We finally reach the Island of Terschelling. One of the five inhabited Dutch Wadden (or Frisian) Islands situated on the northern coast of the Netherlands.
Once know for its fishing community it now boasts agriculture and increasingly tourism as a main economy with its 30k of sandy beaches and the famous Oerol summer festival. More importantly though it boasts one of the most important nature reserves in northwest Europe. The Wadden sea (one of the largest wetlands in the world) has now been added to the World Heritage list. But enough already go to the official sites to brush up on plant and animal species here and Terschelling information.
Our stay here was on the boat ‘Ortolan’ 1897 docked in West Terschelling for 3 days. Three people to a cabin it didn’t feel that cramped. Probably due to the well stocked communal birth.
Keeping up with the Kobo town impromtu performances we did a 15 minute set aboard the ‘Noord Star’ ship during their evening caberat.
We had two great gigs on the island. One at close to midnight, the other during the day.
