Holidays in England are the best!
Well, our holiday is over now. Ordinary life is about to begin again. Here in the Netherlands it’s still 31 degrees this week, so we can enjoy the sun for a few more days. Gerben and I have had two weeks holiday which the first nine days we spent in England. Normally we go shorter because we don’t want to leave the cats alone that long.They are then one time per day taken care of by Gerben’s parents. But our niece stayed in our house now, so we could stay in England a bit longer. We went four days to New Forrest and five to Rye which is our usual place to stay. And it was so nice, we had great weather, we even spend a few days on the beach. We have been to New Forrest before, saying New Forrest is saying horses! In the wild!On our way to Rye we stopped at Beachy Head were you can see the Seven Sisters, a formation of seven cliffs. We love to go there for a walk and enjoy the beautiful nature and the sea.I love everything British, I’m really born in the wrong country, including humor. This is the name of a fish&chips restaurant in Hastings. That’s humor!These are the typical fishing cottages. Here you can get the tastiest and freshest fish.Where we also love to be in England are the wildlife parks and rare breed centers. Usually they have birds of prey where they fly with. Beautiful! And you really should watch this video! A piggy race! Tears ran over my cheeks from laughing.During our holiday it was my 38 birthday………….for the twelfth time. So I thought it would be very nice not being at home then. Yeah right! When we came home at midnight there was this in the garden. I do not know if my foreign readers know this, but in the Netherlands it is traditional that you get a Sarah doll in your garden when you turn 50! Secretly it was fun! And all the cards and flowers too!
Back home we enjoyed our second week with lot’s of cycling, going out for dinner and shopping! I thought I would not long hold out, I don’t use the wheelchair in my own environment, but I shopped for five hours!( including a lunch of course) and I loved it! Of course you get to see what I bought! We also spent a day in Giethoorn.
It was a wonderful holiday!
I wish you all a fantastic week!
