We had a lovely afternoon visiting the estate. It is beautiful there. And it was so quiet. You can’t visit anything without buying tickets on the internet for a certain timeslot. As a result, it is nowhere busy. In my opinion, things can stay this way. We had tea in the garden.

We had dinner in the woods, close to our house. We sat outside on the terrace that had tables well spread out. Evert had the filet mignon and I had the chicken sate. It came with french fries and a salad. We shared an icecream. I had a pinot grigio, Evert a beer.

This is the estate (huis Verwolde) from the outside:

I'm Trizzin' tonight. As of right now the plan is takeout from a local Italian place. That could change in a couple hours when I'm ready to eat.

Ingrid, such an elegant place! Thank you.

I took the boat ride back to the Ren private island when the rain subsided. No white caps...much better. The wind had picked up for the trip back but coming back isn't a problem. It blew a catamaran over by the island and a couple were struggling trying to upright it.

I now feel sad for the flamingos. They have it posted Adults only..kid photo shoots allowed 9 to 10 am. Kids were allowed all day and the bar was even giving them kibble to feed them. The kids chased them halfway up the beach. I wanted to go up and say something but as a senior citizen, I didn't want to get my ass kicked but two young Latino moms protecting their kids. How about we protect the flamingos. The adults weren't much better...take your photo and sit down.

Sorry to hear about the flamingo abuse Tara :( so quiet here almost eerie :D There is no hummingbird feeder but if I come back I will bring one, so many flying around, I drag everything else :lol: I read Demi Moore’s autobiography today on the lanai watching the tide come and go. Wine was in my glass and I made a Greek pasta salad earlier today with hot sausage and vegs, a meal in a bowl that I will have for supper a little later. What a peaceful day :D after a worrisome start (see Orrin’s post)

Great pics Ingrid

Hello, all!

Went and picked up #2 from the grandparents and almost immediately deposited him in church youth group meeting. Will be picking him back up at 7:30. I'm hoping we get along this week. Probably will since #1 is going on an older youth retreat tomorrow thru Thursday. Then we fly to Florida on Saturday. Getting along will be paramount then!

Don

We had pork chops fried with Yoshida and onions, baked potato, corn and a salad. Gin and tonic and now some red wine on the deck listening to my own music...for now.

Beautiful photos, Ingrid!

Dinner tonight was Caserta Pizza. Yum. And plenty left over to freeze for another dinner.

Karen, how was the Demi Moore book? As an actress I think she is one of the best ones ever. Loved her in G.I. Jane.

We had leftovers, but still yummy. It was the recipe that combined chicken and a canned celery soup with a grain mixture and asparagus...like a stew.
Milk at dinner.
Enjoying a glass of red right now.
Day 3 of not adding extra salt to any meals...hard habit to break.
