We are enjoying the wonderful weather at this moment! We hope you too. We still have color in the garden, especially our mimosa is in full bloom at the moment, we have already painted outside because of the beautiful weather and we diligently test our evening walks for the coming summer season. We see something different around us every time.
23 february 2019, The largest springtide of the year 2019 in Port du Bec
On Dutch websites we saw this week pictures of the largest full moon of this year (Snow Moon). Those around us, oyster farmers and cockle fishers, will not turn hot or cold from a picture of this moon, but of the fact that it was also the largest springtide of the year. Lots of people on the Passage du Gois of course and the difference between low and high tide was clearly noticeable in Port du Bec, where it was full with oysterfarmer tractors. A coefficient of 115. There are this year only 29 days with a coefficient of over 100. We were so busy with the preparations for the summer season, that we have not even been to the Passage du Gois to fish razorclams.
23 February 2019, Absolutely wonderful sunny weather end of February 2019
We have absolutely wonderful sunny weather at the moment We therefore had a useful week. We painted outside and cleaned walls with the pressure cleaner. Also got some work done on the sewing machine. A test for a new table d’hote dish, worked out a little less succesful. It did not look good and hung together from melted cheese (but nevertheless tasted delicious!). Because of the heat the tree frogs also appear again. We are not the onlyones busy. Even at the dike behind us, they are already progressing pretty good. We are curious about the end result.
