The mist and the mud

On the misty Sunday morning in Groningen we went for a cold, muddy walk. It was such a mysterious atmosphere, which intensified with the Scottish highlanders appearing in the mist.

The family's sweet dog Fladder, one year old, was eager to play with Yatzie. She is of the breed Drentsche Patrijshond, a spaniel-type hunting dog from the Dutch province of Drenthe, south of Groningen.


All the mud in this area is a result of the Dutch people constantly waging war against the water using dikes, dams and impoldering. For a year the canals in this area have been under reconstruction, to ensure that the land will not be flooded, which happened not long ago.
