Hi, what a few days we have had! After a great time in and around Rotterdam, where we have stayed with Henny & John, also at Henk & Ria's and Gerry & Sonja stayed at Jan & Conny's home for the last 2 weeks. These people have really gone out of their way to provide us with the most fantastic meals, breakfast, etc. everyday has been a experience, in one word it has been great!!!
We have now moved for the next 2 weeks to a camping near Oldebroek near a area called " The Veluwe ". A Beautiful part of Holland,forest and lush green farms with nice homes. Some areas date back a thousand years,  hard to imagine!  We visited a place called Urk, a fishing village, we were impressed with all the history, in a small place like this.But we were also shown what the weather in Holland can be like! We froze our arses off and the wind nearly blew us off our feet.
The weather forecast is better for tomorrow, also we should not complain, the weather for our first few weeks here has been great. Yesterday we visited  our nieces Marian,Anneke & Yvonne and their family in their home near Groningen where they have a large shoe store called  Devos schoenen. They are well known here, because they specialize for people with problem feet. and there are enough of them! We were not prepared again for the great reception we got, with just a couple hours notice, Jan ( Maryan's husband) had a unbelievable Buffet prepared for us. And he is not a chef, he does this for a hobby! 
 Good catch Marian.!!
We had a great night, lots  of reminiscing, it all seemed like we had never been away for that long. We will catch up again in the near future.
