Excellent photos Maddie!! That cottage looks so spacious and tall! You must have had plenty of room for your families. A lovely calm sea and beautiful weather, very fortunate. Lovely to see Spring flowers gradually blooming.
What a charming town, Maddie. I just love your travel pictures! I'm only able to be on for a minute tonight and they cheered me so much! I'm exhausted from all of our family activities today! Getting off to bed after I put another of Scotllass' reports up.
I'm going to show all of the Europeans our Canadian Rockies pictures soon because they may not be familiar with that part of Canada...due north of us here.
Keep your pictures happening-love them! Hiya Marie!! Nite. Love, Mary
Thanks for sharing the pics Maddie. It's great to see pics of other countries I love the little drawbridge pic. It reminds me of when I lived in Lowestoft (England) and there was the drawbridge at the end of town, to let the trawlers(boats) through
I was interested that you described it as a 'cottage' . Here in Engalnd a cottage is a very small old house. Usually in the country and with small windows , small rooms and low ceilings. What a difference.
Hi Maddie, we do have holiday 'cottages' over here out in the country villages but, yes - it's as Caro says, a cottage is a fairly small, usually old house and often picturesque. From your photo I think I would call your accommodation a 'rented house' or 'holiday house' because of the size of it. Whatever it is called it still looked perfect for your family needs.
Just found these wonderful pictures, Maddie, thanks to Monarchfan's reply!! I agree with Caro's comment about a 'cottage' but I notice on a UK programme, "Escape to the Country" (which we really enjoy), they often refer to large country houses as 'cottages' for several hundreds of thousands of pounds!! Certainly not what was our concept of a cottage!!
I think I have said this before Maddie but you really do have a great talent for gardening. Have also just seen the photos of your beautiful grand daughter, what an absolutely lovely little girl, you will have many many hours of fun with her.
Yesterday we've been with my mum ad dad to the Belgian Ardennen, a city called Dinant. It's a lovely place to walk along the Maas ( river ) and to see the Citadel above the Church. As my dad is too old to have a long walk we didn't visit the Citadel. I remember I've visited it once when I was a child. There's a room in it with a floor which isn't straight at all. It's like you're drunk walking through it
Here some pictures :
And some pictures made in the Church'
A very high stained glass window, from the ceiling till amost the floor :
