Re-visit of the Openlucht Museum in Arnhem and a visit to Houten

Friday, September 18, 2015


As Leonie and Ferdie had heard of the Open Air Museum in Arnhem as well they wanted to pay a visit, so we did.  I think I took pictures, but they may be on my camera for a change, which is packed for the trip home tomorrow.  They will follow in due course.

One of our last chances of going to Houten and visit Wim and Gerrie, so we did.  Beside our usual chat together we went out for a walk to a nearby fortification. Earlier we had been talking about The Hollandic Water Line, which was a series of water-based defences conceived by Maurice of Nassau in the early 17th century, and realised by his half brother Frederick Henry. The nearby fort Vechten is/was part of the Water Line and an interesting place to visit.

Openlucht Museum Arnhem a visit from Jose

Monday, September 14, 2015


On Monday cousin Jos came for a visit.  It was a rainy day, so we took a while to decide what we were going to do.  It being Monday most of the museums were closed, so there was nothing we could do inside.  Eventually it cleared up enough for us to go to the Open Air Museum in Arnhem where we had lunch and spent the rest of the afternoon.  We finished the day with a simple and quiet dinner at home in Wijchen and a lot of chatting till late in the evening.

Since I am by myself for a few days and Leonie and Ferdie are not coming home until late in the afternoon (or so I thought) Jose came to visit me in Wijchen for us to have a nice chin wag.  It didn't quite happen like that, because Leonie and Ferdie, together with their son Geoffrey came home early.  I picked them up at the station in Wijchen and we had all lunch together.

Wednesday and Thursday, September 16 and 17, 2015


On Wednesday we had a quiet day at home, as on Thursday, however we went out later that day to have lunch with Bram and Wendy in Nijmegen.  Wendy is the daughter of a cousin of Ferdie's.
