Terschelling is a municipality and an island in the northern Netherlands, one of the West Frisian Islands.
Wadden islanders are known for their resourcefulness in using anything and everything that washes ashore. With few trees to use for timber, most of the farms and barns are built with masts recovered from shipwrecks. The islands are surrounded by famous shipwrecks, and even today many containers wash ashore that are blown off the decks of cargo ships in the North Sea. Perhaps the most famous shipwreck off the coast of Terschelling is the Lutine, whose bell hangs in Lloyd's of London. Another famous ship was the Oka 18, which sank near the town of Formerum. Until recently her funnel could be seen rising out from the sea. In West Terschelling a pub was named after this ship.
The main source of income on Terschelling is tourism. There is some agriculture, but a large part of the island has become a nature reserve.
Terschelling is well-known for the yearly Oerol Festival during which theatre-performances are played throughout the island, making use of its landscape and nature.
Terschelling can be reached by ferry from the mainland Frisian town Harlingen and from Vlieland by high-speed catamaran.
The back of the hotel and the next building where you can see only part was where hubby been for his DP (Dynamic positioning simulator) course.
This was our view, the harbour, every morning during breakfast.
We've been out to dinner every night and this being one of them.
Covered wagon (Huifkartocht), i've signed in to one of the arranged ride for this one but unfortunately there was not enough people to make the trip around the island. The season is over, unless somebody booked it as a group.
These are some pictures i've taken during my walks everyday, only one village but atleast the biggest or the centre of the island.
We stayed on the hotel for our last diner as it began to rain when hubby got back from his course. We had to walk about 15 minutes to go to the center and 15minutes back in the dark. The food was really delicious but quite expensive.
Well, we've enjoyed our stay and especially being together!!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog especially to those who take the time to leave me a comment. I do appreciate them so much.
