Gilbert - A Birthday Trip: Day 3


On Monday it was our birthday!
It would be rainy again in the afternoon, so we went for a walk soon after waking up. 

I think I like the water tower better without artsy movies on it.

As sometimes happens, our birthday was on Blue Monday. Apart from my hat I wasn't feeling blue though.

The lighthouse!
Even though the weather was grey, I enjoyed our walk to the lighthouse.

Hmm... I think this poem was in Fries, because it sure wasn't Dutch as I know it. I think it said something about the lighthouse always standing guard high on top of the dunes.

We walked a little further toward the beach.

At this point you can't really get to the actual beach, but it's beautiful here.

According to my owner, we could walk a short way along the dunes to get to a spot where we could reach the beach.

She was wrong!

On earlier trips to Schiermonnikoog the water usually didn't get this high according to my owner. We decided to retrace our steps and walked back to the lighthouse.

We took a slight detour on our way back to the village so we could walk on the Black Dunes Path!

We went back to the apartment and made it there before the rain started again. We relaxed and had lunch.

In the afternoon we visited the bookstore.
I got a magazine on psychology and we also found a book for Sullivan.

Next we relaxed and read some more while outside it rained.

In the evening we went out for dinner and my owner had beef stew while I had French fries again.

After dinner there was more relaxing, reading, and hot chocolate with Amaretto. It was a really fun birthday.
