WEEKLY WINNERS


More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

Last week I went to Kamperland which is a small town of 1940 inhabitants in the Dutch province of Zeeland. I was invited by my friend (see post below) which I hadn't seen for two years.

They had bought a little fisherhouse in the 70th renovated and modernized and it has become this little jewel.



from the street on one side



and the other side in range with the same kind of cute little fisher houses, now mostly owned as holiday homes. There are no fishermen anymore.



this is the view out of the garden. In warmer seasons there are sheeps and horses browsing here.



A quite strange bush



and other little houses



Here we are standing at the entrance door.

After lunch, we made a big walk along the sea and in the dunes







The restaurant which is very busy in summertime, is closed now of course





the long beach empty





The lonely man was my friend's husband who shot me while I was shooting him ! But we are both still alive !



for your information

What a beautiful spot! And how wonderful that you and your friend could spend some time.
My daughter mentioned to me that she may have business in Brussels this year. I told her I would go with her so I can visit with you! (Keep your fingers crossed that my eye heals well!)

I enjoyed with your recents posts. I dreamt too!

I wouldn´t mind to be adopted by a mother like you ...

Anyway, I´m glad that at least there are people out there (or an extension of myself) Enjoying. Thanks for sharing the pics.

Love.

I've never heard of the place but it looks ever so peaceful. I'll need to look on the map, I'd love to go there sometime. It reminds me how terribly cluttered and spoiled our Belgian coastline is.

Lovely shots! My favorite is the very last one - there is something so lovely about that - the beach, the sky, the one lonely man w/ footsteps leading out to him. Very nice.

I love empty beaches. Great shots.

I absolutely LOVE an empty beach! It almost NEVER happens here... but when I can have a beach all to myself! Ohhhhhhh Gattina! THAT is heaven! They have fixed their little cottage up nicely too!

You look great despite the winter weather!
