i always thought of the baltic sea as a giant bath tub and so i was told in my childhood. so no waves. i actually have never been to the beaches of the baltic sea until a recent visit to poland. what i saw there was quite far away from taking a relaxing bath. but then again if you put a giant ventilator above the tub you would get close to the state of the the sea i saw.
those were all taken on a recent trip to the polish city of kołobrzeg. i had a nice grilled trout there, too.
