Cromer Visit with Jana, Phillip, Tobias & Stefan

Our friends from The Netherlands, who have children the same age as our kids (3 & 5) came for a long weekend visit.  So for their first day, we stayed local and took a long walk along up along the golf course to the Lighthouse and then down along the beach into Cromer.

After some stops to find a replacement pair of pants for Stefan (as his were wet from the sea) we stopped for a couple beers and some chips with garlic mayo on the deck at The Rocket Cafe.  Oh and Soren enjoyed a cake – Victoria Sponge.

A short visit to the Henry Blogg Museum downstairs….


Afterwards, we walked over to the Cromer Pier to see the Lifeboat.  While there, the boys were in heaven with the cement mixer and workers who were doing some repairs.  It was really cute too when Stefen was on the ground looking through the cracks at the water.

As we walked home, we stopped off for some Zipline fun.  The boys were having a lot of fun and for the first time, Maebh tried it too.  Of course, she had a slow ride but like the rock climbing wall, she’s been trying new things.

What a great time with our friends… the boys are such good pals, even though there is limited conversation due to languages  – they speak Dutch and Czech and ours only English with a little understanding of Dutch).

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
