Electra and the Waterwolf revisited.

The ground water level is really high again in our area of the Netherlands so I was hoping that the Waterwolf, one of the largest pumping stations of the Netherlands like the one in Lemmer, was active.
But it was not.
Bummer.

The wind was really fierce, around 5 to 7 bft, so the PFK Nighthawk was the only way to go.
And it loved it.

Long live the fresh nose! :)

The sun is up, the sky is blue.
It's beautiful and so are you.

Just testing the tweaked autoKAPduino rig with the fresh S95 running CHDK and 56" samurai rokkaku.

The good news: it worked like a gem.
The bad news: it was too cold for ice-cream. :)

Thick grey soup.
As we call it.
Not a day to play outside with a kite.
Unless you have a brand new 78″ Quetzal Rokkaku.
And a friend who wants to play outside as well.

At least we got a fresh nose.
As we say here as well. :)

A lovely but windy day and another friend came along.

Wikipedia:
Dorkwerd is a small village in Groningen, the Netherlands. It is located in the municipality of Groningen, about 4 km northwest of the city center.[1] Recent construction of new residential areas have brought the city to less than 500 meters from the village of Dorkwerd.
Dorkwerd is one of the smallest villages of Groningen, consisting of a church and a few farms.
According to the 19th century historian A.J. van der Aa, Dorkwerd (also written Dorkwert, Dorquert) consisted of 19 houses, with a population of almost 140. Most of the village was in the municipality of Hoogkerk, west of the Reitdiep canal, but two houses belonging to the village were east of the canal in Adorp. There was a small village school here, built in 1832.
