Looking through the glass.

I have a new pet, he lives outside at my window. He must like it here watching me in the kitchen for weeks now. As long as he stays outside, I don't mind and say hello to him through the glass.

I like to go to lectures of writers, it is interesting to see and hear them talking about their books and lives. This is Jacques Klöters.

And this is his book "Living forward, understanding afterwards"

And I got his signature in my book!

Open Monuments Day

At Open Monuments Day we visited a special residential building in our home city Almere. This was an experimental area "the Fantasy" where people in 1982 were allowed to built their own house without all the regulations.

It was a bit difficult to make a complete photo as it was situated all in the green garden.

The living room upstairs.

With a magnificent view at the skyline of Almere City and the Weerwater.

There was a "Tiny House"aside of the main house where guest could stay

Triathlon (2)

Another few pictures of the Triathlon of last Saturday. Here are the women.

He seems not one of the youngest to me.

The visible images of the tour.

These runners could hardly run anymore, they walked, but they still had some kilometers to go, a few rounds around a lake....

Visiting the Triathlon Challenge in Almere I noticed these two women opposite me.

They were obviously waiting for a relative to pass by at the marathon.

Yeah! there he is!
A Triathlon is a hell of a challenge with 4 km swim, 180 km cycling and a marathon of 42 km. All after each other in one day. The weather was a challenge too, heavy rains all day long.

Wind vane

Looking through the window of a new opened department store "Hudson's Bay" in Amsterdam, I watched this wind vane at another building.

It is an old ship. Linking to "Skywatch Friday"
