We decided to break away for the long weekend and head up north to Julianadorp and Den Helder.
On our way we had the customary stop at KuierKos for coffee, cake and a taste of home. Filled up on biltong and other goodies, and made our way up north.
On arrival we took Rufus for a long beach walk, and we were blown away by the wind. Luckily it was a weekend affair, so we could go back the next day
The We even giggled at the sign and wondered if that means horses without riders are allowed or if no horsing around is allowed whatsoever.
The beaches really go on forever and on the beach the next day it was, as always, a pleasure to see Rufus playing with the other dogs and running for the pure joy.
After the long walk it was around lunch anyway, and what better way to enjoy it than with a coffee and appelgebak?
After recovering our strength, we ventured to nearby Den Helder and had a walk around the old harbour. The area feels like a working living museum where the old buildings are still in use and some beautiful ships are visible up close.
One of the old buildings is now an ice cream shop, and although Marinus ordered a coffee, he got a mini ice-cream too!
Be kind. Stay safe.
