Got back this afternoon from our trip to the island of Rügen in the Baltic, off the north coast of Germany. Travelled on the Newcastle-Ijmuiden ferry then drove across the Netherlands and Germany. The most sunny photos have been selected!

First the ferry trip from Newcastle to Ijmuiden and a drive across the north of Germany, staying in various little hotels:

At our holiday house and in Stralsund, over the bridge on the mainland:

Journey back across Germany, into the Netherlands, and back to the ferry at Ijmuiden:
