Had such a great time on the Couronian Spit that we didn’t reach Palanga till after 5 pm. At that point, many attractions were closed, but the Baltic Sea is always open.
Made it to our spectacular hotel room near the beach [www.bellavila.lt - we had the double apt. Room for family].
That’s our balcony above the entryway. Was hoping for a gorgeous sunset, but it was slightly overcast.
Path to the sea from our hotel.
Sunset on the beach.
Also known as ‘vakarene’ in Lithuanian.
Still the sky had some pink in it.
My friend, Gintare, the landlord’s daughter, is now engaged and studying hotel management in Amsterdam.
Daniel wanted to have a nice dinner on the beach, but Gintare and I just laughed. I said we’d be lucky to find decent pizza. I recommended The Muse, and our hosts chimed agreement. We had a lovely dinner in a charming restaurant above an art gallery in the center of town. We sat at a table in a bay window overlooking the main street. After dinner, we headed back for beach trips, drinks, packing, and baths. Although the tub was lovely and deep, it was so clean, it was very slippery, and I almost couldn’t get out of it!
But the view of the forest from the window was like a fairy tale.
