Market day.

On Thursday it is Market day here in town. I usually go there to buy fresh fruit, vegetables . cheese fish and popatoes and of course flowers.

Yesterday was a lovely sunny day so I thought I'd take my camera and show some stalls . Everything looks so good when the sun shines, right?

Not spring yet.



Last week we for a couple of days went to the more eastern part of our country. On Monday the weather was sunny but rather cold.  We went for walks in the country and that was really nice.
But on Tuesday we had to go to the  city of Zutphen as I needed to go to a special shop. The weather had turned around, heavy storm and rain. We had planned to spend most of the day in Zutphen as it is the most beautiful old city you can imagine. That didn’t work. I almost got blown of my feet. But the shop was right in the middle of the old city so I could make a few pictures when I was there and it was dry about three minutes.So we went home.

I hope to go back there real soon.

This is the gate to a old poor peoples home founded in 1723. There is a lovely courtyard but it started to  rain and I ran back to the car.

St Walburgischurch founded in 1050. See the houses around it are also very old, and the streets so narrow.
Didn’t get to visit the church. But will get back there some day soon.

That beautiful house was built in 1549. Next to it a little alleyway going to the drogenapstoren.

A sunny day.


Last week we visited a lovely little old village more south in the country called Eersel. Not far from where I grew up and where we  went camping with our youthclub.
It was one of the first lovely sunny days this spring so it was wonderful to walk around and have lunch on a terrace. All these old houses are situated at the village square that is one of the nicest in the country.

All the houses at this village square are old but this one is the oldest. Built in 1669 and still looking so good.

Memory Lane.

 

 

Due to circumstances I didn’t make many pictures lately so I am going back to Memory lane.

A few years ago we visited England and one of the lovely places we visited was Cambridge situated on the river Cam. A  university city with beautiful buildings.

Have a look.

Skywatch Friday



It’s been a while since I was here but sometimes life gets in the way.
Also it has been a miserable winter with lots of rain and dark days. Not really something to make you feel happy.
But spring is coming , the weather is getting better and the days get longer.
We now and then did have some clear sunny days and that’s great for beautiful sunrises and sun downs.
I made lots of photo’s and I have a few here to show.

The days sometimes started with the red sun and sky. The other three are sun downs where the sun wanted to peak through the dark clouds.
Sometimes very spectacular.
