Goodbye and thanks for everything.
And now, another year almost over, I take the opportunity to thank you all for your nice and encouraging words, for your interest, for sharing a little piece of your life but above all for giving YOUR warmth the last two years. Special thanks to Nihal for the beautiful "give away", click the picture and read about it or/and have a look at her interesting blog "Crossroads".

Viewed from the Texel side. The ferry departs each hour from Texel - Den Helder and when there is a lot of traffic ( in the tourist season ) both ferries are operational and you can go each half hour. Good for you to know in case you would like to visit me, hahaha.

I had a nice walk on the beach and was turning into the dunes and there I saw this little fellow. As soon as my shadow felt over him his tail went up and he stood still. I had to get my camera real close but he didn't move, thanks for that. The first photo is out of focus but I want you to see it anyway, the other picture is better but it's not a great position. lol.

The stairs in the living area, probably a bedroom door but I think there is not much left behind it.
A part of the roof almost falling down, it is not a good idea to go there.
The living room the arch is in the middle and the first level floor is no longer there. It's hard to imagine people lived here doing this we all do, eating, sleeping, watching TV, having a party or sharing sorrows.
In this area the roof has collapsed. I have no idea how long and why this farmhouse is abandoned, probably they were sold out because the expanding city needed the land. How long ago? At least 20 years? Maybe longer.
This is in the barn, you can see the fence in the 2nd picture.
Bathroom window, nothing left inside.
This roof construction is still standing but it won't keep the rain out.
Nature has taken over.
I hope you have enjoyed this exploration, the next in a few weeks, I'm looking forward to see your explorations. lol.
But if you do, don't touch anything and leave it as it is. Respect the rule "Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but pictures".

The picture on top shows the first target, it was not so difficult to find an opening in the fence we only had to wait no one was watching us. Let's go!!!!!!!!!!!!
Entering the building.
Me taking a picture, the red light is from my camera but you photographers do know that of course.
This is one of a few things left in the kitchen.
The floor, not safe enough to go upstairs so we didn't.
Would you like to see more?

It has nothing to do with J.R.R. Tolkien's epos but it is a "Ringsteek" competition in Den Burg (Texel). There is not much to tell about it, have a look at the photos (more than usual but they belong together) and you see what it's all about. Is this a typical Dutch game or is it in your place too? This is my post #200, never expected to get this far.
