As others have mentioned before, the title of this forum is Trip Reports - so here goes.

Although one can't really get bored with the the Hoek v Holland, Europoort, Antwerp, Vlissingen, north Germany etc etc, it is nice to go somewhere else occasionally. So following a few very good days at Travemunde (ferries and Lubeck traffic) and Warnemunde (ferries and Rostock traffic), a short drive further east takes you to Swinoujscie, Poland  (before WW2 Swinemunde). What a great place for watching and photographing ships. Everything going into the port passes through the narrow Baltic sea entrance channel, and vessels going on to the inland port of Szczecin (former Stettin) then travel down another canal before transiting across the inland sea to their final destination.
You can get as close as you like - 50-100mm lens is adequate. Fantastic scenery, lovely people, cheap beer and lots of ships. Certainly a place to try for a change. Highly recommended.
Seen: Unity Line and PolFerry RoRos; bulkers; and lots of medium sized tankers, general cargo and coasters.
