We planned this weekend months ago and we were all looking forward to it. And this time we chose to visit Zeeland (a province of NL in the south-west). I have been there several times in the past with Martins family and it's just a beautiful place to be. I love the sound of the sea and although I don't really prefer spending hours on the beach sunbathing, I loved it this weekend. We've even been swimming in the sea!!! Still cold, but satisfying after baking (burning...) in the sun.
So, what more have we been doing? What do women do, when there are no men around? Nothing spectacular, actually. For instance, we discussed toes. Did you know you can recognise people's characteristics by looking at their toes? Little lesson in toe-philosophy: Take a look at the second big toe on your right foot; is it bigger or just as big as your big toe? Than, you are ambitious! Take a look at the second big toe on your left foot: Is it bigger or just as big as your big toe? Than you are a sensitive person and you don't succeed in cleaning up the mess you make. Ok, untill here, it's pretty innocent and general. But, if you can "seperate" your left little toe (which stands for selfconfidence and sex) from the others, it means you are capable of having sex without love or deep emotion! We are strongly doubting the reliablility of this philosophy, because five of us could actually move their little toe in a way we would call it seperate from the others. Well, anyway.. That's what women discuss, right? Stupid magazines, by the way. We also discussed marriage (two of us are getting married within the next year, including me), kids (one of us is pregnant), men (two of us are still single and well, the others are experts), work (we almost all have similar jobs (in child/youth care), etc. The usual women stuff ;)
Zeeland is also the place where the Klartext fotoshooting (2002/03?) took place. For those who don't know what I'm talking about, take a look at the picture on the right here. It's one of the pictures taken during that fotoshooting. I recognised the lighthouse immediately when I saw it on the picture. And this weekend, I just had to go to this specific place and I watched the sunset there. Stupid, I know. But it's just a very nice place. And well, being a Wise Guys fan.... ok... no more words, the pictures:
Isn't it beautiful?? Wow, it was so nice to sit there and wait for the sun to go down. The temperature was going down with the sun, but I didn't care. Skating back made me warm again.
On Sunday I saw something which I really wanted to do, but my friends didn't want to do it. I'm sure, if I would be there with another group of friends, we would hire this immediately. Just because, right? ;) You know ;)
So, our weekend was a great succes and we're already doing some brainstorming for next year. Maybe we'll go sailing in Friesland (in the north of NL)!
