A Grand Day Out...

Yesterday we took the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge and then drove onward to the tiny town of Poulsbo to do some Dutch grocery shopping: Yay!  {smile} 

They have a small grocery store there specializing in Dutch, German, British and Scandinavian foods: absolute heaven! I did some serious pondering over a box with 24 frozen 'kroketten', but I was strong...  <wink> I did buy  'een klein kuipje met smeerkaas', just for the fun of it and of course tons of Dutch licorice (= drop), other candy, ontbijtkoek, stroop etc. Upon our return home our new weighing scale had arrived (it also measures bone mass, body fat etc) so now I'm thinking that maybe I shouldn't have bought so much bad (but soooo good) food from my home country. Oh well, it only happens about once a year...

Anyway, here are some impressions of the rest of our grand day out. No words necessary me thinks...

  2. happy new year to you Marjan - I've missed my visits over here recently and plan to do far more visiting blogging pals now the hectic season is over.
    Your photography continues to inspire me on a regular basis (and don't get me started on the dress making!!)
    Here's to a good year full of memory making

At the Lake...

To celebrate our last days together, Miss M. and I decided to go on a walk to Rattlesnake Lake, just past North Bend, WA. It was ...
