drove the car to Arkel yesterday, for two reasons mainly: change of tires (from summer to winter) and the yearly mandatory check-up, otherwise known as APK. Arkel's a nearby village, from our front door to the garage is a good 10 kilometres; piece of cake for us hikers, so after the drive, Django and I walked back home, basking in the glorious sunshine
we had to cross several bridges.....
a couple of roads, dikes, bicycle paths and even a golf terrain...
luckily for us there are a few off-the-road tracks for us to follow, often it was more a case of me following him, as Django would be running back and forth, back and forth, tirelessly
there were surprisingly few other people and/or dogs during the entire walk, I say surprising because the weather was superb; we did however bump into a friend who is the happy owner of two lovely border terriers; I immediately fell in love and as luck would have it, one of her dogs could even be pregnant; depending on how many puppies she might be carrying, we could possibly soon have two dogs instead of just the big black one! quite exciting
for him everything was new and therefore a big adventure, well worth inspecting
gate's still here
today we walked back to the car, the weather was still very nice, as was the walk; again hardly any other people or dogs along the foot path, although he definitely smelled something interesting here
half a year ago I made the same walk on my own, link here having Django accompany me is a lot more fun; have gone back to the post with the same walk and lo & behold, a print with a black dog, this was before Django's arrival, he must have been on my mind even then
Hi, I'm an artist.

the walking is the best part of living here, any season, any weather, although the rains can be a bit of a drag.....however, as we say over here 'yer not made of sugar, so a little rain won't melt yer"
I envy your far horizons and empty spaces, all things have some cost, duh - she said in a kind but determined tone -
hi Liz, I haven't heard of her, must google immediately! I like the rivers and the idea of the sea close by as they bring a sense of space and light and they're always changing; I'm not a 'water-person' though, firmly rooted in the earth gazing from the shores at the watery surfaces
and Dj often....as if he was always
there, waiting till you needed him.
And it's that same energy with Tay,

not sure what kind of dog this new
one might be? ???????
And thank you Saskia for enabling this connection
Nina : gewelgid filmpje erbij !!!
ja Els, die rivieren zijn prachtig en heerlijk voor mij als landrot om toch in de buurt te hebben, al was het maar zodat Django af en toe een frisse duik kan nemen.
hi Mo, very watery (she sighs...) and Green
morning Jan, when cutting the lino I was thinking of Tungsten (of course), but once printed and being black, it became far more related to the new-dog-in-town
