Somewhere in the North Wadden Sea

Cycling paths on the island Pellworm, view from the dike
I've got my parents here visiting me in the north. Plan were made quickly, and we took the ferry to Pellworm on Saturday. Usual procedure: almost missing every ferry - don't know how we're able to do this every time. We cycled along the island's dike, getting a little red taint by using no sunscreen of course...

 A funny thingy to do: Walking and slipping around in the Wadden Sea! A bit disgusting to get stuck in there but some say it might be healthy for ... I don't know what for! A must see and do being at the North Sea.

Lighthouse around dawn on the island Amrum
On Sunday, we went to another island - this time: Amrum. Great island, beautiful scenery with a certain relax and chillout factor. So we did, and missed the ferry (the last one leaving the island that day) going back to main land. We got stuck - no way out. Nothing with us, just bikes and the clothes we had on. No hotel or apartment booked. And it turned out everything was fully booked. Some 10 phone calls later, we were forwarded to an elderly family offering us a place to stay for one night! Thanks so much - staying outside at night would have been too much, though! Thus, we've won a second day and a second chance to reach the ferry...
