Seaside and art

Goodmorning everybody!

Oh, what a wonderful day we spent yesterday! At about 1.30 p.m. we left to go to Scheveningen, first we took the tram and almost in Scheveningen we stept out to do the last part by foot.
The weather was absolutely fantastic. Just a soft, little breeze, sun all over, temperature around 26C ( ca. 80 F). So in a slower pace, we walked to the seaside. For already months and months they are re/arranging the whole boulevard, a part is done now, but still lots of work to do before all will be finished. But I must say, it really looks beautiful.
So we made a loooong walk over the boulevard, looking at all that was new,  savouring the lovely weather, the calm sea and all. I am sure we got a good tan yesterday, and that´s nice, because walking around it goes without noticing and doing much for it LOL.
I have made some pictures and will show a few today, the rest will have to wait till Monday. The only thing I regretted was, that we didn´t take a walk along the sea-edge, but may be one of these days we will go to the other , smaller seaside resort, and there it is also a bit easier. Love to walk over the wet sand and look at all the shells and other stuff, brought by the sea.

First picture if of a flower shop in a little shopping street at Scheveningen, which we always pass when we go there and I never can resist making a picture of it.

Then at a few steps away, we passed a tiny side street, in which I fell in love with immediately. People living there, made the entrance so nice and inviting.(love the red gate).
Again another small side street, we entered, just because we were curious, and found a shop-and atelier of a bronze statue artist, but don+t you love the view of it?
Then we finally arrive at the seaside and had to make a picture of the beach and sea, specially because the sea was so calm.
Not the most beautiful picture, but you get the idea.
Then on a part of the boulevard was a little exhibition of bronze statues, themed fairy-tales, and they were real funny!. So here already a few of them.
And one of my hubby, looking at those real special statues.
(Always have to make them a bit hasty, cause he doesn+t like it when I take pics of him)
Oh, my, did we enjoy our trip to Scheveningen? Yes, we did and we also took time to take a drink, and all together we arrived home at about 5.00 p.m.!
I made a quick dinner and then was glad to sit down on the couch! Still having a bit trouble with the bruise on the chest, I think that will take some more days to heal, but we can live with it ROFL.

I have a link for you to the blog of my friend Snowy, who finally started designing a bit again, and she has some great freebies for you there. Still she will offer them not too often, and that is because she has lots of other things to do LOL and, most important for her, soon she will travel to America, to meet a special friend and spend also time with other friends.
Then Linda has made a beautiful quickkpage for you with my Midnight Serenade kit, go there, and when you download, leave some nice words!
 Arlene has made fantastic clusters for you with the same kit, what a coincidance!

And now time for me to open the garden doors, make a little walk through the garden, probably have another coffee, just savouring this wonderful weather,
After all the colorful kits lately I thought you might like one very neutral and soft, so here is Calm Before the Storm.
Have a fantastic day, and weekend!

Oh Kyra, I love your photos! Those statues are just precious. Especially the little one peeking down into a hole. I love getting a glimpse of your area. The little streets are laid out so pretty and enchanting.

Don't overdo your exercise though, take care of yourself. May your bruises all heal very soon. You have a marvelous weekend my friend, hugs, Edna B.
