Skywatch Friday

Yesterday I was at a picknick, celebrating a friend's birthday. This is how the bridge looks that leads to the park-entrance:
















It looked like it was going to rain but it stayed at dripping a bit for just a few minutes:

















Today we first went to the beach at IJmuiden (at the coast, not far from The hague).

Here you see my son and a friends' son playing:
















It was too darn hot so we decided to go to Ruigoord ("Roughplace", sort of a freeheaven for artists and the likes, not far from the country's capital and often compared to the Danish Christiania) for the start of the yearly "Landjuweel" (Landjewel)-festival.

There was lots to see but here's a small impression.

The local church-building:






















People at the start-sign (But you can't see the people playing drums behind these people) of the festival, a bit after eight in the evening:

















The place was (and usually is) packed with selfmade climbing-structures and art-objects made out of waste and other leftovers:
















Both in IJmuiden and Ruigoord we went for a swim. Salt water was met at the beach; sweet water was at the lake at the edge of Ruigoord. Sorry, no pictures of great looking women in bikini. Other sides can provide you with those...;-)

I liked your mixed bag of photos of what´s happening around there. Holland is a cool laid back place and I have always liked being there.
