Impressions from Texel

Tomorrow we will be back home, but I am sure that I will come back to this beautiful island again! Texel is the largest Wadden isle and the only one belonging to the province North Holland (which is where we live). I have been here twice as a little boy, so it was about time for me to return. The only other Wadden isle that I know from personal experience is Ameland. I would like to visit all the Wadden isles (including the German ones!) to take some more photographs...

Sosha still has pain in her right leg and foot - she wasn't able to do as much as she wanted to, but all in all she had a good time here too. We do hope that she will soon recover completely so that she will be able to play soccer again and join us with all family activities.

I want to share these panorama pics with you - I took these photographs today during a long walk along the north side of the isle. The first pic has a strange bend in the horizon - it is hard to avoid this with an automated digital photomontage and such a wide angle! Please visit my photoblog if you want to see some more!
