Scenes from my vacation

No no no, it's not fair! Vacations should never end! It's just wrong I tell you! Wrong wrong wrong!

But... they do end of course and so did mine. I've been back to work for three days already and I really miss my vacation rythm. So here's one last look at last week:

Started at this train station when going on main land day trips.

Saw a big band of fog come rolling in over the ocean.

Journaled some and then some more.

Took the ferry several times.

Loved the way these masts look against the blue sky.

Received my first birthday gift (very early)

Sat in a park enjoying sunshine and reflections.

Saw a tree bend over to drink some water.

Went to the Alaïa exhibit in Groningen.

Went on many many many long walks.

I also read a lot, wrote a lot, slept a lot, got a lot of sunshine (the weather was amazing), worked in my studio a couple of times, did some sketching and blogged about it (see my last two posts), went on a small shopping spree and let my cat out of the house for the first time since I took him in three months ago (it went very well). All in all I'd say it was a good week.

Adjusting back to the work rythm is always hard for me, especially since I'm not a morning person, but usually live like I am  one (getting up at 6:30 in the morning). So when yesterday I was about to leave the office after being there for nine hours straight having an especially vexing day, I couldn't help make this little drawing on my desk calendar:

Don't worry, mostly  my days aren't so bad. ;-) Today for instance was a lot better indeed. I'm slowly getting back into the flow of things and there's a nice three day Easter Weekend to look forward to. I'll get through my little after vacation blues soon enough and back to blogging artsy stuff!

Hope you're all having a good week and a very artsy Wednesday!


  1. Dat wordt straks extra genieten van een lekker lang weekend Caatje!

  2. Well, I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation, and that you can enjoy a mini-vacation this weekend. Your time off, with all that walking, reading, and writing sounds just heavenly.

  3. Beautiful scenes, and so very different from my world. Thanks for posting these.

  4. As they say, “All things must come to an end”. If only vacation could last forever. Hehe. You sure got a lot of beautiful shots during your vacation. Your skill in photography is remarkable! That’s alright, there’s always next time! ;)
