White walk

Last night it snowed and this morning we woke up in a whitish world. We just made a nice walk, it was very quiet. The sandy dunes had turned into white hills:

And the dune forest had turned magical:

There even was snow on the beach! I liked it.

It looks like there is more snow coming, it was pretty cloudy. We’ll see. For the next couple of hours I will be in my cosy bed, happily warm inside our house.

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!
