St Nicolas and his black companion
more participants here
Yesterday was St. Nicolaus day, very much celebrated in the Netherlands, even more than Christmas, but not so well known or celebrated in other countries, except the Germans.
So to make the Dutch guests happy there was St. Nicolas with his companion Farmhand Rupert or Servant Rupert and greeted the guests. Afterwards he went from table to table and asked if we had been good the whole year apparently we all were, because he was content with our behaviour. He asked me to get up and make this picture of us.
St Nicolaus and me
We play Scrabble
and our place on the beach
It is still very windy and we hide behind our windscreens. But it is warm and we can swim, only getting out of the water is a little cold !
