Holiday Pics

Jamie and I spend the past two weeks on holiday in Germany, where we took way over a 1,000 pictures. Below is a selection that sums up our holiday.
We went to stay with my family for a few days, enjoying actual summery weather.

We went shopping in Leipzig one day and because it was that hot, that I just had to find a fountain to cool down a little.

Back at my sister's house I spent a lot of time in her pool, the only way for me to cope with the heat, as I'm no longer used to proper summer heat.

While we were over in Germany my parents treated us to a 5-day trip to Prerow at the Baltic Sea, where the weather wasn't too kind to us unfortunately, but we still managed to have a great time ...

... playing crazy golf, ignoring the puddles

... going to the local museum, that had a festival day demonstrating local craftsmanship 

... discovering an old-fashioned "beach changing tent" in the museum

... tasting freshly smoked herring, a local delicacy

... being amazed by the amount and size of locally found amber, something that area is famous for

... as well as adoring the beauty of the famous DarĪ² doors, a legacy of local fishermen

We also braved the many huge mosquitoes and went for a walk in the forest, where we came across some pretty toadstools

Needless to say, we spent a lot of time on the beach

... discovering old boats

... paddling in the sea, where you can go in really far, as it's quite flat for a few metres, followed by sand banks

... rescuing stranded jelly fish, releasing them back into the sea

... witnessing beautiful sunsets

... feeding sea gulls

... and simply relaxing in some of the so called "beach baskets", you can find everywhere around the Baltic Sea.

As you can see, I had a lovely time, but now we're back in England and the weather here seems worse than ever, although we do hope that it's not too bad tomorrow as we have plans to go out, so wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed.
