Honk, Honk....Animal Friends from Holland!

nbuerMom's last Big World Report took so long to post, that I now have to backtrack to mom's Big World Assignment to Holland, which took place last November 2010.
Mom has family in Holland, so she goes there somewhat often.

Mom always wanted to stay in a castle, so I reserved her a room for a couple of nights in the Kasteel Geulzicht, near Valkenburg, in the Limburg area of the Netherlands.  I asked mom to look for a castle cat, but she could not find one.

But mom did meet a whole gaggle of Greylag Geese, near the castle!
Honk, honk, it's JB's mom!  Honk, honk.

Did you know that Geese also cross the road to get to the other side, just like chickens do? 

 Then mom went on a walk from the castle through some muddy trails, still searching for animal friends for me.
Mom:  See what I do for you, JB?  Do you know that my shoes were ruined after this walk?

 She found a Great Blue Heron standing on a tree high above a house.

 And also what looks like little Brown Shrike birdie flying around.

 Then mom tried to be funny, and told me when she got back to the castle, two Lions wanted to be my friends!
Very funny, mom, and not acceptable!  These Lions are not real!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK here, and stop by JB's SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

lol JB cute story. The ducks look much better than the Canada Geese. Nice castle. What is that thing on the left side, some kind of tall shrub? For a minute I thought it was a cloud of bees. Nice photo collection, and nice trip as always. Anna :)

I have 2 cats now but they do not want to think about booking me a room in the castle -such marvelous castle!- they only want to eat something more and more tasty! Maybe it's because yhey are stray...
