Remember when I talked about how springtime makes me want new, pretty things? I got these awesome brightly-colored towels (on sale!) to satisfy that urge.
North Sea in springtime
This weekend we went to the beach up at St. Peter-Ording. We expected it to be chilly, but we didn’t quite expect it to be so incredibly COLD! It was extremely windy, and even though I bundled up as much as I could, I was still pretty cold most of the time.
However, Tobias and I had a nice time. We took a long walk on the beach, which was the widest beach I’ve ever seen in my life, and watched the many kite surfers in the ocean. We stopped at a restaurant to have a beer and some french fries, and then we took a nap in one of these roofed wicker beach chairs that are so popular in Europe.
There were also tons of these sand buggies there, which looked like a lot of fun!
Even though it wasn’t good beach weather, it was still a nice day. The sun was shining and it was good to get outside of Hamburg for some fresh, salty ocean air. Especially because I had spent the entire day before that pretty much incapacitated by a bad allergy attack. That was definitely no fun.
And St. Peter-Ording was only about 3 hours away by train. Want to know a strange fact about me? Any time something is 3 hours away, I automatically compare it to driving to Ocean City. That’s the beach my family has vacationed at every year since I was 2 years old. So if something is 3 hours away, I say, “That’s just like going to Ocean City!”
Does anybody else do that too, or am I just weird?
