On my travels part 2. Kiel Canal and Warnemunde.
It took us about eight hours to cruise the canal. I didn't take many photos as it was mainly heavily wooded on both sides and it rained all day!
However it was an interesting experience and one we had on our 'to do' list. We've visited the Baltic twice but each time it was on a ship too large to go down the canal.
It was originally a fishing village and still has many of the charming fishermen's cottages. There are lovely squares and back streets to explore.
Warnemunde used to be in East Germany and was a popular holiday spot then. You can see why.
It's coast line is the Baltic and it has the most amazing, huge beach. The sand is dotted with thousands of the towns trade mark wicker basket sun lounges. They spread out in every direction. Along the long promenade, it was busy with stalls and fairground attractions. There was plenty to eat and drink if you needed it.
The Neptune hotel was pointed out to us, as of particular interest.
Apparently during the time of the 'Cold War' it was a popular meeting spot for spies and double agents and the like. How true that was I don't know, but its an interesting thought.
