What a difference a day makes
We had the storm, yesteday it was too hot for us and today we have put the heating on because its 15° and raining. To be fair, its been a cool day, but only started raining about 6.30pm.
We made a circular tour------from Potrity---Dobre Miasto----Alidzbark Warminski----Bartoszyce----Almost into Russia at the Bagrationowsk crossing Road No 51. Back to Bartoszyce and onto the No 57 road back to Jezlorany/Potrity base camp.
When you see my photo´s it appears to be quite flat, not so, today the sceenery was just like the Black forest for quite a lot of the time. The photo shows where we stopped for lunch, a big forest layby, we parked right away from the road. It would have been a fantastic place to stop the night, would have probably seen some wild life, foxes, maybe even hear wolves who knows.
The second picture is the crossing into Russia, we bypassed all that traffic on the right and turned back, I pulled over on the side of the road to take the photo and a Police lady told us we couldn´t stop there, I indicated just 1 minute and she said OK only a minute.
If you like the natural world this is the area to come to, my guide tells me we are heading towards wilder places to the Puszcza Borecka region.
We are surprised how tidy the main roads are kept, all the wide grass verges are cut short. BUT what is so annoying are the mile upon mile of brand new cycle paths, ( we have never seen anyone on them), leaving the roads either full of pot holes or dirt roads.
We learn something new every day.
