During this Saturday along the North Sea.

We had lunch outside only 14 C. There were lots of people with young children eating outside with us.
Then we went on the beach for a walk

This is a polder where people can have nice walk with their dogs

We saw a stroke in a garden
We are very tired after walking and shopping and we must have a good night rest!

We are in the Netherlands!

After the covid years, we finally arrived to our favourite place!
We are dinner in the restaurant we used to go and it was famous as usual. I like the decoration, all the hams and sausages hanged in the restaurant.

The hotel was in transformation before the pandemic and now it is brand new. It’s name is Sanders de paaw ( which is 🦚 peacock) this is why rooms are decorated with peacocks 

And the chairs in the restaurant.

Tomorrow we are going to walk along the North Sea
Today we have done 400 km drive and 7 km walk!
( I have problems to leave comments on blogs Linda’s blog)
Problem with Google!

Apple trees blossom

 Hello Friends 

My visit to the hospital began at half past eight and ended at one o’clock! I had many different exams and I came back with a headache. I will have laser in June and  Head MRI.
But we still have beautiful weather and it’s nice to have barbecues in the garden. The sparrows are nesting ( we have four nests above our window shutters and many excitement around our house!
I find the apple trees flowers so nice and

In Normandy we used to have many apple trees to make cider and Calvados ( strong alcohol) in the past we used to drink a small glass of Calvados  in the middle of  meals which They called «  le trou Normand » it was facilitating the digestion and you could eat more afterwards. It was in between two dishes.
