Thursday, June 9, 2011

Hi all, well another day,another swag of beautiful memories to take back to Australia with us.
It really was as pretty as a picture on a nice sunny day to see these 19 about 300 year old windmills lined up along the dyke. We will let some of our photo's we took, tell this story! After our breakfast of Hema rookworst (they are so Juicy) and a Dutch new herring. Just caught less than 2 days old and eaten raw. (yummy) our day got of to a great start. After our visit to the Kinderdijk (windmills) we set of along the amazing network of highways which all connect to ring roads around towns,Some of our politicians in Australia would do well to visit here to get some ideas about infrastructure, In only 45 min we traveled about half way across Holland to visit Geer & Nel, They live in this beautiful little village with nice gardens and waterways. We had a nice day reminiscing about the past over a few drinks and a few Heineken's for Ben and also Nel had made a delicious Advocaat tart. We made sure we got the recipe. They have a beautiful home in a nice spot. We will catch up with them again soon.
Today we are of to Delft,to the pottery factory, Grote kerk and the markets.   And most likely some more delicacy's!!
