We started with a workshop in amber art. First learned about the source of amber and how to distinguish from artificial once. We even tasted amber liquor (not a recommendation, from my side).
First level workshop is about to learn how to polish a piece of amber. We got a certificate for that! (Next step would be to learn how to drill a hole in it). Lithuanians still practice the shaman culture. Thus, we ended our workshop with a circle around the fire. For good wishes, the lady burned amber dust. THAT was amazing… thousands of little sparks above the fire!
Afterwards, we walked from to the Thomas Mann House (didn’t know he had a summer stay there… but he only could come here three time, thus…). What an amazing view of the lagoon! Can understand, he had creative times here. What great lines in the exposition! Good to remember.
A walk along the shore took us to shifting dunes, climbed up (with 30 degrees Celsius… Indians don’t cry), and had an impressive view! Loved the walk through the woods, beautiful nature, lovely shadow, and some soft wind. Just great!
In the afternoon, the beach at seaside was our destination. Again, a 15-minute walk through the woods. Life can be soooooo beautiful!
WHAT AN AMAZING BEACH! Soft sand, shallow water, but not to far deep enough for a good swim. A beach for everyone, a beach for just women, a beach for nature-lovers – all signed up. And despite there were quite some people it was quit, relaxing, no yelling or screaming. Never knew a beach like this. Only, within an hour, it became too hot to stay (we had no sunshade with us), thus we walked back to the hotel.
In a local restaurant, just around the corner, we had dinner with the group. Had some goof laugh and some good food.
Back in the hotel, finally, the cannabis beer from the first tour came out of the suitcases. Sharing, tasting, all a bit strange.
