It's been very hard to pull Jess out of her room on this vacation. She will under no circumstances go on the beach. The weather has mostly been awful. I have only had success driving her around to look at the horses and sheep, and shopping. Today I took her to ecomare. It's a very small center that takes in wounded sea lions. They have a few fish tanks. Jess was happy there for about one hour. I then sat in the car with her while Nicole and Philip spent one more hour looking around. That's fine, I had a book with me. When Juergen took the kids to the beach, I drove Jess to the other end of the Island to buy gas for the car, and food for dinner. She walked through a garden center with me. They had some really nice things (the Dutch love gardening). I know we won't have room in the car, so I only bought a new toy for our dog Mickey. I did buy 5 different types of tulip bulbs today at another store. 50 of one sort that's pink and green tulip bulb and 5 each of 4 other sorts. All unusual, and beautiful. My challenge is finding the room to put the bulbs. My small garden is over full.
