On Easter Saturday we walked the Knuppelpad (bat path) on landgoed Oostbroek. Our youngest grand daughter calls it Knuffelpad (hug path). hi

The water behind us is a former arm of the river Rhine, the ancient border of the north of the Roman Empire. This water has been a part of the river Rhine. But the water is now separated from the river Rhine. I took the picture of the four of us, with the camera facing to the east.

On the right side is (was) the Roman Empire. At that time this part in the Netherlands called Germania Inferior Inferior means low lands. Not unimportant! hi.

We have been away for a few days to Groningen.

We stayed in the  Hampshire hotel in the southern part of the city Groningen, aan het "Hoornsemeer".  

The first day we visited the inner city of Groningen. At first we walked and later we decided to take the bus (nr6) to the railway station.  We walked past the museum into the inner city.
La Place restaurant on the roof of V&D offers a nice view of the Martini tower.

The second day the weather was very good, so we went to Haren to visit the Hortus. 
The most spectaculair part of the park was the Chinese garden.

In the Bamboo bush we photographed some frogs.

The last day we did more shopping and bought a new lamp and a few interesting books bij De Slechte.
