An Afternoon on a Sun-drenched Terrace

It’s gloriously sunny in Amsterdam today, and I wish you were here with me to sit on my brother’s terrace, linger over lunch, and have a good ol’ visit. πŸ™‚

Smoked salmon

After we eat we could snooze in the sun and watch the clouds drift by.



Or watch the boats motoring along the canal below.


Then settle back to enjoy the sunset with a seagull perched on a nearby chimney.


What would you like to do on a lazy sunny afternoon in Amsterdam?

Krista - I’m with you, Andrea!! I left cold, rainy Washington to get some real summer and have yet to find it. The sun DID come out this week though, and I loved it. πŸ™‚ I hear other parts of Europe are sunny and hot though, so I hope that’s what you find. πŸ™‚
