On Good Friday of the Easter Weekend 2016, family Kiwidutch woke up in our accommodation on the island of Texel to a cool but beautiful day.
The temperature was due to rise substantially during the morning so we were very lucky with the weather.
We have one friend and her daughter staying with us and our other friends are in separate accommodation.
Himself and I have an idea of a museum we would really like to see today, but realise that it’s not something that the kids will necessarily find interesting.
There is a place close by called Ecomare, which we read is a nature museum, seal sanctuary, sea aquarium and a bird sanctuary.
All of the kids vote to go to Ecomare rather than to the museum, so we dropped off the friends staying with us and the others followed in their vehicle.
Himself and I are delighted to have a little bit of time to ourselves, no being rushed on by kids, bored on the sidelines. We wave off everyone else and turn the car around to spend some time somewhere very different…
