Shells

Around noon we went by bike to the town of Monster. Close to the beach I led my family on a detour into the dunes; I wanted to show Adam and Alice where as a child I had been looking for fossils together with my brother Marco.

As I have found trilobite fossils in those rocks the fossils found must be between 521 and 251.9 millions of years old!

After exploring for a while we went to the beach. But when we arrived we all were hungry and thirsty so we went first for a snack and returned to the beach refreshed a little later.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001)

An orphaned boy enrolls in a school of wizardry, where he learns the truth about himself, his family and the terrible evil that haunts the magical world.

In the evening we watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001). I give this movie a 7 out of 10.
