After an initial attempt where they mostly just demolished the field, now they are back. The field is frozen and it looks like there is no obvious damage. Apart for the digging of course.

It looks like the day is preparing for the possibility of northern lights tonight. If only the clouds disappear more...

Along the van Starkenborghcanal the skies are clearer than here in Reitdiephaven
Around the sugar factory in Hoogkerk it is less wet than here in Reitdiephaven.

Through the twigs the lake looks darker than in real life.
Less inviting idea now with the high water, rain and heavy wind.

Whatever the name or species, it was sitting in the middle of a quiet road. I was too chicken to pick it up and move it.
It has taken one whole day to lay the concrete slabs. Now they are moving earth around. What are they planning to do here?
It's less gray than yesterday but still the grayness is upon us. Good that we had two bright and fresh cold days earlier this week.

Since two days they are reshuffling the construction material storage but what are they going to do with these concrete slabs?

The red boat in the harbour is named Groningen which is a good name for a red boat.
I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps, sang ol' blue eyes. Me, I like waking up with a fiery red sunrise in a city that slept nice and quietly. Or however a city pretends to sleep.

A winter picture in the direction of Hoogkerk with the moon still visible.

Bathing in the last rays of sun on this warm, sunny Sunday the church here in Callantsoog looks very friendly.
Approaching the carpark by foot on the bicyclepath one passes this meadow.
Blue skies and a very warm sun make for excellent winter Sunday beach walking weather.
Actually, seagulls are always stupid so it goes without saying.

Walking on the concrete path through the meadows towards Gravenburg.

My appointment is in 12 minutes and before I go in I kill some time taking pictures.
The former Huize Tavenier just before the next bus passes.

Bicycling back from shopping in Zuidhorn -easier now with a tailwind- my glasses stay cleaner and I can see the sun occasionally peeping through the mist. Not so visible here, though.
Another reflection in the window on this misty morning. Actually, it looks pretty vague.

It's getting darker on the land expansion behind the dike at Noordkaap.
The sun is setting above the fields behind Uithuizermeeden.

This time we see the coloured houses from the other side of the wind-swept harbour.
Because the storm was very strong last night we took the Buddha and plants indoors last night.

The houses in the neighborhood. Some are vacuumed by blondes in pink bathrobes.
An Icelander wouldn't eat fish this old. But we tell ourselves that it tastes better when it comes from Iceland.

Just a bit too late because I had to get my phone. But still an almost iconic picture of the sugar factory.
