After walking along the shore, I went back home and saw this house. It is just behind the dunes in a quiet area. I am told that these houses were build after the second world war for the people from Indonesia who arrived in the Netherlands. Then they were very cheap but know these houses are worth a lot of money!

I would love to live in a house like that although they are not that big. There was one for sale but I don't know what the asking price is. There is another house for sale in that area but not as beautiful as this one and it had an asking price of EUR 850.000,00!

Well, there's nothing wrong with dreaming, is there. Meanwhile I am just as happy in our home!

Have a great weekend!

Autumn at the beach

What's so great about living in the Netherlands is that you get to experience every season. I personally love autumn because the trees and the leaves get a beautiful colour, it is getting dark earlier and you want to crawl under a blanket and watch a movie.

Today I went out to walk around and went to the beach. Walking distance, the beach is about 20 minutes from our house. It was a beautiful day and the sun really tried to shine but there were a lot of clouds trying to prevent it!

In the first picture you can see a sign of a lion. That's is a lion designed by Dick Bruna who is the creator of Miffy. These signs are along the shore so that on busy beachdays, the parents choose a spot nearby a cartoonsign so that the children don't get lost because they can recongize the sign. Cleverly done, right?

Now I am ready for a cup of tea, to crawl under a blanket and watch a movie. For today I have chosen Remember Me.
