a few more dutch pictures

We were able to see a few of our good friends during out time in the Netherlands. from L to R: Peter , Liz, Lynn, Pauline, and Jan. It was so good to see these guys...they are truly some of the best friends Peter and I have ever had...very challenging and very loving. Plus, when we were in this cafe, a bird landed on Peter's head. It startled him, and he swatted it right into Jan's hair...it was very funny...These two pictures are from a war cememtary near Arnhem. This one was a British cemetary, and it was a very sobering reminder of just how many people gave thier lives. Europe still very much has these reminders of WWII...I found myself reading the names aloud. Most were between 19 and 25.

The picture below is from Zutphen, a small town in the east. It is such a picturesque photo of what a typical dutch town looks like...I like them very much! (note-there is a lot of water!!!)
