Gilbert - A Trip to Drenthe


Yesterday we went on a trip!
We got a car and drove to Drenthe.

We were going to Balloo where there is a large field of heather that's called BalloĆ«rveld. Sullivan has been there in the past and told me to visit the sheep.

Hmm... No sheep in the sheep barn. It was a beautiful day, so they were out among the heather.

It is beautiful here, I must say.

Blue skies and open fields.

Finally I found the sheep!

They were ambling along and having fun in the sun.

This sheep was feeling itchy!

After a nice walk we went back to the car and drove to Rolde, where we got something to drink at a cafeteria. The weather was nice enough to sit outside.

And we got French fries with mayonaise, peanut sauce, and onions!

Yum Yum!

We also visited the church in Rolde. 

It seems birds claimed this mailbox. The sign says: bird nest, no mail

Inside the church was this fun distancing sign, using sheep to sheep how much distance you should keep.

There was on old baptismal font with a fish drawing above it.

And beautiful stained glass windows.

Before driving back home we walked past the graveyard of the church to visit this hunebed. It was a perfect day!

Gilbert - Beanie Mail


This week I got mail!
Usually it's Sullivan who gets mail, and often it's books, but this was Beanie Mail addressed to me!

The card inside even had a G on it! And there was a cool British Library folder thingy as well.

Beanie sent these to me because I got a BINGO in his Bus Bingo game on his blog. The folder thingy can hold my travel papers next time I go on a trip!

Thanks, Beanie!
