Groningen and Harkstede, Day 3




Today was my third day teaching at de Cordi Atelier in Groningen, the Netherlands. That's Anni, the shop owner, in her beautiful shop (above). And another very artistic group of students (below).



The Netherlands just shifted to their equivalent of Daylight Savings Time this weekend, so it was light late enough that there was time for a walk before dinner. I walked from Lya's house out into the main street of her town. Here is some of what I saw:


Lots open farmland and pastures with trees in straight lines.


A beautiful old cemetery.


Forsythia starting to bloom.


A beautiful house.


Amazing brickwork and beautiful doors.


Road sign indicating distances to nearby towns.


House with a thatched roof.


House with a frieze of a woman appearing to look out the window.


Row of houses on the main road.



An old windmill.


Netherlands license plate.


These wooden shoes were on the wall of a hardware store in Groningen.

More tomorrow!
