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.
