When we went to Gdansk a few weeks ago, it was the hottest day of the summer in Poland. Gran and Pop were visiting from South Florida. They said ‘”It’s not so hot,” but we all struggled a bit. After some ice cream — which started pooling on the ground as I handed it to her — Miss H was just about done with the heat. After all, this was a first really hot day since maybe a year before.
If you don’t know, Gdansk is on the Baltic Sea and is Poland’s primary port town. It makes up the tri-city area with Sopot and Gydnia, which all really start jumping during the short summer. It is the Gdansk shipyard where the Solidarity movement started in 1980 with Lech Wałęsa that put an end to Communism in Poland.
So anyway, back to the heat. With Miss H and her father starting to struggle with the heat like the good northerners they are, I did like all good moms do. I handed Miss H my iPhone. I didn’t have anything to give Mr. F but promises of a quick walk.
Since we were walking, there were no videos or apps to play. I asked her instead to take pictures. Here they are.
She selected all her own shots. I didn’t alter any of them except to crop out Mr. F on the first one (since he doesn’t like his photo shared).
I love her perspective on the ice cream cone. Don’t you?
I am looking forward to our next trip with our budding photographer.
