Getting A Very Creamy Ten Out Of Ten!

Finding ourselves visiting “Ijsboerderij Labora“, a Texel dairy farm that makes it’s own ice-cream, guaranteed that our 2016 Easter trip was going to have one, less than conventional pre-main course entrée.

The range of flavours in the long freezer cabinet had everyone deliberating on their perfect combination of flavours.

I didn’t get photographs of our selections simply because the kids disappeared outside with theirs and the adults inside were so busy getting down to ice-cream  demolition that slow-poke moi at the end of the queue arrived to find most the evidence already gone.

Needless to say the ice-creams were very good indeed. I also liked that there was an indoor sitting area, not large but a very welcome resting spot  after my tour of the play area.

Additionally, a large cupboard with locally made Texel products meant that we could take a few small gifts back for my Mother in law, I choose small pots of lanolin to massage into her hands since her skin was often very dry. I also attempted a few “Still life with tulips” photographs, not the best but ok reference material if I want it for a sketch one day. The wind may be cutting and fierce  today but that’s not stopping everyone from giving this outing a very creamy ten out of ten!

  1. So many ice cream flavours to choose from!!!!! Love your “Still life with tulips” photographs. I love tulips. There’s an Island in Lake Constance called Insel Mainau. The whole island is like a massive garden of beautiful flowers. If you go there in spring the collection of tulips is truly breathtaking.

    • sarsm,
      I didn’t know about this island… it sounds exceptionally beautiful. So many places on my wish list to go and see, I just added yet another one! (I now just need unlimited funds and four extra lifetimes lol)
