Holiday's are over

We had a lovely week over at the sea in Domburg. We even got some sunburn ! Yeah really! Who would have thought that considering the weather we had over here the last couple of weeks ! We really were quite lucky in the amounts of rain we had, the rest of the country had some serious problems in having huge amounts falling in a short period of time. WE had some nice sunny periods in which we headed off to the beach !
So, no complaints about the weather from me !

Taken when the tide was low. These rows of poles are for the protection of the beach, they brake the waves so the sea doesn't damage the beach too much .

Shells are scattered in the sand......

And we had some lovely sunsets....

I even managed to do some knitting. Pictures will follow soon, but I am having some problems with my camera and I am out to buy a new one today.

I was asked to give some more details about our new horse, so if you would like to know more about him , read on.

His name is SouSou and he is a seven year old gelding. He is about 5.3 feet tall ( 1.63 m ) measured at the withers. His color is black, but he turns brown in summers. We don't know exactly what kind of breed he is ( he doesn't have a pedigree) but we think he is mostly a breed from the Netherlands that is called KWPN. The daughters mostly ride dressage with him and youngest daughter also loves to jump, which he really seems to like ! He is a very sweet natured horse, not nervous at all. That is the main reason we chose him because he will have to participate in our rather hectic traffic if we take him out for a ride.

And he is a very handsome fellow offcourse !

Thanks for telling about SouSou. He sounds like what I'm looking for for the grandgirls. Appreciate your lovely holiday pictures. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for your comment on my blog. We stopped at some lovely towns on the way to Amsterdam; you're definitely right about their charm. I guess all capital cities are the same - I'm not keen on London either!

Your beach photos are beautiful, I wish I'd taken more shots when we were driving by the North Sea.

Ah, thanks for the info on SouSou. I thought he looked like a jumper. Do your daughters also show? I always wanted to learn dressage but only manage to take classes one autumn. I loved it. (sigh)

Lovely beach pictures.
