Beach Trip

Today we went to the North Sea, somewhere near Brugge. I remember from high school German class (which honestly I don't remember much from) that lots of Germans took Holiday there.  I also remember thinking they were crazy.  Sun bathing and swimming in the North Sea?  Wouldn't they practically freeze to death?  What fun is that? I found myself  pleasantly surprised.  The weather was wonderful.  The water about as cold as the Pacific Ocean near California.

Mentioning California brings me to another point.  I am thinking this kind of beach is my beach.  I saw no abnormally sized breast and lipo-suctioned bodies.  What I did see was that most of the people had cellulite and/or stretch marks.  Normal looking bodies.  I felt right at home in my bikini.



  1. Hey Colleen, I just wanted you to know that besides FB, I am now going to be your blog stalker as well :) I'm so excited to read about your adventures in Europe! I must admit that that sounds like my kind of beach as well! Except maybe for all the old men in speedo's :(
    Take care! Can't wait to read more soon!

  2. Sounds like things are starting to fall in place. We love you guys and miss you. Can't wait to read more of your adventure...and I (Karyn) would go for the house in the country.

  3. @Heather-good thing you are a cute stalker.

    @ Karyn-another hiccup, but that is life. We just need to get alot of paper work done now. It would have been nice to know before we left and I had that month of waiting around.
