Schiermonnikoog - Day 2 - Part 1

Saturday morning the sky looked clear.

There was a chance of rain, but we decided to go on a walk anyway.

The water tower in all its glory.

We decided to walk to the lighthouse.

I spotted this sig.
Black Dunes Path. Sounds mysterious.

So of course we had to make a detour and walk along Black Dunes Path. We finally reached a crossroads. One road was leading to other parts of the island, the other had a sign that it was a dead end. However tempting the dead end path looked, we decided to double back to get to the lighthouse.

I saw this cool sign that tells you that dogs can walk free.

Back on track!

It was a really beautiful walk.

The lighthouse!

And look: there's the sea.

I had to go explore a little further of course.

Coming up next: more Schiermonnikoog picture spam.

A Birthday Trip to Schiermonnikoog

Last Friday we left for a birthday trip!

We went to our favorite island: Schiermonnikoog.
We took a train, a bus, then a boat, and then another bus to get to the hotel where we were staying. It was a very rainy day.

At the end of the afternoon we reached the hotel.
We had a room with a view on the water tower again. How cool!

There was a bottle of wine waiting for us, and the attendant acted like it was normal, but we never got a bottle of wine without asking for it before. We finally discovered a message on the back of the card: it was a birthday present from friends who secretly arranged it with the hotel!

Thanks J&D!

We were a bit tired of all the traveling, so we rested for a bit.

Then we had a very yummy dinner.

It was too dark and rainy for a walk after dinner, so I had to wait until the next day to explore the island.

Last Blog Post of 2016

Even though my owner caught a cold again, I had a fun last week of the year.

I had a relaxing 2nd day of Christmas.

On Tuesday I received a card from Bob and Dilly.

And I got a new friend as a late Christmas present from a friend.

I also received my mystery gift from Kerry Schafer.
Penguin notes!

And on Thursday I got a zombie book from Beanie!

I also hatched the dinosaur eggs Miki sent us for Christmas.
That was a lot of fun!

Tonight I'll be celebrating New Year's Eve, I'll be toasting for a wonderful 2017 filled with fun adventures and friends.

Have a great New Year's Eve everyone!

Christmas Presents!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas.

I myself still am enjoying the second day of Christmas, but thought I'd post about my Christmas presents.

First I have to show you the 3D triceratops puzzle I made.
I got the puzzle from Sinterklaas. Isn't it cool?

A couple of days before Christmas a big parcel arrived.

It was filled with Christmas presents from Miki.

We also got a big box of goodies from my owner's employer.

I always love playing with the packaging.

Miki's presents had very pretty packaging.

I was very curious what she sent us, but waited until Christmas to open the presents.

New piggy friends!

There were lots of cool presents:
Dino eggs, a dino excavation kit, a piggy calendar, lots of yummy treats, a cool piggy pen, dino and piggy erasers, a tin. What a great Christmas package!

Thanks Miki! You are awesome!

We also received more gifts from others: books, a gift card which will be used for more books, a surprise gift that didn't arrive yet, but that I'm really curious about, and lots of cool Christmas cards.

So a big thank you to Melliane, Jeffe, Laura, Kerry, and everyone who sent us a Christmas card as well!

A New Friend and Yummy Food

Last weekend we went to Kampen for a birthday dinner.

I made a new friend there:
Candy the pug.

Candy is a very friendly pug and we had lots of fun together.

I got to eat clams.
They were very yummy.

Candy tried one as well.

I wasn't so sure about the next course even though my owner said it was venison.

Mushrooms! That's more like it.

Candy liked the French fries the best.

But that's not a French fry!

Candy gave the pencil to her owner who used the pencil to draw pictures of us.

Next we got to select dessert.

Candy picked a mug full of ice cream with whipped cream on top.

I got chocolate ice cream with vanilla sauce. Yum!

Kampen at night!

It was a really fun evening with very yummy food!
