We were busy yesterday!

Goodmorning everybody!
It looks to be another gorgeous day, let's see what we can do with it.
Yesterday we had quit a filled day! In the morning we took time to relax, so we had our coffee, morning sandwich, I took a shower, and such things. Early afternoon Jan suggested we take a walk, perhaps into town centre. Well, why not, so I joined him. In a part, around the government buildings, often there are outdoor expositions of all kind of art. So at this time. First we looked at some art of a Dutch artist, it was funny I must say. All her art pieces were exposed in a little glass greenhouse, so it was hard to get good pictures. The pieces represented e.g. pillows, and a couch with a men's figure on it, made of marble, but looking at it, you really could believe it was made of tissue!
A bit further on there was and expo of a Spanish artist, Valdes, who hade made statues of bronze. Here I made a few pics. And I liked looking at them, in a way it had something mysterious.
I think it is not too bad for rather modern art!
 Then I knew a bit further on there was an expo outdoor of pictures of wildlife, made by several photographers and as we were in the neighbourhood, why not take a look at them.? It was fantastic! And I would have taken a pic of every big picture if I could, but sometimes the light wasn't right for it. Still, I tried my luck on some of them and I think they turned out rather well.
Aren't they beautiful???? Oh, there were so many others I liked to make too! The photographers did a fantastic job, and what a patience they must have had for some of the pics!
We even discovered a hidden place in the old town centre! Normally a lot of the small yards, or parking places of old buildings are locked off with gates or so, this time at one we saw the gate open. And curious as we are, we sneeked in! And what did we find? A part of a wall of a Dominican cloister out of the 1500's!!! Never knew that was there!!!! So you see, even after years you can learn something new about your home town! Even made a pic of it, a bit pity of the modern building you also see, but it was such a wonderful little place, so quiet and almost sereen!
I have more pictures of our "cultural"walk, but I'll save them for Monday or so. Well, we were back home just in time for the soccer games at 16.00 o'clock. After that it was dinner time and then we had to go to the cafe, to watch the game of our team. Okay, they won, but I wasn;t nail-biting and jumping off and on my chair from the sensation! It was a rather dull match to be honest. I think they will have to act differently next Monday, when they will have to play against Slovakia!
And after the game you will never guess what we did!!! Jan and I played a little game of billiard, not pool, but real billiard. Only I didn't touch a cue for about 20 years or so! But it was sooo nice to play the game again, although I missed a lot of balls, but that's obvious, after such a time you miss the "fine-tuning"LOL! I never was really good, but still could play a nice game.
So now we decided that may be once or twice a week we go there on a quiet moment to play some more.

You can say we had a busy day, isn;t it? More than enough rambling done I think and time for the freebie.
It will be part 3 of the bragbook pages All of the Roses. Now you all have a marvellous day and a fantastic weekend!

Your photos are just wonderful. What an amazing discovery, the wall. It's beautiful, and looks to be in such great condition.

You and Jan certainly had a grand time enjoying the good weather and the Arts. We don't have that sort of "Arts in the Park" thing here very often. We do have free musical concerts in the parks though. Gotta go, you have another wonderful day my friend.

Hugs, Edna B.
