Thank you QuiltnNan!

As you can see I'm back I had a great time despite the weather. It was quite rainy but I managed to go out on my bike every day. Some of the pictures I took:

As you can see the ships are sailing very near to the beach.

This is Zeeland. It's a flat part of our country except for the dunes of course

[ATTACH=CONFIG]612790[/ATTACH]
Here I'm standing on a dune, 50 meters high.
I climbed those dunes so often I strained both my hips, left worse than right so I had to quit climbing dunes for a few days Still I was able to go to the beach as in one area you can bike on the sea side of the dunes!

Great pictures, as always. That's a pretty steep climb. I know how the hips feel when taking my small hills around here. Glad you had a good time!

Hey I bought a GW pattern last week. The first one I've seen in a LQS around here and it was on sale as the shop is closing...I paid $1 for it. Would have loved a SW, too. This is officially on my thinking list, but not starting it yet.

Thanks OK!!
My hips were so sore, I had a hard time sitting and sleeping. For a day or so I was afraid something was wrong with my hip replacement on the left side but it just needed some rest. Lucky me!

You did? Finally a GW? Congrats! When will you start? Don't overthink, just jump in. You can hardly go wrong with a GW.

Sometimes I think posts have a life of their own. I didn't shout/use caps so I don't know what happened!

Yeahhhhh I just ordered Meadow But I need to finish My Small World before starting another one LOL Do you think I'll stick to that?

Today is another yard work/cleaning day. And I'm going to purchase some new plants for the front yard.
