Having a wonderful time - wish you were here
My holidays started in the Netherlands with a visit to my friends, Goos and Jos. We got to visit the Saturday market and yes, I did find some fabric, as well as some fabulous Dutch cheese and some fresh fruit. We visited the St. Jan´s Kathedral - an incredible gothic church - catholic in its current incarnation.
Sunday we spent time doing a ¨spring¨cleaning in their garden patch. It is beside a small stream with a pasture of Shetland ponies behind. As you can see, we had spectacular weather, albeit cold.
The neighbors are growing white asparagus - grown underground.
On Monday I caught the train to Anrwerp, to visit with Karen and Marc and their children, Alexander, Rudyard, Sophie and Senne. More to follow - life is good!
