I am back from visiting with family
Mr. Husband, my parents and I all spent a week
together in Holland.
Mr. Husband and I stayed on and went to Maastricht
(in South Holland)
and then Luxembourg.
Here's a few pictures.
I am posting this in advance.
I have a district feeling that I will need some time to rest when we return,
so if I do not do lots of blogging or blog commenting,
please do not worry, I am merely resting to reenter things again more fully.
I hope to be given time share a lot more about our trip!
Here are some highlights:
|In Dokkum with Mr Husband's Cousin, Mr Husband and my parents. St. Boniface is strongly remembered here.|
|Very old church in Winsum, a village in Northern Holland|
|Mr Husband was esp. impressed by this 10 foot long Lotus flower....|
|We went to liturgy in Amsterdam and saw this very|
beautiful icon of St. Boniface!
|Mr. Husband took me to 2 quilt shops in Amsterdam!|
|We spent an afternoon - early morning at a lovely monastery in Holland.|
|We visited St. Servaas who is a very early Saint in Holland, over 1500 years.|
|We had a very lovely beautiful breakfast in Maastricht|
|Saw a very lovely small Orthodox Church in Maastricht.|
|Saw St. Willibrord in Echternach, Luxembourg|
|Had a very lovely afternoon cup of tea and rose petal ice cream at a fancy Parisian tea place near our hotel.|
Mr. Husband went with me!
This means that Mr. Husband's hero status is increasing :)
