Happy surprises!

Look what I got:

A box full of surprises! All kinds of yummy things hidden in paper and little cups. I unwrapped them carefully and ate them all.

M gave it to me as a present, because today is the last day of the year 2017. Tomorrow it will be a new year with a new number, M tells me. Typical human to measure time in numbers – I think that is very odd. Anyway: they wish each other a happy new year, so I will do so too. I hope this new year will be full of adventures and happy surprises, forĀ  all of you! Happy new year!

Exciting encounter

We just returned from a long walk in the dunes and on the beach. It is cold outside, winter is here!

I don’t mind the cold. As long as I keep moving I am warm. So I was glad when we were on the beach, so I could run.

However, after a while I slowed my pace, because there was something very awkward moving on the beach:

It was slithering over the sand (one can hardly call that movement walking) and it was not amused to see us. It made noises and M said: “I don’t think it likes us being here.” Well, I am certain it did not like us, because I could understand what it said. I won’t repeat it here, but it was very clear. Sea creatures use some rough language!

We never met a sea creature like this before. I cautiously investigated it, from a distance – one never knows how wild creatures react and I like my dainty nose. Anyway: it smelled like salt. Fishy things. Exciting!
