Thursday doors.

Its Thursday again and one of my favorites days as I get to participate in Norms Thursday door challange and this week I have a blend of old doors for you from the East Indian trading company located in Hoorn, Netherlands. This is history when it is the best.Enjoy.

These are their warehouses locate din town. 1606 is the year on these buildings.IMG_9502IMG_9504

The buildings here below are the east Indian company warehouses down in the inner harbor. So many small icons, decorations and signs on the house. Notice how many small doors all over the fasade.  One is from 1606 and one house from 1618.IMG_9541IMG_9538

Connections

There is something about water that connects…..

Baking while travel

I love my baking and while travel on the canals it is perfect to make a cake that’s ready when you come into port. yesterday I made a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for the coffee together with our friends. It was a success 🙂 I also tried another frosting with some green color but I think that one got yo sweet so i used the lovely cream cheese frosting instead.

A normal Wednesday

This is just a normal Wednesday to me. On the waterways again. 🙂

 

Landcape

The Dutch landscape is flat, flat and again flat. I get amazed every time I go through these tiny canals in the middle of the fields, and this early morning gliding through the flat landscape and only us and the cows awake.

Canal ways

There are canal ways like no other where in the world in The Netherlands. We are discovering new ways every time. We are going to explore Friesland for a while now. Friesland is a province in the  north of the Netherlands with Leeuwarden as capital. It wa s a lovely summer day today and so warm and nice, the very first real summer day of the year. Jackets are off! 🙂

Dogs onboard

My crew has grown and I am so happy to have these two guys on board. 🙂

Breakfast time

What breakfast do you do on board?  I love my coffee and husband his tea.

Fresh oranges so we can press juice is a must on board for us.

Harbourmaster no 1

You know that either you done something stupid or you are awesome if the harbour master shows up in your home 🙂 We are just awesome and Arnold is a great guy who always are helpful so of course we have become good friends. Look how Happy Dan gets when he arrives. That means also that we are going to drink a lot of coffee. I thought I was a coffee junkie but you never met Arnold then. 🙂

 

The harbour master Arnold came on a visit. Many cups were to be drank. coffee

The sea…

IMG_6738At a distant shore I saw the ship, sailing in the wind with destination unknown

I see it sail, it starts to shrink into the distant horizon fading away,

where does she go, she lost in sight, you see her again be sure about that

the ocean is powerful she rolling along, the fishermen looks at it like he will never she her again.
