A wee bit late with Sunday Sevens this week – but my excuse is we were away for the weekend and I wasn’t home on Sunday until 10pm. If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know I was whinging last week about being poorly last week, but flights were booked and paid for to visit Lovely Eldest in the Netherlands, so there was no not going!
No photos from the beginning of the week, as I didn’t leave the house. But on Thursday, Lovely Husband scooped me into the car, drove me to the airport and made sure I didn’t lose my passport or get on the wrong plane.
Lovely Eldest’s apartment isn’t big enough for us all, so we stayed at the Grand Karel V Hotel in Utrecht.
On Friday we went to Keukenhoff to have a leisurely stroll around the gardens. Keukenhoff is one of the world’s largest flower gardens, covering 79 acres. Apparently 7 million bulbs are planted there each year. It certainly felt like spring.
Back to the hotel for a nap then out again in the evening.
Saturday we visited the lake at Henschotermeer…
And the pretty town of Naarden, which is set inside a fort…
On Sunday we had a meander around Utrecht, before, all too soon, it was time to go home.
Despite being rather tired from not being 100%, I had a lovely time and, of course, kept my strength up with lots of lovely food.
