Gilbert: Food and Games


I've been playing games and gone on a few short outings since my last post.

We had lunch in town and I got yummy mushrooms.

This is Maple Valley, which is a fun game where you prepare for a spring festival.

I bought a really awesome beer with a cool illustration.

We went to our favorite restaurant for a special celebration.

Where I got a Wasabini of course!

We played MLEM Space Agency: a game where you send cats on space missions.

And we played Sleeping Gods, an adventure game. I also got cake!

Wen grocery shopping in Germany we stopped for hot chocolate.

And we played Power Hungry Pets, a fun card game.

And my owner told me more games are on the way!

Gilbert: Schiermonnikoog last few days.


We had to get back to work, so that's why I didn't have time to blog about our trip last week.

After we made our way around the big lake that normally isn't there we finally got back on track. 

See: there's he light house in the distance.

We didn't take any pictures at the light house this time, as there was a lot of wind and we wanted to find a spot to sit and have something to eat and drink. When we finally found a spot it was far away from the light house,

After our break we continued our walk. We saw this house that was in  big lake as well. There's usually water around it, but not as much as there was now.

Back in the village we had Fried Fish! Yum!

We got groceries for dinner and relaxed for the rest of the day.

On Thursday we ha a lazy day. We did visit a friend in the afternoon which was really fun!

In the evening we went out for dinner and I had a Gin Tonic  Cocktail.

Friday was our last day!
We visited the tourist center and had hot chocolate with Amaretto at a hotel.

It was a nice hotel, but not as nice as the hotel Sullivan has stayed at, he says.

The weather was miserable.

So we decided to stay at the hotel a bit longer. 

We played pickomino while waiting for the rain to stop.

When it did get dry we made a last walk around he village.

Then it was time to catch a bus to the harbor and take the ferry. 

By Schiermonnikoog! We hope to visit again soon.

I had a great time!

Gilbert: A Windy Walk with Obstacles (Schiermonnikoog Day 3)


On Wednesday it was even more windy than the days before, but still sunny. We decided to leave the bikes and go for a walk. 

WE took a route Sullivan told me about towards the light house.

I don't remember him telling there was so much water here though...

This is te right way according to the sign.

Wait... What?

The road is underwater!

And it was too deep to wade through without getting totally wet.

How do we get to the light house now?

WE walked next to the water for a while, but couldn't find a way across.

So close, yet so far.

Finally we found a small path through the bushes that went in the right direction.

We had to be careful, but we made it!

And I spotted mushrooms along the way.

Next: more Schiermonnikoog.

Gilbert: Beach and Sea Spam (Schiermonnikoog Day2)


On our second day on Schiermonnikoog the weather was still good so we biked to the beach.

You know what that means, right:
Beach and Sea Picture Spam!

It was windy, but otherwise it was wonderful weather.

After enjoying the  beach we found a place out of the wind.

And had a snack: cheesy croissants.

And hot chocolat with Amaretto. Yum.

Next we biked back towards the village.

Because of the wind we decided to rest for a bit at our favorite spot and we had more hot chocolat.

We also had a look at the beach there.

Looks like the water came really high during the last storm.

Back at the apartment there was more relaxing and reading. A friend came over for dinner and we had a great evening until we had ti kick him out at 22:00 according to the rules of the apartment.

Next: a windy walk
