Wandelaar, altijd nieuwsgierig naar wat er 'voorbij de volgende bocht' en 'achter de volgende heuvel' ligt. Met interesse voor de geschiedenis en het ontstaan van het landschap. Van korte frisseneuswandelingen tot langere dagtochten. Verzot op meerdaagse tochten, met het liefst overnachtingen in de wildernis.
Mijn camera gaat altijd mee op pad, een deel van mijn foto´s vind je hier op Komoot. Een ander deel op Picfair, een platform voor stockfotografie:
Artist Sam Drukker drew all kinds of places in Assen that are worth a visit or where there is a personal memory for him (he grew up in Assen). Together with Ronald Obbes, director of the VVV in Assen, he bundled them in a booklet: 'Assen in ink, a walk with Sam Drukker' (for €12.50 at Bruna (and at the VVV I'm guessing)). The booklet includes a map with a walking route with all the places where Sam has been drawing. And as soon as the word 'walking route' is mentioned, my interest is naturally aroused. Because Sam's drawings have a somewhat quiet character, I started the route at a time when it is quiet in Assen: at 5.00 am. Then you see Assen in a completely different way..... I took a photo of a few drawings at the relevant location (and of course photographed the location myself). In any case, I noticed that, because of Sam's drawings with all their details, I looked at Assen differently. Moreover, it is a beautiful experience to walk through quiet Assen, highly recommended!

A 'Christmas Flood 1717 walk' on both sides of what used to be the seawall in the 14th century: the Friesestraatweg (N355). From Grijpskerk, with a windmill and a Vermaning, via Gaarkeuken to Lutjegast. Lutjegast did not experience any real nuisance from the Christmas flood, but I wanted to visit it because of Abel Tasman (see the highlight about 'his' museum). From there to a mathematical riddle in Visvliet, which once had a seaport and an open connection with the Wadden Sea. Via Pieterzijl to 't Hoekje, where there is also an old dike, and via the Noorderriet nature reserve back to Grijpskerk.
Walk number eight in a series of places in Groningen that were more or less affected by the Christmas Flood in 1717. Based on the book 'Christmas Flood 1717, a pilgrimage' by Piet Nienhuis. I have collected all my Christmas flood walks in the Collection: komoot.nl/collection/1108384/-lang-de-grenzen-van-de-kerstlood-1717?ref=undefined

A voyage of discovery along the Amerdiep, one of the deeps that together with many others form the Drentsche Aa. The purpose of the walk was Halkenbroek, the source area of the Amerdiep. Another goal was to see the old course of the Amerdiep and to spot the first sunlight. Achieved all three goals :). With several nice and less fun encores: a deer with two fawns, a path that suddenly ended, a bridge that only existed on the map, resulting in a plodding trip through a much too swampy meadow with a downpour at that very moment. However, this resulted in finding another part of the old course of the Amerdiep (see the last three photos in the series). And the first sunlight is really the most beautiful light to photograph with!

My church visit this Sunday is fine: 13 pieces! With the start in Burdaard, along Tergreft, Wanswert, Marrum, Ferwert, Hegebeintum, Ginnum, Reitsum, Jannum and back to Burdaard, a good introduction to the Frisian meadow and terpen landscape. With first a few heavy showers, clearings with bright sun, white and black clouds, a beautiful walk!
