Oosterhout & more; op rits met de Captur

Saturday, 22 February 2014: 
On tour with my new Renault Captur, but first refueling (first time)

Villa BBB in Oosterhout revisted for the 3rd time. 
We occupied the suite Bank again coz it's soooooooo nice 

Also revisted BUT this time with a brand new name Restaurant By Pascal (fka as Restaurant Bling) in Oosterhout. Wow, it was SUPER! 
On the picture above the several 'Amuses' that were a purrfect start of our dinner.

Restaurant By Pascal: oysters and more ;-)

Restaurant By Pascal: the other courses. We had 5 in total, but desert consisted of 2 separate ones ^^

Coffee with friandises concluded our lovely evening. On photo bottom right Peter and his sister Saskia (dinner at Pascal was her Bday present ^^)

Visiting Klundert a former fortified city 'Vestingstad'

Willemstad another fortified city, which is very well conserved and attracts loads of tourists in Summer. It's location at the mouth of Hollands Diep makes it strategical important. More info about Willemstad.  

more Willemstad; the Germans made fortresses during WW II.

We made a detour when going home visiting the Maasvlakte 2, near Rotterdam, which is new land reclaimed from the sea. Awesome and soo impressive. There was a fierce wind so not really 'beach weather', but we enjoyed and were impressed.

Zeeland (with Roos & Henri) - February 2014

seashore at Renesse West, Zeeland

Last weekend 15-16 February 2014 we visited our friends Roos & Henri in Zeeland. We stayed in a holiday house near Renesse West, which belongs to friends of Henri & Roos. Cute, lovely wooden house decorated in seventies style. Fun. 
We had dinner at hostellerie Schuddebeurs, where the food was good but definitely not the waiter. 
The next day after a superb healthy breakfast made by Roos, we went for a walk to the seashore. Blue sky and sunshine what more can you wish...
Returning to the house we sat in the sun for a while before we left to visit Zierikzee. Wow, what a lovely town.
We had sort of late lunch there before we reluctantly left Zeeland and drove home.

A lovely weekend!
Thanks sooo much Roos & Henri.

our hosts

Hostellerie Schuddebeurs: good food, expensive AND moreover an impolite, rigid and appalling waiter, who thought he was funny, but wasn't AT ALL: yak, yak, yak. Not the guy on the photo btw, he was ok. A reason for me not to (re)visit the place.

dishes at 'Hostellerie Schuddebeurs', of course I had oysters my fav dish ^^

after dinner drinks at 'home'

Superb breakfast made by Roos
