  It's Too Hot, So Here Are Some Beach Photos

The title pretty much says it; summer is doing a guest visit, and as usual, really shows off. 30°C is not my favourite temperature, nor do I like the increasingly high humidity.

The Baltic coast at the Curonian Spit

It was hot, too, when we visited the Curonian Spit, but water on both sides made it bearable. The beaches facing the Baltic Sea are lovely, and only so full of people as in the photos when a tourist group arrives, or during high summer. The beaches at the German coasts are a lot more crowded in summer. Though I still have happy childhood memories of our holidays there.

Another beach shot

Too bad there wasn't enough time to take a swim. Sure, the water was still cold in May, but if I want a warm bath, I can fill up my tub. *grin* Right now I may fill said tub with cold water, though.

A different angle

And as usual, when the weather is too hot ro work, there's a lot of extra work to do. Why didn't that happen last week when it rained more than anything else? Well, at least I'm not the only one being behind updating her blog. ;)

Evening at the beach

When we sailed along the coast of the Curonian Spit in the evening, a light fog came up that made for a melancholy atmosphere. The changing moods are one of the things I love about the sea.

Sunset at the Lithuanian coast

And then the clouds decided to add some nice effects to the sunset that night (it still happened later than in Germany though there was some actual night, other than in St.Petersburg).

Now I hope the heat and the work will lessen next week. :)
 
Comments:
It's sweltering here as well. The sea looks really inviting!
 
LOVE the pic of the sunset! We had really hot humid weather last week too, though it's cooler now. :)
 
Nobody swims off that beach?
 
Stag, at a temperature of 10-12°C the water may not have been that inviting. :)
 
Gorgeous sunset! Hope the weather gets cooler for you.
 
Looks even more inviting now than it did a few days ago, as it's well over 30 degrees here today. ;-)
 
Kathryn, it really does. We got 35°C today, that's not summer, that's purgatory. ;)

The Lost Fort is a blog based on my travels in Germany, the UK and other places, with essays on Roman and Mediaeval history illustrated with lots of photos of old castles, cathedrals, Roman remains, and beautiful landscapes. You may also find the odd essay about geology or Mediaeval literature.

I'm a blogger from Germany with a MA in Literature and History which doesn't pay my bills, so I use it to research blogposts instead. I'm interested in everything Roman and Mediaeval, avid reader and sometimes writer, opera enthusiast, traveller with a liking for foreign languages and odd rocks, photographer, and tea aficionado. And an old-fashioned blogger who hasn't yet gotten an Instagram account. :-)
