Low levels of inspiration today. So today’s offering is a selection of photographs taken from Dutch cycling paths.
Unusual for it to be so still in the Netherlands. The almost constant wind makes up for the lack of hills. This was taken on the way to Moerkapelle.
Rippled water is the norm.
Looking down one of the canals in Utrecht.
Sheep are used to keep the grass short. This one wasn’t bothered by bicycles passing by.
Elvis lives in Harmelen.
The Drie Molens (Three Mills) in Leidschendam. They were built around 1672 to pump out excess groundwater resulting from extensive peat cutting. These mills now run once a month, on a Saturday.
Idyllic in Woerden.
More wildlife along the canal in Barwoutswaarder.
This sculpture is on the outskirts of Zoetermeer.
Water management Dutch style. The canal in the foreground is about ten feet above the one leading off into the distance.
One rogue in a sea of yellow.
Appelgebak met slagroom en koffie verkeerd (apple pie with cream and “wrong coffee”).
Koffie verkeerd is a typical Dutch way of consuming coffee: half automatic drip coffee and half warm milk. It’s called “wrong” because traditionally coffee only contains a “wolkje“, a small cloud, of milk.
The standard post-ride order at the koffiehuis.
