Crafty bus stop
There is one bus stop in Haarzuilens, and I think it is one of the most crafty I have ever seen. Made of wood and delicately painted. Lois noticed the red white stripes on the houses. All or most of the houses in about a mile surrounding of Haarzuilens have the red and white colours on their window shutters etc. This indicates the house is property of the baron.
Haarzuilens is one of the last estates owned by a (lower) royalty. Each year the city council is summoned to the castle to justify their policy of the past year. The Socialist party hates it and complains every year, never the less.... .
The day I took the pictures it was very sunny but also hazy. There is a lot of water everywhere, depending on the combination of weather types the days before a sunny day can be covered with a hazy look, making that you walk in a dream because the sharp edges don't show.
