Monday, Tuesday.


Last week on a beautiful sunny day we went to visit  family in an other part of the country, North Holland.
Here a little impression of what we saw on our way. Dutch countryside.
The deer were in a little park near their home in Alkmaar. The farm( on the left) with the pointed roof is typical for that part of the country. The very old house on the right has what we call a step-roof

Je hebt mooie Hollandse foto's gemaakt, Riet. Nederland biedt veel mooie plekjes, daar ben ik inmiddels wel achter.

Ik wens je een fijne week! Liefs, Ingrid

Oh what a beautiful day trip! That step house is so charming -- it looks like something out of a fairy tale. Your whole country seems charming to me.

Lovely views of the countryside Riet. It looks like spring is starting to show there. Enjoy!

Hannah said...

Lovely countryside, Riet. It's interesting to view the deer when they are not intent on getting away as fast as possible. The Step roof is quite ornate.

Hi Riet,
Your photos of the countryside are wonderful! Looks like Spring is well on its way where you live. We still have a lot of snow and very cold temperatures. It was -15 Celsius when I got up this morning. Brrr, way too cold for this time of year.

Blessings,
Sandi

Heerlijke beelden lieve Rietje,
en wat hebben we een aantal
SUPER mooie dagen gehad hé. Het
was zelfs in de zon gewoon
aangenaam warm.

Prachtige collage foto's die
je verzamelde in Noord Holland.
Het begint er toch werkelijk
op te lijken dat de winter
verledentijd is, HEERLIJK!!!

En nu maar hopen op een mooi
jaar met veel zon en warmte.

Geniet van een fijne week,

Veel liefs,
Josephine

Wish I could have visited Holland in my younger days. It has so much beauty to share.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I love to see your countryside views when you take a trip, Riet. It looks very beautiful there!

Valerie said...

A lovely collage, Riet. I will be visiting North Holland very briefly in a couple of weeks, en route to the UK, so I do appreciate the foretaste of what's to come!

That house with the stepped roof seems so typically Dutch to me. A beautiful day for a trip.

Het ziet er allemaal prachtig uit onder die strakblauwe lucht, Riet.

Prachtige lentefoto's. Het regent en waait hier nu behoorlijk, wat een verschil met vorige week. Lieve groet,

Madelief said...

Mooie foto's Riet! Het lijkt wel alsof jullie in Broek in Waterland zijn geweest of de Zaansche Schans. Mooi al die houten huizen! Ik ben er al een tijdje niet geweest. Een prachtig stukje Nederland.

Een fijne avond!

Liefs Madelief x
