Walk on, with a smile

Goodmorning everybody!

I am happy to say I actually did some of the things I had kind of planned. Hoorray for me LOL!
Still something left, as there is always, but no big deal. So may be, if weather stays at least dry, it will be a nice break to go to the fair and see what stuff they have.
With no further delay we will continue our walk through Leiden, yes?

Made a close up from the tower
And walking on we found another courtyard
And there was also a beautiful looking fuchsia bush, just begging to be captured with the camera.

And look the outside of another courtyard, just beautiful

We could visit this one too and of course we did
The people that live there(how lucky they are!) really try to make it look cosy

And not much further another one, not bored yet by all those courtyards?

And passing again a bridge you get this view on a canal

To have a bit of idea through what streets we walked here a shot of one of them, some were even smaller!

And then it was time to have a little break, so we found ourselves a nice cafe, to have a malt beer for Jan and a cappuccino for me. Oh, a bit back we also passed the market, and there I saw the most delicious dried sausages and they had an offer that you got some reduction on the price if you bought three. Well, you guess right, I bought them. In the evening we tasted a few slices of one of them and it was delicious. This one even had small parts of walnuts in it, yummie.
Here the picture of the cafe from across the street, and so funny, the name of the place was: "The Friend".
I think we sat there fo about 15 minutes and then carried on, direction station again and go home.
But there was still another surprise waiting for us. We stumbled again on the entrance of a courtyard, so I entered, but after passing the small, small alley, I came in a little place with kind of garages, well, I think it were more sheds, walked left around it, couldn;t go on. Walked right around it, hey, another alley, again sheds, so I almost wanted to give up but saw another passage through and tadaaa, the most lovely courtyard reveiled itself. It was the funniest one, because you couldn;t ecxpect it after passing all these sheds!
And here ends our walk. We took the train back and ariived at home at about 17.30 afternoon. Great day!

Can you imagine the week is almost done with again_? Its Friday already and just one more week to go and we are entering the month of October! Hmmmm, it's going fast, so we better take it day by day LOL!
Today's freebie another serie of bragbook pages, I am afraid. But I found some lovely free to use background, that I cropped a bit and they were just perfect for some fairy pages. I ALWAYS love making fairy stuff. So here we go, with the first part of  "Fellowship".

After this post I will ave to post on the forum, it's my last day of posting there for this month.
Hope you will like the "Fellowship"serie, have a fabulous weekend!

Such a quaint little town, Leiden. Love the photos. I was looking through them and noticing the age of the architecture and the gardens. Here, nothing is over 400 years old, it seems. Before the 'white strangers' arrived, there were only the Indians. An old building here is one that is 200 years old. Up in the northeastern part of the US, there are some buildings from the 1600's, but, they are few.

That's looks like it was fun for you and Jan. Shoot!@ I would have loved it! LOL

Take care. I'm still here. Kind of down, but still here.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful work and beautiful pictures. It must be wonderful to live where there is so much beautiful nature and surroundings. I live in Texas (farm land and cow country), 35 miles from city shopping and too hot to even think about walking around.
Thanks again for your generosity.
