Hopjes from Veere is the limit but I love the reenactment shots of the illfated English invasion of Walcheren. The English army was decimated, not by fighting the French, but by 'Walcheren fever'!

Here's the phonetic transcription of Joke and Ine:

/ˈjəʊkə/ and /ˈɪənə/

Hope this helps

beautiful! and love that tilted tower, great angle!
hopjes are Haags!




hopjes from Veere!




but would really appreciate if you would reveal the proper phonetic spelling! (and for 'Ine' even more! THX? ;-)).
I think Jo-ke would be totally happy sounding Haags, as long as no one thinks she was named 'joke'?
she told me about the Veere ramparts. I didn't know they existed either and they have been there for a while?





found Napoleon amidst enormous smoke clouds.
(it was almost dinner time)





the boys were busy too!


and there were 'British'





and locals





and tourists















and of course there were Scots
(Scottish Scots, from Scotland! ;-))

Veere is the place to be!

Pity I didn't run into Jokuh (sounds more like 'Haags' :-)) or Napoleon!

Veere is a gem.
I love the clouds!

TY Pieter! and TY Fred! (!)
it is btw strictly prohibited to park there! ;-) (those ships were all sailing past the boulevard). and the series didn't happen.
these were taken while sitting against the boulevard wall for some shelter (h☼t!). on top of a steep slope, wearing summery shoes with slippery soles and no intention to roll into the water.
(barefoot you'll be grilled on that south facing boulevard! dancing the horlepiep until you reach wet sand).
still thinking about FLs and best spots and angles, and talking with my neighbour (equipped with Canon 'of course'), prior to the show. the entire allied naval fleet was about to pass Vlissingen on its way to Terneuzen. but they never did.


'these' were btw the maps used during the Battle of the Scheldt









and 'these' are RAF pics
october 7, 1944









the bombing of the Nolle dike!

THX to Joke! (a local.
feel the urge now to repeat what I once heard her say:
"my name is Jo-kuh! NOT JOKE!" )

beautiful pics!
and even spotting little s!

On 17 September angora (Ine) and I, and Marjo, and our dogs Brody and Nina, had a mini meet at Hof Eindelienge, a biodynamic farm in Ritthem, Walcheren.

Ine posted pics of this farm before in this thread and she was so kind as to introduce us to the farmer and his wife, Leo and Mieke, and their beautiful horses. It was a great experience and we spent a few hours admiring the horses, the ploughing and talking with Leo about his passion for this way of farming which seems an anachronism but actually may be very modern!

Thank you Ine for making this possible. It was lovely to meet you again.

Time for some pics!

and to the next.


for freedom



so stay awhile but spare a thought...











Canadian frigate
(more than 6,000 Canadians, AlsoKnownAs the Cinderella army, were either killed or wounded here )












on august 31st, we commemorated the Battle of the Scheldt, 75 years ago (in november). an event in Terneuzen was the kick-off to a year of celebrations to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Netherlands. Willem-Alexander invited mr. Trump to the party as well (but he hasn't been spotted). rumour went that Vlissingen didn't throw the party, because it couldn't afford it and Middelburg refused to pay a cent. while Zeeland-Flemish Terneuzen was eager to do the honours. the fierce Battle of the Scheldt was a turning point in WWII and paved the way for the liberation of the rest of the country.
but, again, this battle is little known.







a fleet review was part of the festivities and all ships, from 6 different countries, would pass Vlissingen between 12 am and 1 pm. we saw a couple of naval ships across the water and coming from every wrong direction, saw a brass band and heard the Flushing cannons roar to salute the allied fleet, long before there was a ship in sight, but, except for the Canadian HMSC St. John's, that was sailing back and forth, nothing worthwhile. as usual, we were not even surprised. later saw that US destroyer Ramage had spent the night here.

done waiting!

that huge thing on the right is btw the radar tower.

Galgeput or Sardijn, a bright yellow light is burning.
