Our yearly dinner with Saskia and Bas in Oosterhout at restaurant 'bij Pascal' celebrating Saskia's Bday. It was fun seeing eachother, great food, that was even better than last year. Pascal deserves a Michelin star.
After dinner P. and I passed the casino and tried our luck, which worked out fine for P. coz he won.
Like the years before P. and I stayed at Bed and Breakfast VillaBBB in Oosterhout. We slept in the 'Bank' room, which is lovely and has a former safe now used as the bathroom. In case you might feel lonely you can rent their gold fish ^-^
wonderful dinner at 'bij Pascal' in Oosterhout

After breakfast we visited the old fortress city of Gorinchem; the museum, the old harbor and walked the old fortress walls along the riverside. Great place with lots of history. Fun to visit. City rights were given to Gorinchem as far back as in 1382. Interested? See wiki info here
I have to confess P and I, we were bad coz we bought a cone of fries with mayonnaise, which tasted gorgeous, but hey we shared ^-^
It was a lovely weekend
