weekend in Zeeland!

We had a GREAT weekend! Thought to share some pictures taken, you can click on a picture to enlarge it.
It took us 4 and a half hours drive isntead of the expected 3hours, there's quite some traffic along the way. One couple who had taken the next ferry took them 5 and a half hours.

We've just arrived at the park where we are staying. They had booked two houses at Landal Port Greve. We've only stayed half an hour and then drove to Middelbug for dinner and the first activity which was indoor karting.


We had dinner at Koperen Ketel.
The couple from the right was the one who organize the outing this year.


With the indoor karting, pictures weren't that good. I've only did two rounds or race instead of the four rounds. I had pain on my right foot, i think i am too short for the car. But was fun to try. Actually, we didn't know the race was official and with winners and prizes in the end.
DH won the first prize and the second and third were husband and wife.
The game started at 9pm so we were really surprise when it was over and see the time it was already 12:30 am and we had to drive an hour back to the park.



The next day, Saturday, it was actually booked to go blokart sailing but it must be windy for that activity and it was bright and sunny and no wind so it was postponed for the next day. We went for a long walk instead and then to the Deltapark Neeltje Jans. It was quite late when we arrived at the park so we had to miss the boat trip.



Dinner at Eetcafe het Opstapje. It was a walking distance from the park and we've arrived at 7pm and left around 1pm.




Sunday, as expected was quite windy so off we went to the beach for the blokart sailing. Thought all were ready but we have to assemble everything first.
Everybody was really excited as most were for the first time but most of the boys wasn't able to make much of it. It was not windy enough, but the ladies had quite made some rounds and i did well too, as you can see on one of the picture.












After the blokart we went for a cup of coffee at one of the pavilions at the beach and then everyone headed back to the island, oh except the couple who organized the outing as they stayed till monday. If it were not for the kids i think we had stayed too.
It was really a FUN weekend!


I haven't done much with the hardanger pieces, i get dizzy while doing it on the car.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog especially to those who take the time to leave a comment. I do appreciate them so much.

Looks wonderful - I seriously think that we have to look at this Landal - we have been to Landal Coldenhove for years and years - it would be nice to go somewhere near the sea maybe next year.
