A quick McD note

Friday 6am we set off for Folkestone and the Channel Tunnel. It was very busy with everyone travelling to Arromache for the WW2 commemoration.
We drove along the coast stopping at a pretty sea side resort to eat our packed lunch, then finally arrived in Blankenberge Belgium to find our studio apartment.
We are right on the prom but do not have a sea view as we face inland which is rather a shame.
However this has turned out to be rather good as it is quiet, where the front apartments are very noisy.
It is a holiday weekend here in Belgium and very hot so everywhere is extremely busy and parking is horrendous !

After settling in and dining in a nearby restaurant we visited my friend Vera for the evening sharing many memories.

Saturday we drove to Sluis in Holland and wandered around the shops, eating in a nice little restaurant and then travelled to see a friend, Gerda in her shop Ajour. I bought a set of 20 crochet hooks!

Today is Sunday and still very hot and busy everywhere, we had a lazy morning and then drove in the centre of Brugge to meet Michelle a friend I had not seen for 14 years!  We are now in McDonalds more to use the Internet than anything!

Just off to see Vera again.

Does this mean you might be motivated to make some lace? Tell her hello from me please. She came to Williamsburg (if it is the Vera I think it is).

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
