Hi there! I'm back from a three week trip to the Netherlands! What a great time! We went all around the country. We saw windmills, castles, beaches, farmland dotted with cows and sheep, grandiose churches, beautiful canal streets, old homes and so much more! (including lots of kitty encounters!) We slept in a houseboat in Amsterdam, ate at beautiful terrace restaurants, saw some Dutch Masters paintings, slept in an actual small castle one night, did boat tours on picturesque canals... so much fun! I now have a fresh batch of photos to play with!
We spent 4 nights in this houseboat in Amsterdam and really enjoyed relaxing on the roof terrace!
The beautiful streets/canals of Amsterdam at night.
You can't go to the Netherlands without taking pictures of windmills!
Some fancy estates and gardens we visited!
This is the castle we actually slept in!
Beautiful streets and old houses!
They have great terrace restaurants over there! Some by the canals! (notice the begging cat in the background!)
This is how I got my kitty "fix" while I was away!
I even found a craft/scrap store by accident in one of the towns! I had to shop a bit!
Speaking of scrapping, I got some great news while I was on vacation. I was picked to be part of the DT at the new sketch challenge blog Simple Sketches! Go meet the rest of the team here! You can also like the Facebook page here! The first sketch challenge will be revealed on August 31st. Go check it out! You'll love the new sketches! They're very versatile!
