An awesome tribute! Thanks for sharing it. My Air Force husband lived near Aachen for two years (I visited often!!) and we spent a week up on the island of Texel last summer. LOVED IT!! We miss Germany and the Netherlands very much. I'm afraid our dogs get more than just carrots here, too, but we try to limit their people food to vegetables. Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!! Happy 2009!

Wonderful for the theme hope. I think many of the areas in Europe were filled with hope as they were freed from their oppression during the second world war.

A nice tribute...and a beautiful sculpture. It must be something to see the surf envelope it when the tide is high.
