Mud Walk

Last night we drank Jaegermeister and beer with some of Tanbay's sister's friends. Cliche German as the drinking choice was, they are all lovely people and so today we all went to Dangast to see the Nordsee.

From Oldenburg, where we currently are, it only takes half an hour to get there in the car. However, it took a lot longer for us as we went in two cars and the BMW had to keep stopping to let the Fiat catch up (Germany vs Italy, go figure).

Now this is the first time we've been to the beach since Australia, so if you haven't read The Best Beaches in Australia let me give you some context, this is what we were used to:

Scarborough Beach Perth

Clear blue water, clean white sand

This is what we found in Germany:

Nordsee Mud

It was hilarious, we couldn't see the sea at all. But I was still pleased to be near the Nordsee (I've been waiting eight years for this). Then we were told that we were going to go walking in the mud.. 

At first I was convinced that I was going to fall flat on my face or fall into a mud quicksand spot or something, but then I got used to it and started 'skating' in it. Call me whatever you like, I had so much fun in the mud! 

Nordsee Mud Walk

There's nothing quite like it for cooling the blood. 

Lots of people were walking in it and one kid of about ten got in wearing just his speedos, covered himself head to toe and became a mudboy. 

That evening my feet felt so relaxed and tingly I couldn't even feel them, and I had one of the best night's sleep ever!

It was a great German day.
