The German Eastfrian islands from the sky/ Die Ostfriesischen Inseln vom Himmel gesehen

 
This is one lonely tiny island between the islands Juist and Borkum in the WaddenSea.

 

















While enjoying the carfree island Juist 2 weeks ago we have decided to visit all German Eastfrisian islands (Borkum, Juist, Norderney, Baltrum, Langeooge, Spiekeroog, Wangeroog). And we did this in one hour!  How do you wonder? By plane, we had a sightseeing flight over all these beautiful islands and enjoyed the fantastic green-blue-grey colours the Wadden Sea offers! I hope you have fun while checking my pictures:-)
 
The seals were having fun sunbathing themselves.
 
It was sunny and very busy on water: a lot of boats around the island Spiekeroog above.

On the picture above one sees the landing line on island Juist and the island Norderney behind it...

Amazing photos. Makes me think of God using a big stick to draw in the sae bed, making swirling sand and islands.
