 When the heat is on, it is better to cyle than to walk.

We have nice bike paths without much traffic.

We pass the the travelling around flock of sheep (the lawnmowers ) who are looking for some shadow under the trees.

And the mechanical lawnmowers are also doing there work.

We reach the dike along the  Gooi lake.

The lake is used in summer by many "pleasure boats" as we call them, people who like to sail around just for fun.

Cat towel

Some time ago my daughter gave me a kitchen towel with these cats images.

Later on I noticed the cat footprints woven in the towel, so funny!

Almere is a city in progress and there are still popping up new neighbourhoods as here in "Nobelhorst".
This is a public primary school built out of wood.

Even the bicycle storage is made of wood.

There were tables with cultered vegetables and an insecthotel.

There was  a funny bridge to another school next door.

The other school, in our country we always have a public school and a school with the bible, here close to each other.

Monday Mural

 I saw someone had decorated his house in my neighbourhood with a mural!

Looks  like a scene in Greece I think with the steps and white painted houses. Linking to "Monday Mural"

 We were cycling last week and taking a rest for a moment on a bench along the cycling path. When I looked to the right I felt watched by this tree!  He looked at me a bit disapprovingly! What did I do wrong?

 The European football league was delayed last year due to Corona but now it will be on again. Our neighbourhood has turned orange again, to support the Dutch team.

The colours of our flag in an original way.

In the village Vreeland this remembrance stone stood on the "anniversary lane" along the river Vecht. It was placed to celebrate the existance of  50 years Kingdom of the Netherlands.

 The good days in the Westerparc in Amsterdam in June 2019.

When I look outside I see  now the same sunshine shining as three years ago.

Hope we get a nice sunny warm summer again. Linking to "Our World Tuesday"

 A Capricorn I saw in the Amsterdam Zoo from the archives of 2018. I haven't been there for more than  a year now. The Zoo was closed  for public and I read that the animals missed  the visitors too it was very quiet without people around. Linking to "Saturday's Critters"
