End of June, harbour in Oudeschild on Texel… A lonely glove near the docks…
Over a week ago, we had a weekend off on Texel, one of the islands laying from east to west to the north of the Netherlands. It was so nice to be back here again, after such a long time. During the evening we were on the beach near the lighthouse, and tried to catch the beams of lights as they turned and turned across the landscape. In the end we ended up with some decent shots, with this one being one of the best ones.
Yesterday we were talking about zoo’s… It has been a while since we been to one… These photos are from a visit to the Apenheul, Apeldoorn, where smaller monkeys are walking in between visitors, climb on your shoulders, and if you are not careful, steal stuff from your bag… This orangutan was just observing… Not us watching the animals, but also this fellow was watching us as we walked by… We should visit a zoo again sometime soon!
A number of years ago, a wonderful weekend on Capri, Italy… Walking around the island, ending up at the harbour. The weather was warm and sunny, we ate at wonderful restaurants, great food, and wines… Amazed at the size of the many yachts in the harbour and around the island… And then what looked like a mafia wedding, with a large number of men, dressed in black, with sunglasses and earpieces… What a wonderful but also strand weekend it was…
Last spring we spend a long weekend in Zeeland, on the southwest coast. Beautiful weather, all weekend, and we had lots of fun with friends and family. Of course we had to show our friends from abroad the Delta Works, and the longest bridge in the Netherlands, the Zeeland Bridge.
