There is an old newsreel on the site of “Beeld en Geluid” which shows some problems for the pilots on the “Westerschelde” after a period of intense foggy weather. My father-in-law worked as a pilot in those days (1959) and therefore the video is a sweet memory …..

You can see his “beurtpennetje” in the video.




He married this beautiful girl , working at the Philips site in Eindhoven …..





There is a larva of a dragonfly on our couch on the veranda. Now just have to wait till the “magic” happens ….



I found a short video on YouTube which shows what we can expect ….

visited the farm again

We went back to the farmhouse together. It’s like a museum of how the poor simple peasant  in Zeeland was working and living for the past 100 years ….



I was able to film the stable and got the impression as if the animals were just taken out. It would be the perfect decor for a movie about the birth of Jesus Christ ;-)
