Today the earth has already done 7 more circling rounds around the sun, and it keeps doing her job better than many of us do; good old planet earth, the only one who could host the human beings. Never complaining or asking for a salary rise, or health benefits.
Our planet is a kind one to keep up with us, the way we treat her.
The Christmas trees after having been used as decoration all over the places inside, and outside the houses, they have no meaning any more, and they have to be disposed of. Cremation of burial (Recycling). In Wenduine choose for cremation, and they make a show out of it with fire works and a lot of drinking and singing. Thank you trees, you deserved better than to burn in ....I was saying hell, but it was the beach of Wenduine, a dark misty night.
At about 18:30 ( it is dark at 18::00 hours in this time of the year, the fire was set by the firemen (should they not kill the fire instead of starting it?)
flames went higher and red.
And the fireman were having a lot of fun, dancing around.
The amazing with the fire work and the burning is the lack of safety. The fire was practically fired next to me and exploded just up our heads.
With the high amount of Jenever (kind of Gin) and beer is amazing that are no casualties at all.
It is funny to see all this people at the beach on a cold misty winter night. They don't seem to care: let's the beer flow and the music play.
i went home and slept well all night.
The morning of the 6 was sunny and nice, there was a little mist but no wind.
I wend to the beach to see the ruin of the previous night but it was nice and clean. Amazing.
It was so nice on the beach that I started walking to De Haan, about 2.7 miles (5 km) I couldn't see Oostende , covered by fog, but De Haan was vaguely visible, and was like a mirage in the desert calling me, so I started walking along the sea.
At about half way the city of De Haan started playing games; instead of approaching it kept moving away. The faster I walked, the quicker she moved back.
I had the intention to get the tramway to get back home, but when I reached De Haan, the sun was looking at me like reproaching me something, and that is why I decided to go back the same way, viathe beach, on foot.
Horses were doing it, people on bicycles were doing it; why should me not walk on foot? Later I would be sorry, but I did it. Walk all the way and back. 10 km.On the beach, crossing many strams of sea water getting back to mother the sea after having fun on the beach, like children running to mama. i felt like Moses crossing the red sea, wet feet and cold.
Some fishers were half drowning trying to get the nets full of , probably, sand,and some tiny shrimps; what men will not do for being away from the wives ....oops.
The sun decide to shine more bright like showing the mist to the door ....the mist just vanished for a little while.
It was a nice walk, and now is raining again, a tiny drizzle rain.
