Continuing our  
On the Move report, summer 2016.

This time we went into the deep: 
to the town called Staphorst

Sister Hessel was asked to look after.... 

and her aunties.
Lucky us, the "job" came with " a roof " for 
All Mulders and Co.

Nope, not this farmhouse, 
Sophie's house was a bit more modest.
Staphorst is loaded with well manicured dwellings and yards. 
All groomed and trimmed on Saturdays, so it is a pleasure to run-around in the early hours of Sunday Morning and
enjoy the local real estate.

Main street Staphorst.
6 AM, Sunday Morning.
Peace on Earth.

The Town and its surroundings is famous for its traditions.
The main tradition is the Power of the Church,

Beside Sophie and her Aunties,
there was also a School of Fish to be fed.

Talking about fish...
Due to our Sunday Mornings Fish-market job in Fukuoka,
i always like looking around fish-shops.
See here the display of such a store in Holland.
Indeed not showing much fish.
Luckily they did have some Hollandse Nieuwe.
(raw hearing...yummy).

 Back to Staphorst.
As said, it is a pleasure to Run and Explore the neighbourhood. 
This time going Out of Town....

...and never have to worry about getting lost 

Some wildlife.

Magic country for Running.

More wildlife: Yes those are Storks.
(Marijke All Happy...haha, but a few weeks later in Portugal we spotted Storks by the Hundreds).

Famous Dutch Skies,
flat land and no mountains.

After a week it was time to Move on Again.

Thank you Staphorst.
We take wonderful memories back to Japan.
