Another year older

I have earnt another candle on my cake. If I earn many more, I'll start to lose count, I reckon! Decided to have a day out as it's been a tough year what with Covid. I've missed having days out! Both hubby and my Birthdays are in September, so unless it's a big one, we usually take it in turns and have a joint celebration. Usually a day out followed by a nice meal in a restaurant. We often go to Efteling actually. I just love it. I feel like a big kid there. But it was looking like it would be busy, and that's just not my cup of tea, queueing for an hour plus per ride. There has been a smaller but similar fairytale theme park on my list of places to visit one day. That park was Sprookjeswonderland in Enkhuizen.

Of course, I expected it to be a lot smaller than Efteling, and without the many rides. But I had hoped the fairytale forest would be good. It was, but I had slightly higher hopes to be honest. However, I think it's an awesome park for little ones. Just not so great for grown ups! Especially not ones with as many candles on their cake as I have! (we won't get in to hubby's, he finds it a bit of a touchy subject!). Having said that, we still had fun. It was quiet, and nobody seemed to notice we didn't have kids, so I still felt a bit like a big kid. Only not like I do at Efteling! The fairytale forest wasn't bad. The rides, however, really were only for little ones, but I expected that. Of course I managed to get a few photos:

My real treat was after leaving the park when we headed off to explore the nearby harbour at Enkhuizen. We walked all around the harbour and along the walls.

We spent a very pleasant end to the Sunday afternoon here., before settling down for a cozy meal in one of the many restaurants. Our furry companion (Shih Tzu) approved of that too! Finally we were treated to a beautiful sunset before heading home.
