My pal Katy waiting for me to throw the ball…
Katy gets used to having a massive beach to run around on….
Just one of the critters who scamper up and down on the grass next to where out boat is tied up.
The red and yellow beaked mini-chicken and its mother in the background seen near our boat today.
Another scary beast seen on the streets of Amsterdam yesterday. Run for cover!
A dangerously ferocious, highly unpredictable and hungry llama seen stalking the streets of Amsterdam yesterday. All visitors beware!
We’ve spotted a number of these ‘nests’ made by the Oak Processionary Moths in nearby oak trees here in the Netherlands. We’ve never seen them ever before. That’s global warming for you Mr Trump!!!
But, before blaming Mr Trump too much, it looks like we British might be responsible for introducing this particular (and toxic) pest into Europe. More information here.
I’m back in Holland after a frantic week in London. The dog seems happy to see me!
The frogs here in Holland are all fired up with the need to make love…(lucky frogs!).
Another in the Chicken series….(please look elsewhere on this blog for examples of other chickens)…
After a few days of intensive blogging, me and the dog (the dog and I?) have decided to take it easy today….ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Don’t mess with this chicken!
“You lookin’ at me???
Our dog, Katy, who just loves sniffing around in the grass. Katy is a Dutch breed of dog known as Fryske Stabij or Stabyhoun. Dog’s like Katy are meant to be excellent at catching moles and rats. It is fair to say that Katy has never caught anything in her life! It has been said that a Stabyhoun is “not an expert at any particular skill.” That about sums it up and we have a dog with no skills whatsoever unless you consider finding and ripping tissue (especially kitchen paper towels) into a million pieces for no apparent reason to be a skill.
A big chicken seen lurking in the reeds today…
The rabbit who lives in the hedge next to our boat…
This bird is either sleeping or it has one gin and tonic too many!
There are not nearly enough upstanders in today’s world.
I’ve never seen a bird with a moustache before!
The Bird With A Moustache
I’m not sure why but you never see a monkey smile…
The Miserable Monkey
Hmmmm….should I get up or should I just sit here in the shade…
You can’t beat a good stretch first thing in the morning…
Now what was it? Left over right and right over left???
There is no escape….
You can’t beat a sit down in the afternoon…
With apologies to Mr Vermeer…
The Girl With Plastic Earrings
We’re all just numbers these days….
