As we reflect back on our time in the Netherlands, all we can say is OBJECTION! We object that we had only had one week there and that we had to leave our friends and their wonderful country too soon!
We had an amazing time reconnecting with Wendy and Peter who we met thirteen years ago while hiking in Zion National Park. They visited us in California twelve years ago and since then we kept contact through Facebook and Christmas cards. ...
... the house an hour early. We had to take gas and return our rental car. It went smoooooth. United offered TSAprecheck, in which they apparently give your data to the TSA, so we went through in minutes. We entered our terminal at 7:25, three hours to spare.

We got on well and as a result were offered a Portuguese Madeira Port "on the house". How civilised and enjoyable. The tarts were for Roselyn, who loves them !!
So, all in all, a good day out and a good celebration of Roz's birthday.
