On my doorstep

I live in an area of The Hague that's known as Bezuidenhout, a name which would translate to Southwood in English. A slightly posher neighbouring area is known as Benoordenhout, or Northwood, and situated inbetween these two areas is the wood from which they take their name. It's called the Haagse Bos, or The Hague Forest...and it's right on my doorstep (give or take 200 metres). Crossing through it yesterday on my way to the shops, I suddenly remembered I had my camera with me, and snapped a few pictures.

What a lovely place to have so close to you.

It's one of the things I like best about my hometown: it's so green everywhere! This is in sharp contrast to the other two 'big cities' of Amsterdam and Rotterdam that, although they have their parks as well, are far more built up.

Though I must admit that even though these beauty spots are all around me, I don't often pay them any attention. Our recent WILD-weekend has changed that; and when we do it again, I hope to show you all some really nice pictures!

It really is, especially in summer when there's plenty of lush little areas on the banks of any one of the lakes, or more secluded ones tucked away deeper into the woods, just perfect for a picnic.

It's so beautiful! That duck looks happy to be there.

I think she was a little annoyed with me; she'd been basking in the sunshine, then I came along and startled her by stopping to take her picture.

So beautiful.

You're trying to get me to The Hague, aren't you?

Is it that obvious? :-)

Seriously though, I'm happy to meet you wherever.

Me, too. I know I don't often comment, but I've been following your 365 project with much interest over the last year.
