We eat at a lovely farmhouse. You can also stay there for the night it is called the 14 stars, I love the name, this is because the have 14 totally different rooms. We drove from Den Hoorn, to De Koog to Den Burg.


Texel is an island just above Den Helder, in just 25 minutes by boot you will be there but the atmosfere is totally different, here some pictures of yesterday. We just went for a day. Mostly people go there to visit for a longer period, but one day is also very nice to do.
