Heartwarming Memories


When I was going through some pictures this evening I found these three photos of Kaefer and myself, taken by the Geek during our visit to the Northern German island of Spiekeroog. We were staying there for a long weekend, having a family reunion with the Geek's parents, his siblings and their families. We spent a lot of time together, but there were also times when we just wanted to be on our own. Sometimes you also need a little bit of distance if you're so close together.


Spiekeroog is a pretty cool place (and I mean this in regard of its temperature) and very very windy. However, it has a gorgeous sand beach that goes on for miles and miles. It is wonderful to walk there, look for shells (here you find mainly what they call Venus shells), watch jelly fish and even get your feet wet if you don't mind the cold. In short, a great place to walk and spend time with the people you love.

We took a long walk there later in the afternoon when the sun was closer to the horizon (but not much - this was the middle of June and the sun sets very late at night) and the light was warm and golden. Seeing these pictures of Kaefer and myself just warms my heart. Such beautiful memories.
