We are enjoying our time with the family in Germany, but took a break this weekend to go on a cruise from Hamburg to Heligoland. We walked around the island this afternoon, looked at the famous rock “Lange Anna”, which now houses a colony of Eurasian gannets. The evening there was a “Pappboot” regatta, youngsters in boats built of paper and glue only. Some even made it all the way around the course of about 200m.
