Walking Down Memory Lane

10/01/21

A slow morning unwound itself, landing on us all enjoying a breakfast together.

Later on, we all walked the almost 3 or so km. into Doesburg together, desiring to go to ‘Ferry Snacks’ once again 😉

Filling up on nasi balls and fries.

And ice cream. 
Like, really filling up… to the point that even the thought of them right now, isn’t all that amazingly appealing. Meaning we did our job of filling up on what we could, while we could, rather well I suppose 🙈

We meandered around town, popping into a couple shops, and simply enjoying the time together.

Pictured here, you can see chestnuts lining the street.

There are many of them around, and their dangerously spiked chestnuts, lay in loads upon the ground around them, piercing unassuming shoes now and again 🤪

It wouldn’t have been a trip into Doesburg on a chilly day, without having gotten hot chocolate from ‘De Waag’  😉🖤

The pub/café/restaurant that lays claim to being the oldest in The Netherlands.

It was just as delicious as we remembered, and we enjoyed it as we began our walk back towards the house.

We took a different route home from the one John and Inge took.

Mike deciding to show me the paths he used to walk, the soccer field he’d played on. The school that he once attended.

The pond where he’d feed the ducks with scrap bread from the store.

Where friends had lived, the house where he’d been born and lived his first few years in.

It really was a walk full of historical monuments and information 😉

Evening brought with it some preparations for the next day, as Mike and I would be taking the father-in-laws RV for a ‘ Tour de France ‘ minus the cycling and whatnot 🤪

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
