Outdoor and Blue Monday.


Today I have one mosaic for both memes.

I have to tell you that we sold our house last Friday  and we will be moving in about three weeks time. So busy times ahead but we are so happy. Also in this country the housing market is slow so we are the lucky ones. If I am slow in visiting I apologize for that. I will do my best.

Weekend reflections.


Weekend reflections is hosted by James from NewTown Area Photo.

First of all I want to say I am doing a happy dance as we sold our house today. I have not being commenting on everybodies blog quickly enough  for what I want to apologize. Times were hectic now and then. We will be moving out  in a few weeks time so I will not be posting and commenting as much as I want to. I hope that in our new home we will be able to get the computer working soon enough.

This picture I made in a little park near our home.

Mosaic and Blue Monday.


Two weeks ago we visited our family in the beautiful old  city of Alkmaar, THE cheesecity  in the Netherlands. I am sure people who visited Holland have visited the cheesemarket. Thousands of tourists come to see the cheesemarket in the summer. On my few pictures you can see the cheesebearers who transport the cheeses from the markets to the buyers. It is fun to watch them walking .  More pictures I made when walking through the beautiful center of the city, wooden shoes and tulips on the market, the canals with the tourist boats and the world famous street organ  with its music. I will try to get some streetorgan music on my blog for today. I made many more photo's that day so these next few days I wil post more from Alkmaar with its beautiful old buildings, canals and narrow streets.

For Blue Monday more photo's I took in Alkmaar while touring through the canals in an open tourist boat.

2010-07-30 alkmaar6

As you can see some bridges open to let the boats pass by but some bridges don't open so the boat goes under the bridges. This is so much fun because every time we got to sail under the bridges we had to bend our heads otherwise we would hit our heads.You can see how low they are on the right bottom picture. And there were about 20 of them.

Mosaic and Blue Monday


Last week we have been away for a few days visiting family and seeing some of the sights in a different part of the country. First we visited the Zaanse Schans, a museum village on the river Zaan. I start with wooden shoes from the wooden shoes factory. You can see some of the many,many different ones. Also behind glass some beautiful antique clogs, even pairs for brides, Imagine wearing these on your wedding day. I made lots of pictures on our trip so these following days I will show a lot of different sights.
