Hello my dear friend! I just want you to know how much your photos always broaden my view of our beautiful earth! To come with you and follow along with your life is one of my greatest pleasures dear Riet! I have been enjoying the posts that I have missed since I last visited and seeing all of your gorgeous photos of your visits to lovely places. I had to smile when I saw the parachute glider with the smiley face on it : ) The mare and colt was also a beautiful shot.
I hope that life is going well with you and I am sending my love today.

And I was just about to say this looks like Amsterdam! :)

*sigh* The very atmosphere of Amsterdam in these photos makes me want to go there real soon!

Amsterdam seems and looks like a glorious city - the old world buildings line wonderful old canals. Lovely with the brick plazas covered in light shadowy tones. I hope to visit with my wheelchair someday!

Amsterdam heeft gewoon fantastische gevels.

Amazing photos of Amsterdam - taken with an artist's eye.
The soft light and colour of the trees, it looks like Spring.
- a beautiful study of light and perspective.

Love the boats nestled into the side of the canal - and the bicycles.

Wishing you a happy Shadow Sunday Riet!
I'm off to look for shadows today - you've inspired me - thank you!

Heerlijk lieve Rietje, ik voel me weer even helemaal thuis, Amsterdam,mijn geboorte plaats.

Zou er nu voor geen goud meer willen wonen maar fantastisch weer eens al die mooie trapgeveltjes en heerlijke grachten te bekijken. Uiteindelijk zijn die in Amsterdam toch zeker uniek te noemen.

Geniet van een fijne zondag,
[Gaat he al iets beter?]

Hello Riet, you know I loved the photos of Amsterdam. You did a great job sharing the city on the waterway. Our visit there is getting closer. We get on the Riverboat around five in the evening Dec. 12th or 13th. I am still hoping we can meet for lunch.
Happy days to you and yours.

Ha die bruggen komen me heel bekend voor en ook de nieuwmarkt foto's. Alleen die laatste moet ergens op de wallen zijn en vrij nieuw denk ik. Leuk overzicht.

Fijne zondag verder!

Liefs, Juliëtte

Nice canals. Are there any live aboard barges, or are they too narrow? - Margy

Byłam w obu pięknych miastach, a w Amsterdamie dwa razy. Bardzo lubię Wasz kraj i dlatego zagoszczę u Ciebie. Pozdrawiam.
I was in two beautiful cities, and in Amsterdam twice. I like your country and, therefore, will be hosted by you. Yours.
