Day 8.

We spend a lovely afternoon at "Borg Verhildersum".
And in this case "We" means: Bram, myself and Birgitta (who stayes a few days with us, and is one of our best friends)
I know her about 35 years, and Bram knows her as long as we have a relation, so almost 30 years. 
We are very found of eachother which shows this picture from the 2 B's. ( I always take the pictures, so I am hardly on one)

( In this picture Bram looks good as you can see. But...after the cartrip to and back from Verhildersum in about 15 minutes, sitting on the terrace and a little ride with the wheelchair in the garden..he came home exhausted, could hardly walk and spend the rest of the day in bed. But I am really pleased with this picture, because it is a memory of a happy moment together)

In one of the houses is now an exhibition of Samplers from the 18th and 19th Century.
Very delicate and embroided in a time without electric light.
Here are a few examples...

On the terrace of the Restaurant we had tea with a "raspberry something" which tasted heavenly and tangy.
