Bonjour mes amis!
As promised yesterday, I'm going to share some details about our trip to the "Old Country", also known to me and my family as, The Netherlands, or Holland. Last weekend, we decided to drive up to visit some of Dr. J's distant relatives who live in Friesland, which is in the north of Holland. We arrived rather late because of the horrible "rush hour" traffic in Paris, but cousin Jewel was happy about our safe arrival, and provided warm greetings and comfortable beds.
Just look at the view I woke up to Saturday morning...
I quickly woke up Dr. J and told him to get up, because we were in Holland!!! There was more for me to see when I got downstairs...
What a beautiful
Leeuwarden it is!
Here are some pictures from our wonderful day!
|Cool old Buildings!|
|Nice Brick and Architecture!|
|Cool, Old Doors...one of my weaknesses!|
|Flowers and Wrought Iron Fences!|
|Pretty Street Views and Lamps!|
|Cafés to relax!|
|Nice, Strong Coffee and a Cookie!|
|Good Food...and Good Company!|
|Cousin Jewel told us that this was a Statue of "Our Dad", the founder of Friesland!|
|Another pretty Street view!|
|A Cheese Shop that we HAD to go in to!|
|...and the shop keeper is cutting some aged Cheese for us!|
Tomorrow I'll be back to share a little more of Leeuwarden, since I realize this post got a little picture heavy!
Do let me leave you with one last picture though, since I couldn't resist having Dr. J take this one of me in front of yet another shop!
Have a "Jewel" of a day!
