Aren't you lucky Marengo to live by the sea, and in a village where the Queen sometimes rides her horses!

Does she ride often? I haven't seen her on horseback too much - I guess she is a little busy & likely doesn't ride as much as she wants too.:(

In the weekend she is there sometims, once a month at least if the weather is nice. Usually old men on motorpeds are going to the parkingplace to talk to the stablestaff of her majesty. If the queen comes (by car) they will keep a polite distance.

No wonder the Queen likes to ride in your village Marengo. Besides looking like a beautiful spot, I'm sure she appreciates the fact that the people of your village give her some space.

And you are so fortunate to have the opportunity to see the Queen so frequently. As a Canadian, I have the chance to see MY queen maybe once every 4 or 5 years. :(

... and earlier in the day, the Queen visited a large work of art in Utrecht. These pieces of art are being placed in 25 districts of the Netherlands. They are meant to be an area where children can play, and in general, people of a community can meet.

I found these pictures of Her Majesty but don't know where or when they were taken because they don't have captions

Thanks for the pics Anna_R. :)

These awards are given to people who volunteer their time for nature preservation or culture. It must have been a rather poignant occasion for the Queen since this award (which began in 1950) has been given out every year by her father. This is her first time in presenting the awards.
