A short break!

Thanks for all your comments on Utrecht, which I visited with a friend a couple of weeks ago. In the past few days I had visitors from South Africa, a first cousin of my husband and his niece, the daughter of his brother. We went to the windmills, saw a castle near Gorinchem and two days later we took the train to 's Hertogenbosch, where we made a fantastic tour by open boat through the canals under the city. I was so enthusiastic about it. I hadn't gone on this tour if my visitors hadn't be here.Lateron I shall show you more photos, but I will be away to France for a week, in which I cannot blog very often! I shall return on the 22nd. My post for ABC "V" is scheduled, I'll try to answer the comments .

Have a great vacation, Wil. At the end of the week I'll be away on vacation till the end of the month - and then hopefully escrow will have closed and I am moving. So, I'll be very irregular with posts and comments for next few weeks.
Which castle is it near Gorinchem?

Have a nice trip - we expect more pictures of this quality! In the meantime I will wonder about MY "V"...

Dina said...

Wow, I never knew you had a city with canals under the houses!
What fun to see.
Have a nice time in France.

I want to tell you that yes, my granddaughter does speak German, so does my son, her Dad. She is teaching the baby English and German!

Wonderful photos, Wil. We can wait until your return from France, and I'm certain you will have great photos of your trip there.

Great. Snaps of windmill and the castles are beautiful.

Have a happy vacation.

Hey! You left without me? LOL

Ann said...

Welcome back Wil. Are the tulips still here?

I always wonder what they do with the inside of the windmill.

My son in his metal tech class is making a windmill.

Cheers,

Ann :)
