that's My World seen on a bicycle ride.







Please click on the slide show to see more details!

This is what we saw on our bicycle ride in the polder.(A polder is low-lying land that has been reclaimed and is protected by dikes, especially in the Netherlands) more than a week ago: Hay making, cattle, sheep, lovely houses, among them a Swedish house, a heron, coots on nests in the middle of a canal, Canada geese, farmhouses and finally a cafe, where we had coffee!! We had been cycling for hours and the weather was excellent

That's my World is hosted by Klaus,Sandy,Ivar,Wren,Fishing Guy & Louise - a Team of experienced bloggers, whom we thank for this wonderful meme. You can see more of the world of other bloggers by clicking on the logo in the side bar or on that's My World

Beautiful reader wil. Sometimes my Hillegom friends send me slide shows like this - your country looks so beautiful. You are lucky that it is so flat that cycling is an enjoyable activity. Here it is too hilly.
