Hoist Your Flags

Does the size of a flag say something about the size of the country it represents? I almost believe it is so. The bigger the country the bigger the flag. That makes absolutely sense to me!

Here is the proof : Switzerland is at least three times as big as China and twenty times as big as Germany.

‘Giant Switzerland’

The bigger the flag, the bigger the country. That’s true. Or is it not true for the size of the country but for the Ego?

After all – does size really matter?

Yes, yes, yes – it does!!!

Easter Saturday 2017, 4.30 pm, Station 3

Right, the boats on the beach! How nice. No obstacle is blocking the way if you were out for a beach stroll. If you wanted to jogg the whole strech of the White Beach, especially during the 2 hours before sunset – Easter saturday was the day. A day for true beach lovers. Where were the felt a hundred thousand paraws lined up at Station 1 and from Paradise Garden Resort to Station 3? It was the Day-Off of all the water-sport-businesses.

Modern Art by Nature

Art by Nature? Isn’t that a contradiction? Either it’s art or it’s nature. It can not be otherwise. This is one way to define art, distinguish art from natural appearances. What is called artificial, can only be interpreted by man!

And then, the following finding in the waters of Bolabog, might be a balancing act between nature and man-art!

Time doesn’t matter for nature. What is a year or two, or even a hundred a thousand years? We don’t know how long this slipper was submerged in the waters of Bolabog and why the shells found it so attractive to settle on it.

It gives us a glimpse, of what nature is capable of and that after our short and devastating appearance on this planet, nature should handle our waste in a most original and tasteful manner!

Kind of Different

White Beach is sold out and lined up with big hotel resorts and restaurant businesses. Mostly unispiring concret buildings, andvancing as far as they can to the beachfront (not to waste any money!) Terms likes small, cosy or restraint are not in the vocabulary of big companies or investors.

So, the cafe Zucchero seems to be an exception worth to mention.

It’s small and cosy and painted in happy caribean colours. It stands out.

Also the coffee is not so bad. The cakes – you have to decide for yourself!

BIG WINDS IN ADVANCED SEASON

Unexpected strong winds blew yesterday (~ 25 knots) and today (~ 25 – 19 knots). Yesterday “sunny side down” today “sunny side up!” It’s still cool for this time of the year. Air 26°, water not over 22°C. With 9m² I was occasionally overpowered. My friend was using 5m² having much fun. Average 10 kites in the water. Tide at 11 am at a comfortable 1.1m rising to 1.5 til 3 pm. Incredible white, flat wave bases inside the reef.

Beach very dirty. This is the better looking part.
