Beach and meadows

After three severe storms those last months, they are now making our beach fit for the summer, with huge trucks and excavators. Very soon, mass of tourists will be here again, after one festival is before the next one. I prefer to escape to the countryside, that is still green if you drive North East (Alpujarra, province of Granada), and to listen at streams and irrigation ditches. If I am lucky, I will see a fox or a deer.

We have got terral since yesterday, that is a hot wind coming from the interior from north to south. At this time of the year, it is still enjoyable, while it makes temperatures increase dramatically during the summer. This year, I have been forward-looking: I have already ordered 10 books for hotter days ;-)

Going home

May will always be a strange month, some bank holidays, but different ones in every country or parts of them... A yearning for summer but, at the same time, the wish that advantages of winter could remain as well.

Tulips in Warmenhuizen

Reality has little to do with memories. It is colder, wetter and more colourful. Houses have been build. Fields have disappeared. But tulips are still there. Many. Wonderful tulips!
