I just returned from holidays at both the North and the Baltic Sea. One week each in Garding on Eiderstedt and Fährdorf on Poel.
We had a very nice time watching the water come and go at the North Sea, walking the mud flats and dikes, taking a boat trip to see seals, porpoises and other animals living the sea, visiting the wonderful Multimar Wattforum and other nice places. Had some good food (lot’s of fish) and a lot of wind and quite a bit of rain.
On Poel the weather changed for the better and we had beach time, sand-castle (or figures) building, paddling tours on the Breitling (Bay of Wismar) and lot’s of other things.
Here’s a few pictures from both seas, some of which also made it to my gallery.
Lots of beautiful mountains to climb, hike and see; lots of great food; building dams; shooting bows; fishing trout; riding funiculars; swimming in pools … and more than 500 updated work-email threads* while I was gone :|
But seriously, it was great … and to some extend even relaxing.
The kids recently expressed increased interest in a piggy bank … Erik was happy with an actual pig, Karla wanted something slightly more unconventional … a tree!?
Their wish is my command … today we finished the piggy-bank tree :)
Getting ready for Erik’s Pirate Party next week …
here’s some of the props I made for the obligatory treasure hunt.
Seem familiar? Yes, you’re right … Threepwood et al.
Let’s see how the kids (who won’t recognise anything) like it …
