Mother and child

We made a walk today along the Dutch coast in Groningen, along the river Eems near the Punt van Reide. There were lots of sheep with lambs on the dike, and Henri made this beautiful photo of this mother and her child. Isn't this sweet :)

Work in progress

The train station area in Assen has been a building site since 2016, but it is all going to be finished later this year. This photo was taken from the temporary bridge that takes train passengers to the other platforms...

...and this is the new roof construction from underneath.

No 11

From our walking path near Assen we noticed each nesting-box had its own street number.

.. the beautifully weathered roof tiles of this barn must have been the same colour of the ones on the farm.

Dutch Landrace goat

Our hiking route passed these Dutch Landrace goats (Nederlandse Landgeit). It's an original breed found in the Netherlands. They have long hair that can come in a few different shades of brown.

They seemed rather interested in us when we passed them, though stayed very friendly even when they realised we didn't bring anything to eat for them.
