Catching Up: Going on a Wadlopen in Holland!

Now that we are settled in our new home, the plan is to post about the places we visited but did not blog about. It may take some time but we are determined to get caught up!

~~~~~~

After Henk Jan and Fleur's wedding,


a bunch of us went on a Wadlopen in northern Holland.

We took this boat:


to this island (which is really just a big mudflat that goes away during high tide):


and met up with Dr. Emmett Brown.

 

We put on some silly shoes,


did some walking

 

and learned about all of the creatures that live on these islands.

  

We visited the only building on the island where a bird watcher lives, 

 
(When the tide is high, the water goes up the bottom of that house!)

and then we got back on the boat and went in search of the only restaurant in the area that was open late that night.

 

This trip was truly one of the highlights of our time in Europe - a huge thank you to HJ, Fleur and all of their awesome friends and family for including us in this very Dutch experience!

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?" Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit , we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing... ( Vid link for the iPhone impaired ) Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something... And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.
