golf. It was a horrible impossible course, and I was a victim of mini-golf rage yet again. You could hear me grumbling about the lack of windmills and waterfalls.

There was a small parade through the town. Buccaneer’s day already? I thought.
No, they were advertising a toffee candy. And they didn’t even give me a sample!

Behind the parade was some kind of war museum. It had some strange aircraft.

Um.. where did I park my submersible?

Time for an ice cream…

This strange hut was selling sheep’s cheese, barbecued.

We hit the town center

At a coffee shop was a meringue cake garnished with prunes

An English book store had some interesting stuff.

A grocery store selling milk with a very good name…

Yes, I did have an ice cream..

And a waffle, I needed something to wash down the bbq sheep’s cheese.

On the pier they were selling amber, and I bought a giant ring.
