Back in the USA
« on: April 18, 2019, 09:42:28 AM »

Returned yesterday from ten days in Belgium and the Netherlands on a Uniworld River cruise.  Had a very nice time going form Antwerp to Amsterdam on various rivers and canals.  Managed to visit a handful of record stores along the way.  More details later on purchases.  Time to cut the grass.

I will get some pictures posted this week.

We had a nice time despite the below average temps.  It was probably in the mid 40s and windy nine of the ten days.  There were brief snow flurries on Record Store Day.       

 We booked this cruise last spring after my wife's best friend and husband decided to go.  It was a ten day river cruise on Uniworlds. RIver Duchess.    If you want more details, it's the "tulips and windmills" cruise.   

More later

Very nice!  Some cool pics of the tulips and windmills.  I hope to visit there someday.  I have flown through Amsterdam, but never been out of the airport.
