Summer break

I'm offline for a few weeks because of the summer holiday. I have internet on my cell phone for email and such things but not for blogging, to complicated without a normal keyboard and a data limit. Look at the picture carefully and maybe you can figure out which direction we will go for our vacation and the reason why it is that direction. Ok, why not......the first person who gives the right answers in the comment box gets a nice postcard when we are back. The rules: only your first comment counts and people living in The Netherlands are excluded.

I wish you all a very nice time, bye bye.

Hmmm.....June's answer is the first and ok but Dot's answer is more complete. The best thing to do is make it two postcards. Of course it was the ferry to get off the island by car but we do have an airfield, that was a possibility too. We went to the provincie (county?) Drenthe in the Netherlands. June and Dot mail your address to eyeon@texel.com and I will send the postcards as soon as possible. Thank you all for your comments.

Here is the answer to your question about my camera, Dick.

One of my Canon's the XTi is the same as the Canon 400d.

The newer one is the XSi which is the same as the Canon 450d.

I don't have a clue but I'd say June is probably right since the little boat is there and you have to catch a ferry to leave the island unless maybe there is an airport there and then I still don't have a clue.
Hope you enjoy your trip and take lots of photos to show us!

I have no idea but I hope you have a wonderful and safe trip.

Anyway, have a great time!!! :-D

I guess I am not the first, but have a good one, it is always nice to have some time off, and turn off that cell phone too lol, enjoy, Anna :)

I too say you are going to Den Helder. Because of the picture of the boat you will be spending your vacation down by the water.

Where ever you go, have a great time. I'm sure you will come back with some beautiful pictures.

very nice shot

Middle Ditch said...

Mmmmm, too many Den Helders, that was going to be my guess too.

Okay, I say that you are going to De Koog because they have a smashing camping site where you can make loads of wonderful nature walks and take many, many wonderful photographs.

Have fun anyway, where ever you are going.

GMG said...

You headed south! Everybody does... ;))

USAincognito said...

I am going to guess Wezenland... ;)
Where ever you are headed, I hope you enjoy your vacation time!

RuneE said...

I know I am late and I know that it has been suggested by several,but here goes: Texel is an island, so to get anywhere you would probably need a ferry - so you go to Den Helder.

Hallo Dick
Nog niet terug van vakantie?
I mag niet meedoen " waar-naartoe je gaat" want ben NL'se, maar ik denk een plaats via de vaste wal, ( ik zal de naam niet noemen voor de buitenlanders, dat zou flauw zijn....)

Fijne vakantie gewenst, wij zijn nog in frankrijk tot 9/15 aug, maar ik post :'sheduled', moet je ook eens proberen....

groet en tot ziens via blogs, JoAnn

Ackworth Born said...

don't know where you are going but I'd love to know what is at De Cocksdorp being careful to get the spelling right!

Willem K. said...

Dick,

I think you're looking to the east and therefore I think you're going to DENmark.
Due to your rules I can't compete, but a nice compliment will do nicely.

Spetacular shots. The signs are of interesting abstract

Sunkyoung said...

This is such a great idea, Dick! Have a wonderful time in Den Helder. It excites me to just see Dutch language. I'll be in your region soon!

Judith van Praag said...

On vacation in Drenthe? You're bound to have a great time. I hope you took your bikes. The bike routes in that province are wonderful. If you pass through Steenbergen (near the Hunebedden) do stop at De Jachtlust for coffee and apple pie and tell them hi from me. Their dinners are good too by the way.

...oh boy, this is where I left my last comment, wow time flies...Anna :)
