Mrs. Nesbitt’s ABC-Wednesday
My 135th entry – bijdrage
Started-Gestart: 28-08-2014 : 15-G
Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photo-meme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week. I’m always curious to what you come up with!
The challenging letter of this week is I and I’ve chosen for the word Island
The Netherlands, where I live, is a very small European country as you might know.
Part of The Netherlands are some islands, in total there are 25.
Some of them, 8 to be precise, lie above the mainland and are called (from left to right):
Texel, Vlieland, Terschelling, Ameland, Schiermonnikoog, Noorderhaaks (also called: Razende Bol) Rottumerplaat & Rottumeroog. The first 5 have people living there, the last 3 don’t. I guess those names are difficult, impossible maybe, for you to pronounce…
Texel has 13.614 inhabitants, Vlieland 1103, Terschelling 4870, Ameland 3500, Schiermonnikoog 925.
Last Sunday I took a trip to Schiermonnikoog with a very dear friend of mine.
My husband was away all day, his wife also, so the both of us decided to go out of a foto-shooting-trip as we are great hobby-photographers. I came home in the evening with lots of photo’s ofcourse… so if you would like to take a look at them? Click HERE!
By the way… to get there we ofcourse needed to use the ferry, although on the picture above the distance seems small, a direct line to sail is not possible so that trip takes about 45 minutes because the ferry has to make many curves and so extra miles.
From the house in which I live to the place where the ferry leaves is by car a drive of just a little more than one hour.
Have a nice ABC-Wednesday-day / – week ~
