Summer always brings those wonderful exotic fruits and veggies and on the market I can go for hours picking out fresh fruit. The fruit detox for this week contains passion fruit, apples, grapes, strawberries and mango. Throw in a few macadamia, walnuts and apricots kernels (alternative cancer treatment and contains Vitimine B17) and you have a real organic detox that will make your body go WHIIIII of happiness.
It was time for Regatta this weekend for Laser in Hoorn and it was a busy marina. As we are waiting on a spare part to arrive we have a great spot in the marina and it was so fun to see the sailors prepare and set sail out on the lake, they are really skill full I must say even though i still think it looks funny when grown up men and women are in these small boats as this was something we used to do as kid to learn how to sail. But it is fun and I understand why they do it. People from all over Europe was here to try and take the trophy. Let the best man or woman win! 🙂
Today its Kings Day in the Netherlands and all over its Orange. we take it easy with the boat and its the first time we are not in Amsterdam celebrating and its no dingy weather as it is cold and windy. This is how Amsterdam looks on Kings day 🙂
Koningsdag or King’s Day is a national holiday in the Kingdom og Netherlands. Celebrated on 27 April (26 April if the 27th is a Sunday), the date marks the birth of King Willem-Alexander.
Up until 2013, when Queen Beatrix abdicated and was succeeded by her son Willem-Alexander, the holiday was known as Koninginnedag or Queen’s Day and was celebrated on 30 April.
The holiday was initially observed on 31 August 1885 as Prinsessedag or Princess’s Day, the fifth birthday of Princess Wilhelmina, heir to the Dutch throne. On her accession in November 1890 the holiday acquired the name Koninginnedag, first celebrated on 31 August 1891. In September 1948, Wilhelmina’s daughter Juliana ascended to the throne and the holiday was moved to Queen Juliana’s birthday, 30 April. The holiday was celebrated on this date from 1949.
Juliana’s daughter, Beatrix, retained the celebration on 30 April after she ascended the throne in 1980, though her birthday was on 31 January. Beatrix altered her mother’s custom of receiving a floral parade at Soestdijk Palace, in Baarn instead choosing to visit different Dutch towns each year and join in the festivities with her children.
Its no secret in today’s society that there are people that work on a daily basis with controlling the weather. the government in US has had HAARP for years and that’s scary stuff. I posted not long ago a post about CLOUDS and for years I have been thinking that they do not look the same as they done before. They look fake some times and just does not make sense with how it suppose to be. I cannot explain it but there is something strange going on. If you know more than I do about the weather please give me some comments so we all can learn whats going on.
Its end of April and its snowing, sunshine, hale and storms back and forward for days. A few days ago we went to our friends camping and took a stroll with the dogs and it was beautiful and okay weather when passing the horses and looking at the flowers blooming, now I have no clue what has happened?
Yesterday we made a trip to our friends camping and on the way we stopped to look at the tulip fields as we realized we never seen them since we came here, now we have and the colors was just amazing. I love flowers but as live aboard is not always the optional to have a vase of lovely tulips on the table.
