Tuesday 31 May

Today, the mist continues. It comes off the sea, which is cold at this time of year, and meets warm air over the island and the mainland. It looks and feels like haar, and keeps the temperature down. Undeterred, we set off by bicycle to the Posthuys Restaurant, 5 miles away, where the sun came out for our coffee and applepie with cranberry sauce. A ginger cat joined us for a moment. We then proceeded further south, to the former army base (now derelict) and the crossing to the North Sea beach, 6½ miles from town. The mist drifted onto the beach again as we returned to the cycles. Returning north, there was a lot of birdlife in the Kroonspolder reserves, geese, lapwings, ducks - and a hen harrier. We had a break at Bomenland, then went back to the Boeier along the Wadden Sea side of the island.
