Dunkerque, France - 2nd May 2008

By: Steve & Helly

To end the day I visited the War Memorial, one of many along the north coast of France.

I spent some time sitting and thinking about how awful the human race can be to each other.

Here I am with my new friend Rangler. We climbed one of the stones together. This is 'The Avenue', a long parade of stones which leads to Avebury stone circle.

By: Steve & Helly

Although he's not a gnome, Laughing Buddha wanted his photo taken with me. Just as Helly was taking the photo, look what happened . . .

A real gnome appeared!

This is Norman The Gnome and he and I got on very well indeed.

He's a house gnome and brings your home 'Good Luck'.

Devizes, England - 14th May 2008

By: Steve & Helly

Here I am at Caen Hill, an amazing flight of sixteen locks. Rangler and I climbed onto some of the lock gates and tried to open them.

Trouble is, I think you have to be a little bit bigger than we are to get a good leverage!

In the end I got fed up and lay back to rest.

Devizes, England - 14th May 2008

By: Steve & Helly

Look, this is a close up of one of the locks. It's ever so deep. I didn't want to fall in.

I then walked to the bottom of the flight and looked back up.

I was a little disappointed there weren't many boats but Helly tells me I'm back in Devizes on Friday so I'll look again then.

Devizes, England - 16th May 2008

By: Steve & Helly

It's nearly time for me to go and unfortunately I didn't get chance to see more canal boats.

However, I did squeeze in a visit to another white horse. This time it's Devizes' millenium horse.

(I also visited the local garden centre, looking for gnomes but guess what . . . they didn't have any!)

Calne, England - 19th May 2008

By: Steve & Helly

It's time to say 'Goodbye'. I was very upset at leaving and my friend Norman came to see me off. I was really upset at saying bye to Norman but he told me it wasn't goodbye but Au Revoir.

I climbed into my space bag and off I went . . .

'Bye Steve & Helly, hopefully I can come and visit again soon'.

. . . but wait, what's this?

In a seperate envelope are items to be sent to Melissa, ready for her scrapbook for Hank.

Look who's climbing in the envelope . . .

Norman can't bear to be parted from Auggie so he's flying to America to keep Melissa company and wait for Auggie's return.

Goes, Netherlands - 27th May 2008

By: Jiles

Hello! I arrived in The Netherlands! It was only a short hop to the opposite side of the North Sea. I am doing fine! :)

A cute little girl said hello to me.
http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/3585/27015st9.jpg

She said her name is Miss E and she comes from Portugal. She helped me to get out of my spacebag.
http://img79.imageshack.us/img79/7973/27018me0.jpg

I told her everything about my travels, she thought I was very lucky and she asked me if she could travel to Gardog too! Hmm... I don't really know!  :thinking:
http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/7472/27020qf0.jpg

Miss E had just prepared her lunch but she said there was enough for both of us. That's great because I'm very hungry!
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/794/27005up9.jpg

Here I'm eating poffertjes, it's a traditional Dutch dish. It's very similar to pancakes but they are smaller. :)
http://img248.imageshack.us/img248/2774/27013zs9.jpg

And now I need some sleep before I'm going to explore the area where I am now! Bye!!!

Goes, Netherlands - 30th May 2008

By: Jiles

Hello! Unfortunately the weather hasn't been good since my arrival... :( it's cold and the sky is grey. I have been told that this is the typical Dutch weather. Hmm... I sincerely hope it isn't always typical Dutch weather then!  :stare:

Miss E showed me around, she is in Goes for some weeks already, she is a wonderful tour guide!

Here is me with Miss E, in the background you can see an old bridge, made of stone. The bridge is part of the historical fortifications and long time ago there was a city gate at this place. The name of the gate was the Ganzepoort or Geese's gate in English! :D
http://img49.imageshack.us/img49/47/305003pq7.jpg

The church behind me is the 'Grote of Maria Magdalenakerk'.
http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/7868/305009ro4.jpg

It's an interesting building and I could also have a quick look inside!
http://img138.imageshack.us/img138/6939/305006mb8.jpg
http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/5748/305005jo8.jpg

This is the museum in Goes, Historisch Museum De Bevelanden. There are expositions about Goes and surrounding area. If the weather doesn't change, I will certainly bring a visit! ;)
http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/6726/305008wv0.jpg

This is the town hall of Goes, the town hall is located at the market place.
http://img50.imageshack.us/img50/6623/305021ra2.jpg

When we arrived at the market place, there was a wedding in the town hall. Unfortunately, we didn't see the happy couple but we saw their amazing car! Miss E told me about an event being held here recently with many old cars! I wish I could have seen that!
http://img90.imageshack.us/img90/6063/305012gj6.jpg
When we came home, we looked at Miss E's photos. :)
http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/8590/305027zm1.jpg

After that, I went for a walk around the harbour. These are ships! Hmmm... ships on water, not in space?!  :thinking:
http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/4003/305013bq4.jpg

This is the bridge that leads to the harbour, the bridge is manually operated by a bridgekeeper. I hope I can see the bridge again when some of these strange ships arrive!
http://img92.imageshack.us/img92/5459/305014hu0.jpg

This is just outside the harbour. I really love the views but the weather is so sad! :(
http://img75.imageshack.us/img75/7259/305015ic0.jpg

Back to the harbour. In the background is the same bridge. At this time, there aren't many ships in the harbour. Sometimes it's so crowded that you can almost walk from one side of the harbour to the other side, via the ships!
http://img68.imageshack.us/img68/4346/305022cw9.jpg

Some of the houses here are amazing! Look at the big house!
http://img124.imageshack.us/img124/7417/305024uu3.jpg

I am in the oldest part of Goes, on the way back home I saw some very cute houses. :)

Kinderdijk, Netherlands - 1st June 2008

By: Jiles

On Sunday we have been to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Mill Network at Kinderdijk-Elshout. Or short, Kinderdijk. :)
In Kinderdijk are 19 well preserved windmills. Nowhere else in the world, you can find so many windmills at one place, it looks a bit like a forest!

The windmills were built around 1740 for a drainage system. The area, called a polder, is below sea level and the mills drain the excess water via large paddle-wheels into the Lek river. Nowadays a modern pumping station has taken over the work of the mills.

First, of course, we had to explore the map because it's a large area.

http://img183.imageshack.us/img183/6758/16130il1.jpg

At the entrance of the area, they explain about the water management. Here you can also see that Kinderdijk is a UNESCO site.
http://img186.imageshack.us/img186/9108/16083bd4.jpg


Behind us, you can see a part of the modern power-driven pumping station, the large screws bring the water out of the area, into the Lek river.
http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/6923/16002yn8.jpg

The first windmills, look behind us!  B)
http://img402.imageshack.us/img402/1508/16007hq8.jpg

Wow!
http://img122.imageshack.us/img122/6938/16051xf3.jpg

Then we saw the cutest little ducks, swimming in the water and walking on the water lilies. :)
http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/7676/16017hg5.jpg
http://img399.imageshack.us/img399/1742/16016ys0.jpg

Allright! Back to the windmills! That's what we are here for! ;)
http://img369.imageshack.us/img369/3783/16067om6.jpg

One of the windmills can be visited, we didn't go inside but we could have a closer look here.

It's getting sunny!  B)

http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/7615/16100ef4.jpg

After our walk we drove a bit. In the meantime, the sun turned the windmills in a beautiful colour! :)
http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/4613/16127jr1.jpg
http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/5848/16110gw9.jpg

Amazing!!!  :o
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/8867/16115ip7.jpg

Sad but true, it's time to go home! :( But before we left, some little lambs wanted to talk to us. :)

Goes, Netherlands - 4th June 2008

By: Jiles

The little girl, Miss E, who came to say hello to me on my day of arrival and who shared her poffertjes with me on that same day, has left me...  :(
She is travelling to her next host in UK. Hmm.... that is the same country as where I was before I came here! I told her about the country and that made her smile again. :)

http://img359.imageshack.us/img359/6011/26010sb7.jpg

Bye bye Miss E!!!! I hope we'll meet again! :)
