Outdoor and Watery Wednesday.

Last week we went for an errand in an older part of our little town when we saw this beautiful little old dike-house. Very old as it was built in the year 1815 but it still looked so perfect.
 I must have seen it before but then I was not into photographing I think. I had my camera with me so here are my photo’s for Outdoor Wednesday .http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/

Please click to enlarge photo's.
There are actually two families living here, so separate houses.

You have to go down the dike to get to the front door. See the steps?

As you can see there is an upstairs and a downstairs in these little houses by the steps on the side of the house. The garden is downstairs and maybe there was a stable once. 

Watery Wednesday.

Last night I received this photo of my granddaughter Megan on her first waterski lesson. I think she did real well.
She said she had so much fun on summer water camp.

Een droomplekje met een droomhuisje...het ziet er zo mooi uit. Ik word dan meteen benieuwd naar hoe het binnen is ingericht!

Een fijne avond Riet! Lieve groet, Ingrid

Just look at your precious little granddaughter. How brave!

I also love the sweet dike house. Reminds me of the poem....the leak in the dike...!

What a lovely house, it's nice to see that it has been well cared for through the years.

Your granddaughter looks like she is having a wonderful time.

Ha Riet,
Wat een leuk huisje...ik dacht dat mijn dijkhuisje klein was, maar deze delen ze zelfs met zn 2en!
Mag ik vragen waar het is, want wij wandelen graag langs dijken en polders...

The cottage is so cute. You must ask your granddaughter how her arms are, I recall my daughter saying when she learnt to waterski it was her arms that hurt the most!

These must be heritage houses. It would be interesting to see inside.
Nice pictures, Riet.

Hi Riet, the Dike houses are so charming. I can't believe they were built in 1815. Amazing. Great photos too.

Love the waterskiing photo of your granddaughter. I remember learning to waterski when I was in my 20's. It was hard but I did finally learned to ski on one ski and loved it for many years. I grew up in Miami, FL. where water sports were the thing to do. I'm glad your granddaughter is enjoying camp.

Hugs, Jeanne
