Altenbeken, Germany - 16th September 2012

By: mcdaniels

Hi mummy,
today afternoon we went on a bike ride to Altenbeken, that is to say Konsta, 3*Euro[tv] and me drove by bike and Joesy[tv] drove by tractor!
On the way there we watched the Beke river and the "little viaduct" and took a rest at the bank of Beke river (a very small river, I think...) Then we reached Altenbeken with it's landmark, the "Big viaduct". Though Altenbeken is a small town it is also a junction of German Railways. So in the middle of the town there is standing a very old steam engine. Wow!
On the way back home we took a rest again, very comfortable  :rolleyes:
Best wishes, yours Knirrie

Friedrichskoog, Germany - 22nd September 2012

By: mcdaniels

Hi mum,
today morning Konsta, Joesy, 3*Euro, Mary, hostmum, hostdad, the dogs and me started our holiday trip to Friedrichskoog, North Sea.
Mary the sheep came with us, because she was born in Friedrichskoog and wants to be our tourist guide.
We drove by car...and suddenly somebody switched off the light! Mary calmed us down explaing that we were driving through the long tunnel underneath the river Elbe.
Arriving in Friedrichskoog we first went to the dyke that protects the dry land against the sea. Climbing up the dyke we saw a nice sunset.
I'm looking forward to our adventures, mummy! Best wishes, yours Knirrie

Friedrichskoog, Germany - 23rd September 2012

By: mcdaniels

Hi mum,
in the morning we went to a baker's shop by bike for buying some rolls. Joesy had taken her tractor with her on holiday, so she could drove on the way back.
It was a sunny day, so we had a breakfast outside.
Later we had a walk (Joesy of course drove by tractor) along the coast to the lighthouse of Friedrichskoog. Suddenly Joesy had an accident! Luckily Mary helped us pulling the tractor out of the hole!
Near the lighthouse we explored the environment, especially the gaps between the stones, and suddenly a gigantic crab stood in front of us  :o, but luckily it was a very peaceable crab.
All the best, yours Knirrie

Friedrichskoog, Germany - 24th September 2012

Today it's been a very rainy day, so hostmum and hostdad have read almost the whole day...
Reading is boring, so we've studied the television program and have made ourselves comfortable in front of the television...

Meldorf, Germany - 25th September 2012

By: mcdaniels

Hi mummy,
today we drove to Meldorf, a little town near Friedrichskoog with a cathedral and nice street cafés.
First we went into a bookshop (the boys saw a poster in front of it and studied enthusiastically the "chests of the coast"...typically male...) and while hostmum and hostdad were searching for books and calendars, Konsta, Joesy, 3*Euro and me rummaged around a bit...and imagine, suddenly we heard somebody calling! Looking around we discovered a little elk who said his name was Soeren and he would be bored and wanted to experience adventures. We all had the same idea: "Come with us", we said, "and become a ToyVoyager!"
And so he did! We four kept an eye on the entrance and Soeren came out carefully. When hostmum found us outside the bookshop and saw we suddenly were five, she went back and bought Soeren, because it was love at first sight!
In honour of the occasion we went into hostmum's favourite café...yummy!
I'm sure we'll have a lot of fun together with Soeren!
Best wishes, yours Knirrie

Today hostmum and hostdad borrowed a bike on which two old dog ladies can be transported. On the way back we saw an old cannon and entered it...I asked myself whether it was a good idea to look INTO a cannon...

Today we saw a sign that explained that latitude 54th runs through Friedrichskoog. And we watched the North Sea through a pair of binoculars. Great!

Friedrichskoog, Germany - 27th September 2012

By: mcdaniels

Today we got to know the "Trischendamm", a dam built of stones that goes above two kilometres into the Sea. You can walk on it with water all around. Joesy wanted to drove by tractor, but after a few metres it became very very windy so she couldn't drive on and hostmum had to hold us in her hands so that we didn't fly away. Hostmum said that our mums wouldn't be amused if they had to search us at the coast of England or somewhere else...
Back at the start we played sea voyage on a little ship standing there for children. The ship was called "Hoppe Tosse" like the ship in the book "Pippi Langstrumpf".

Today it's been hostmum's and hostdad's wedding anniversary. So they showed us the mill in which they married a few years ago. In front of the mill there is a big heart made of iron...we made a nice remembering photo... :rolleyes:
In honour of the occasion hostmum and hostdad wanted to eat out...without us...but we four creeped behind into the restaurant...I'm sure they haven't discover us  ;)

Brunsbüttel, Germany - 1st October 2012

By: mcdaniels

Today we went to Brunsbüttel, a town that is divided by the Kiel Canal. Every 10 minutes two ferries cross the canal transporting cars, bikes and persons free of charge. And so we cross. Though the crossing was short we were happy to have a lifeboat on the ferry.
Then we visited the lock and a very big ship leaving it. Wow!

Friedrichskoog, Germany - 2nd October 2012

By: mcdaniels

On the way to the little fishing port of Friedrichskoog we saw a worrying sign: a car flying into the water  :o We were glad to be on the way by bike.
Unfortunately there was no fishing cutter in the harbour, only one in the shipyard.
