A Birthday Trip to Schiermonnikoog - Day 2

On Friday it was grey outside, but dry, so after breakfast we went for another walk.

This time we walked towards the lighthouse and the beach.

I love this lighthouse.
It's very beautiful, I think.

The dark clouds were breaking up a bit.

I can already see the sea.

The sun was starting to break through the clouds.
A beautiful sight.

Almost at the beach!

And there it was.
The beach on Schiermonnikoog is very long in some places, and there's even new dunes forming at one side of the island, while the sea eats up some of the island on the other side. This way the island 'moves'.

More beautiful clouds.

We walked on the beach for a while. There was a cold wind, but I kept my ears warm.

Finally we walked back to our hotel.

I spotted a weird bird statue along the way.

And after such a long walk I deserved another mug of hot chocolate and some amaretto of course!

In the afternoon we visited friends, and we had dinner at the hotel again. We spent the evening reading and relaxing again.
This is the life!

Staat de vogel bij het oude koloniehuys?

That is a strange statue indeed. It reminds me of the statues in Donald Duck.
