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.
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.
It was time for Regatta this weekend for Laser in Hoorn and it was a busy marina. As we are waiting on a spare part to arrive we have a great spot in the marina and it was so fun to see the sailors prepare and set sail out on the lake, they are really skill full I must say even though i still think it looks funny when grown up men and women are in these small boats as this was something we used to do as kid to learn how to sail. But it is fun and I understand why they do it. People from all over Europe was here to try and take the trophy. Let the best man or woman win! 🙂
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! 🙂
