Sylt bear


This Buddy Bear represents the German island of Sylt. It's located in the North Sea and is a very popular summer destination for well-heeled Germans. There's even a salad dressing named for the place (though I don't like it much). 

Today is a holiday in Germany and I spent most of it playing in a golf tournament. Unfortunately, it's back to the grind for me tomorrow, but at least this little break has made the week a bit shorter.

  6. Sylt means Jam in Swedish. Never been to the island but it's on my list.

  7. I love those bears! I also loved workday holidays when I had my nose to the grindstone - helped save my sanity.

  8. It was also a holiday by us in the Netherlands celebrating the liberation in the second world war. I wonder what the Germans are celebrating.
