Summer joy

The weather was so nice on Sunday that really in the middle of nowhere people showed up to dive into the water.

View from the new walking and biking bridge over the "Hoge Vaart" that had just opened last week.

The bridge even has an elevator for cyclists and walkers but for whom and what because the first floor doesn't connect to anything except a bus stop and there's no parking or connecting bike lane below either. Definitely needs to be filled in in the future.

At the Flea market


Yesterday was the official opening of the new Waterlooplein Flea Market with fashion shows of 2nd hand clothing and musical performances. Attracted a lot of audience and it was very nice to look around again. I am now up to date again on the latest trends in tattoos.

Wouldn't take one myself but the youth clearly have less of a problem with it. You can also look on Biebkriebels blog here.

Strange relations

 I knew that cormorants sailed with a boat but herons that is the first time for me. Seen the day before yesterday in the "Nieuwe Keizersgracht". (PS Header is a slipway in the harbor of Urk)

Cable car terminus

 In a remote corner of the Floriade Almere sits the end station of the cable car across the grounds . The glass facade reflects the opposite exit of the A6 on the other side of the fence. One for Weekend Street/Reflections here.

The Almere Wool Union on the Floriade

Consisting of thousands of woolen patches, colored with natural dyes, this all-seeing eye looks out into the world. 

 On the inside, we are surprised by a wall of weck bottles all filled with natural dyes (made by members of the Wool Union) through which the light falls beautifully. 
The Almeerse Wolunie processes wool from Almeerse sheep (about 250 sheep with about 5 kilos of wool each) into specially designed products (e.g. scarf, hat or bag). 
Participants of the Wolunie help with the processing of the raw wool: washing, carding, dyeing, felting, spinning and then knitting or crocheting. Of course they get to keep the product at the end of the process! A unique concept in which the wool of Almere is processed into a beautiful product with the help of Almere people.One for Sami's Colourful World here.

On to the order of business.

 I had forgotten about this one yesterday but everyone was in high spirits after 2 years of abstaining from King's Day.

The over neighbors decided to get a dormer.

Within an hour and a half, it was done. One for Skywatch Friday here.

Yesterday Kings Day

 We are ready. Bring it on.

For children, it's still the most fun.

And maybe you'll make the find of a lifetime.
