Schiermonnikoog - Day 3 - Part 1

On Sunday it looked like it would stay dry so we went for a long walk.

It was sunny, but there were also still clouds, which made for a beautiful sky.

After a walk in the woods we spotted the WWII bunker.

We decided to visit the bunker.

But first we made a detour.

We visited the small cemetery Vredenhof, which has Commonwealth war graves

There are soldiers buried here from both WWI & WWII, as well as some unknown persons who washed up on the shore of the island.

It's a small, peaceful graveyard.

After visiting the Vredenhof we went to the bunker.

On top of the bunker you have a great view.

There's also a metal map of the island on top of the bunker.

It had rained a lot so we didn't go inside the bunker.
It looked as if it might be very wet and dank inside.

Instead we continued our walk.

And after a while we reached the beach.

Coming next: lots of beach pictures
