Monday, Tuesday.

Last week was a busy one but I do have some photo's to share'.





This was last Sunday when we visited friends in the country. It was a rainy dreary day as  you can see but I thought the sight from  their home was beautiful. So hazy.



Apart from the left top photo  I made these during a walk in the neighbourhood.





The little ones being fed.

The Kings birthday.

Last Monday it was our kings birthday. It is a public holiday in our country and it is celebrated with many festivities. In our city we have our yearly fair and freemarket. The freemarket used to be just for children to earn some money from selling the stuf they don't want any more. It grew to a hugh freemarket for everybody who wants to sell something .Many many people visit it and enjoy themselves. There is a lot to eat and drink of course and like every year we had beautiful sunny weather.
I made lots of photo's and I picked some to make a collage. From that collage I am going to pick a few which I thought were so funny or special.






Always on this special day some  bands and artists come to show the people a litte of their art.

Like these.



 these old guys playing  dixieland , my kind of music...


these colorfull people walking on stelts, don't know if that is the word.




and this couple  was hilarious.





kids having fun.




This group op ladies calling themselves the singing bathcaps, LOL
They had so much fun.



And another band with great music.





This guy had a good day. He had three little children in that box and had bought that little childrens bike and some toys for next to nothing. Good bargains always here on this day.


That's it.

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.
