Well we waited for morning to do this post, but that’s OK….you’ll probably get 2 today.
We left Aalsmeer and started heading down to see some of the van der Woning part of the family in Hedel, more southern in Holland. As we have the day, we took some back-roads to get a more scenic trip down as it is only an hour away. We stopped at the Kasteel De Haar to do the touristy thing and take some more pictures. Quite the impressive place. Pamela mentioned how it reminded her of Downton Abby with all the different rooms. we were here for a good couple of hours.
Just down the road from the castle we stopped at a small little place for lunch…Kort-Jak Restaurant & Pannenkoeken. Yes, we had pannenkoeken (sooo tasty) for lunch with beer, wine, and coffee. The server was great, even asking if we wanted our picture taken. Now…off to Hedel.
We arrived at Ron’s place around 4:30. by 6:00 Marcel and his family showed up, and Andre and his by 7:00. Time for some Heineken and some BS. This is why there was no blog last night. This is definitely a van der Woning group. After a while with them, Pamela mentioned we are all the same; from dad, to me, to these three brothers. I guess I see it. 😉
