OMG hard to believe we left in this snow/ice storm on February 6th.
Has been already over a month ago that we where in Florida enjoying that sooooo beautiful sunshine every day by +24 to 28 and water at +16 . I was swimming in it every day on and on….just so perfect.
Sunset right by the beach every night…I am still looking for the star in that evening sky every night, my start always full of love and happy moments walking in the water looking for the shells. Even thought I could not bring home some of the coral that washed up on the shore…..nooo noooo you can’t do that!!
My fun moments taking pictures of birds flying by…or posing for me.
Smiles Yes “I am a bigger kid then You thought I am” …smiles that is me. Always will be that way…That is my Life, my Love, my life of happiness.
More then I am That is me.
Sleeping on the balcony hearing the waves crushing onto the shore.
Seeing the stars and full moon.
Hearing the birds in the morning waking me up….My Dream always.
“Spending time with my mom back home in Switzerland and with great friends….”
Exiting part of this trip was the Ms. Excellence Allegra our Ship stopped in Amsterdam….yessss guess who has a store there? Stephen West and Penelope…I just had to visit this store! We bought yarn and some stitch markers with…
Oh yes bicycle theme. So cool
Reni my girlfriend was totally on board to find this store too. Though she doesn’t knit much she still bought yarn so this is where I came into play….happily I have to say
Let me tell you the people just sooooo happy all the time…but how could you not living in the sunshine all the time and having the sound of the evening crickets chirp you to sleep. Once the crickets stop you know it is time to get up!!!….and the birds start to sing….as you hear the surf of the ocean hit the shore and the palm leaves swing in the wind…So Peaceful and relaxing.
We where able to go onto two snorkeling trips. One with a catamaran along the Caribbean side of the Ocean that we booked and one right from our resort. Guess what, that trip we won at Monday nights mangers party …luck us the ocean was calm on the second last day of our holidays.
Conch shells where lots to be found…smiles without the conch in it and to get the pink colour one had to find the one that was still housing the conch in it…and hubby dove down to the ocean floor several times to find some for us….We had seen a stingray and several schools of beautiful fishes even two big barracuda where close to us too…..
I think the pictures will tell you a story all on its own.
I sure can tell you I really miss that part of our world…and I am happy to say all that rain has finally stopped that we have been getting since we came back …..so I can be outside again enjoying my gardening now all is green… (cry not ocean blue….)
Memories are beautiful to have too….one day we will be back.
Rheinfelden is a town next to my hometown Möhlin only about a 10 minute drive away from us. Love visiting it every time I come home. For many reasons…Has my favourite yarn store “Strickeria Gomitolo” there. Rheinfelden has a really nice “Altstadt” all in cobblestone and only foot traffic. Sooo very pretty you have to walk the side paths on your next visit too! See one of my older posts. Rheinfelden is surrounded by a huge stone wall from the old times
From the Swiss Rheinfelden you can cross the bridge by foot to the German Rheinfelden too. And on the way there have a walk on our famous “Inseli” You can see the “Schwarzwald” (Blackforest ) from there too. It is home to Feldschlösschen, the most popular beer in Switzerland. Oh and did I tell you about the little Goats they have just outside the city walls…sooo cute. I am in love with the animals…
Rheinfelden ist eine Altstadt neben meiner Heimatdorf Möhlin nur ca. 5-10 Minuten mit dem Auto von uns entfernt. Wenn ich auf Besuch gehe in die Schweiz gehe ich immer dort in das Städtlein für viele Gründe…es besitzt mein lieblings Geschäft “Strickeria Gomitolo“. Die “Altstadt” ist belegt mit……. Ohhh bitte helft mir aus hier ist es auch “Kobblestein” genannt? auch nur für den Fußgängerverkehr . Sooo super toll! Doch Du musst auch die vielen Seitenwege hoch laufen ! Ja auch das das Felschösschen Bier kennen wir ja alle
Von dem Schweizer Rheinfelden kannst Du auch zu Fuss über die Brücke zu den Deutschen Rheinfelden. Und auf dem Weg dorthin schnell auf einen Spaziergang an unserem berühmten “Inseli” von dort kannst Du den Schwarzwald im Hintergrund sehen. Oh ja hatte bald fergessen …die Geissli sind sooo sweet…
It felt like we had the store to our selfes….So big and almost no one was in the isles. Love the bread section and the fruit tray was kind of fun too. One basket with three different fruits. The cheese ahhh so yummy wish I could have brought some back. But no dairy products are allowed to bring to Canada. Sadly.
The meat and cold cuts wow so many choices. Then I totally forgot the CHOCOLATE section….ahhhhh here I did bring some back.
Es fühlte sich an, als hätten wir den Laden für uns allein….so groß und es hatte gar nicht viele Einkäufer. Liebe die Brot Abteilung und die Früchten waren eigendlich recht toll abgepackt. Einen Korb mit drei verschiedenen Früchten. DerKäse ahhh so lecker, ich wünschte, ich könnte etwas zurück bringen. Aber keine Frishen
Milchprodukte sind erlaubt mitzubringen nach Kanada. Leider.
Die Fleischabteilung und Wurstwaren Wow so viele Auswahlmöglichkeiten. Dann habe ich total vergessen die Schokoladen nah ja ….ahhhh hier bringe ich einige zurück.
Oh I tell you every time I come home to Switzerland I see a Garden full of flowers at my Mom’s home. But what really seems to be special is this bouquet of flowers.
My mom has them grow wild in her grass and every time she has to cut the grass they get cut down:-((
I told her I would cut the grass today for her, but what do I do with all the flowers? Yes just cut them was her reply …. No way will I cut them off just like that. At my home in Canada we can’t wait to see some flowers grow and now I have to chop them down…really:-(
So no grass was cut today and I decided to make myself a nice spring bouquet for my memory to keep when I am traveling back to Canada
