Friday.

 

 

A few weeks ago we visited Volendam and Marken. I have a few more photo’s I want to show here.

The statue is of an old fisherman in Volendam. It sits right at the harbor. People love to sit next to him.

The weather was beautiful with only blue skies.

In Marken en Volendam ben ik nog nooit geweest, het zou er toch eens van moeten komen. Ik hou alleen niet zo van vis, misschien is dat wel de reden ;-).

Fijne avond! Lieve groet, Ingrid

I love a harbor city. The fisherman in the statue looks so patient! I guess the real ones usually have to be.

bellybytes said...

Aah. Thank you for reminding me of my own visit to these beautiful towns. I too had a photo with the bronze old man.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Such fascinating views of this lovely setting. And brilliant sunshine and blue skies as a bonus. And love the photo featuring a variety of fence styles.

Ja zo'n beeld op een bank nodigt uit om er naast te zitten, een echte Volendammer visser zo te zien.

Willy said...

Mijn voorkeur gaat uit naar Marken. De visser van Volendam is ook wel een leukerd. Fijn weekend, lieve groet

Irene said...

Lovely shots from Volendam! So nice to see (I was just a little girl when I visited and don't remember much).

Groetjes Irene

Love the statue and your photos!

Mooie serie weer, Riet.
In fotografisch opzicht is zo'n strakblauwe lucht niet echt interessant, maar tijdens zo'n uitstapje is het toch wel erg lekker.
Maak er een mooi weekend van.

You covered all the blogs very well. I am sure the fisherman had a bad day with that look.

Lieve Riet,

Mooie foto's van Marken en Volendam! Wij waren van plan om er op de terugweg vanuit Bergen een kijkje te nemen, maar het is er jammer genoeg niet van gekomen.

Gezellig dat wij elkaar zondag weer zien Riet! Tot dan!

We have pictures of my son sitting next to that statue! We went to this area when we visited the Netherlands a couple of years ago. Thanks for bringing me back there!

Jeanne said...

Hello Riet, I am happy to see your always wonderful photos today. The statue has so much expression and I love the lily photo too. What lovely places to visit.

I adore your photos on your sidebar of your handsome grandson and precious granddaughters. Our grands are a blessing for sure.

Wishing you happy days.
xo, Jeanne
