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?

Walking Tours Rome - Mmm – that smoked salmon looks so fresh and delicious – just like everything else on that plate! Makes me hungry. Sitting on a rooftop terrace and enjoying yummy food and beautiful views sounds like exactly what I would like to do on a sunny afternoon like this – in Amsterdam or anywhere else!! πŸ™‚


Anita - What a wonderfulΒ way to spend the day!Β  I think I’ll join ya!!Β 

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™‚

Andrea and John - We are so missing the sunshine! It rained so much in Ireland and now that we’re in the UK it hasn’t gotten much better. Hoping continental Europe turns it on for us!

Krista - Oh those are perfect additions to a good day, Keely. I love bike-riding too. πŸ™‚

Krista - You said it, Faith! I couldn’t be happier. πŸ™‚

Keely - Yours sounds like a pretty good day, but I’d probably add in a leisurely bike ride and some dessert in the afternoon if it were me! Good to hear work on your brother’s house is coming along.Β 

Faith - This sounds like the perfect day to me!Β  A lovely lunch, a beautiful view, and fantastic company…what more could a girl ask for?Β  πŸ˜‰

Krista - Me too, Mary. πŸ™‚ Hoping the sun comes out again tomorrow so I can do just that. πŸ™‚

Mary - I would love to hang out and people watch and eat delicious food. That sounds like a perfect day to me!

Krista - You’re so welcome, Bonnie. πŸ™‚ I’m glad you like it too!!

Krista - You are a kindred spirit, Ayngelina. πŸ™‚

Krista - I sure am, El! πŸ™‚ I really love it here – and dessert sounds perfect. πŸ™‚

Krista - That would be quite perfect, Jamie. πŸ™‚

bonnie rodriguez - Ahh so lovely!! the sunset look amazing, thank you for sharing!!

Ayngelina - Well first off I would be asking for more of the smoked salmon, but that is just me!

El - Gorgeous view. Looks like you’re having fun. What would I do? Eat dessert of course!

Jamie - I would like to be dropped into that third pic. Like Mary Poppins.

Krista - It sure was, Andi. Loved every minute of it. πŸ™‚

Krista - I love people-watching too, Val! πŸ™‚

Andi Perullo - Sounds like the PERFECT day!

Krista - Awww, then pull up a chair, dear Mia, and we’ll enjoy this gorgeous day together. πŸ™‚
