Goodmorning sweeties… you came to take a peek at my desk? There’s not much to see today… I took a quick photo of this art journal spread I just started – it’s only paint and two images that I *might* (or might not) use…
… instead of taking you with me into the atelier, I thought you might like to come take a walk with me again through my town. It’s been a while since I showed you around (May and June) If you don’t have the time now, that’s no problem. You just go do what you have to do and skip the walk okay?!
Here’s my town Middelburg from above (photo from www.aerophotostock.com) and I marked the route we are going to walk. The little numbers (can you find them? You might wanna enlarge the photo…) refer to the places I’ll take a photo.
Did you finish your coffee? Put your flat shoes on, then here we go…
Let’s take another route than we did last time and start at this square. See how lovely the low Autumn sun shines on the fountain?
I like to walk the streets along the town canals and admire the old houses (and, if I get a change, take a peek through the windows to see what the inside looks…)
We walk just outside the town centre, through the back treets behind the city hall, see its tower?
Let’s take a turn and cross the centre to the other side… OH LOOK, there’s someone waving at us!

Here’s one of the shopping streets, but we will not go shopping today… we just have to walk a part of it to turn right at the end… and look, there’s Tall Jan keeping watch over the town.

Here’s one of my favourite places in town, the ‘Fish market’.
… and this is why I told you to put flat shoes on… Middelburg is no town for high heels!
Let’s walk along another canel… and while we walk, we can take peeks through the little gates into the alleys that are behind it.
We’ve been here before haven’t we? It’s always nice to look at the boats in the small harbour. Tourist season is over so there aren’t that many yachts there, but still there is the bridge to admire.
Yes, we’re close to my home – there’s the Eastern Church.
However, we’re not going home yet. Let’s take a detour and walk a bit further.
There’s the park that will be refurbished in the next year, but with those Autumn colors it looks good to me right now…
Hey, there’s a back alley that I never walked before… let’s take that turn and see where it leads to…
Oh, we end up at the little street where Sandra van der Meulen has her gallery… the flag is hanging outside which means the gallery is open, let’s go for a visit!
Sandra is such a lovely lady – she serves us coffee and we get the change to admire her latest art.
Now that was some ending to this walk! What? Are your feet hurt? I told you to put on your ‘easy shoes’! But hey, we’re home now, so take them off, put your feet up and enjoy the rest of your day!
