Giethoorn meet-up for a day!

I had a meet-up on saterday the 5th of july in Giethoorn in the province Overijsel in the Netherlands... I came just from work that morning... I had to work there friday and I had slept there! My work is in Joure, 30 minutes from Giethoorn... I arrived there around 11 a clock and I had a late breakfast.. Around 12 we went on board and were split up in tow groeps... We could rent the boot till 5 PM. Patricia, Jan, de two organizers, Petra, Lieke and Patricia her daughter, a friend of Patricia Stefan were in the boot I was in.  

Jacqueline, Eef, Wally, Carla,Tom and his girlfriend sat in the other boot.

  The boot was easy to use so we did not need someone with use for the boot.... It was a wonderful sunny day and it was wonderful out there... We had lunch with us and Patrica had made a jummy chocolad cake... We had drinks with us in the coolbox. We made a few stops and had lunch and we went to a place were we sat and relaxed.. A few went in the water and others just hang, talked! Inside Giethoorn was so lovely.. beautiful houses, gardens and it was so great to sail in to that place... There were small bridges that,s to get to the houses... We went on a terras a moment and I had a sorbet... Later on we had to get back.. The time went gone very fast... We even got stuck and the other boot also, because the water was not deep enough.. It was realy funny... Patricia had to go in thewater to get the boot of the undeep place.
Heeey hello there!
.. On the other boot Jacqueline did it... I had to laugh... We arrived later then 5 a clock and the other boot came later, because they had in he end small problem... We had all a lot of fun!

When we came back on land Dennis was waiting and later on Sonja Arrived and enjoyed us for the BBQ... Jan and I went for the last shops things and Lieke, Petra and Patricia were a lot in the kitchen... The BBQ was very noice and Dennis stayed at the BBQ... the cook.. It was ok by him and he did a great job... The salads were nice... We had a talk in the evenning and a lot of fun.. I went back around the 11PM and realy wanted to stay longer... I had a big day tomorrow and I had to ride back....Most people stayed for the whole weekend and a few, like me for a day.. It was a great place to stay for a weekend, but I had work and sunday I had to vised Lemmer for a look at the sailboot for the sailboottrip for august 2009! It took me less then a hour to get back to Leeuwarden from Giethoorn...Patricia and Jan for organizing this meetup.... I had a great time!
