Making us pancakes

I stayed at Simone's place today and baked us pancakes tonight. Simone had to work so she could take it easy.

The IJmuiden visit

Tonight after work, Simone and I picked up a van and drove to the camping to pick up the caravan. The weather shite...

At some point a lot of storks were sitting everywhere. Next to the road, in the middle of the road, on signs above the road and in the air flying. Pretty rare sight.

We brought the caravan back to IJmuiden.

I loved seeing the harbour. I was here for the first time. Awesome area!

It was late and quiet and getting dark.

Loved seeing the ships.

The LPG removal check.

I left work early today because I needed to take my car in for inspection. I took this photo of Central Station while waiting for my tram. Click to enlarge and enjoy a bit more ;-)

My car needed to be inspected to change the registration to a petrol-only car again. It's required since I took out all the alien LPG stuff. So I had to go to this government garage. It was dead quiet but the appointment before mine still ran 20 minutes late. Unreal...

My little pony.

Actually it's the biggest and heaviest model ever made. I like :-)

Apple pissed me off when I got home by telling my that I can't use my non-Apple cable anymore... Very bad move on their behalf.

The bicycles

Waiting for my ferry this morning. They replaced the old bicycle racks with new ones so they can hold more bicycles. it's also more accessible.

In the evening I took Simone out for dinner at Loetje. I expected a bigger / better menu. Also I expected all my schitzels to be crispy but half was soggy. Not so sure what all the buzz is about... Funny though that on a wednesday night, people are lining up outside to get in...

On my way home from work today the skies turned grey while the sun was still shining as well. I thought it made for a beautiful sky and I tried to photograph it.

The below pictures are from 2 shots. One is the original and one is HDR-ed. You can click on them to view a 2048px version. I hope you like them.

We went for a little walk in the afternoon. We walked through fields and bits of forrest.

We ended up at a sheep-shed. It was a nice place where we had a drink and apple-pie too :-)

When we got back we went  mini-golf. Fun! :-)
