Holiday in springtime

Queen's day
A few days free from work, so we went to our chalet on the Veluwe. Last thursday (30 april) it was Queen's Day (Koninginnedag). A day with celebrations, markets, concerts etc. etc, also a public holiday in the Netherlands, everything is coloured in orange. Queen's day 2009 ended unexpected dramatically with an attack on the Royal Family, several people got killed. So we spend some time in front of the TV.

As you can see on the picture Paco likes to take a mud-bath during his walks. Keeps his skin soft and shiny ; ), and they're free.

We visited the sand-sculptures in Garderen, very impressing you can see on the pictures in my webalbum. The theme is the castles of Gelderland.

Spotting wild boars

Close to our summerhouse is a place where you can spot wild boars (wilde zwijnen), most of the time there is nothing to see but this time we were lucky.

I am happy that I didn't see the wild boars. And I cannot find a webalbum with sand sculptures - where should I look?
