House in the main street, behind the railway, seen from the park. In the park birds were fighting for crumbs from our icecream-horns.

Eating out on a warm Saturdayevening at Hotel de Brink in Dwingeloo

Brink, originally uploaded by XPeria2Day.

This food was 300.000 times better than the food we had at Hammingh, last week. And in the end the bill was the same, even though we had more items in Dwingeloo. So, Hammingh needs to step up a bit.

Just before ordering, which took a very long time. From our side. We just couldn't make a choice. Something big, something small, fish, meat, veggie?

Canto ostinato in the Groningen railwaystation

Canto, originally uploaded by XPeria2Day.

Simeon ten Holt's Canto ostinato for four piano's played in the hall of the Groningen main railwaystation. I had to miss the first half hour but the next hour and fourtyfive minutes were excellent anyway. I stood with my back to the main entry which provided a cool breeze whilst looking a the sunlit hall where four pianists played a marvelous version of Canto ostinato.

Chez Hammingh

Chez Hamming, originally uploaded by XPeria2Day.

Eating out in Garnwerd. Hammingh serves not the best meals ever (they're okay and standard meat/fish with slightly uninspired potato-variations and overcooked veggies) but they make up for that with the best location along the river Reitdiep on bicycle-distance from Groningen.

In the fresh morning light everything looks prettier. Even green towers in Winschoten.

Church in Oosterwijtwerd where we heard strange footsteps continually in the church as if someone was coming down the stairs forever.

Carpark in Veendam. It's free parking now. It costed more to collect the money than what was earned.

Reading a weblog. After yesterday's busy day, today I am doing some chores and reading some weblogs. Which is obviously not a chore.
