Queens Day

First I want to thank you all for your lovely comments on my Flower Scarf. I always love to make something, but when the comments are so nice and warm, it really gives energy, and encourages me to go on.

Today is ‘Queens Day’, and that means a lot of people in the streets. The city has transformed into one big flea market, and everywhere there are people. There is a lot of music, and everybody seems to have a good time.

As you can see: the canals are filled with all kinds of boats, and a lot of people are dressed in orange, the colour of our country.

Even our neighbour Ibu, who is originally from Guinea was dressed in orange! Every year he is on one of the squares in town, with his group to make music, which makes you very happy!

Tonight we probably will go to see the fireworks.

Groetjes, Dorien
