Last week on Friday, I was on my way to Haarlem
to the felt exhibition at " meervilt!" there
of the book "Passion Filz"
with German (or German speaking) felters.
when I met with my UK friend Jane in front of the Rotterdam Central Station
there were NO TRAINS going
(due to some alert on the Thalys)
We had a cup of coffee and a chat near the station
but even after an hour there was no sign of any trains leaving.
So we said we could maybe go this week.
Jane went yesterday but I couldn't join her then.
Because the exhibition is only till Saturday next week
I decided to go today (again by bike - boat - bike - train)
when I arrived at the landing stage of the boat
there was NO BOAT going to Rotterdam
because the river was closed by the fire brigade
because of a fire in an old shipyard !
In fact the boat that started earlier to R'dam
came back and went to Dordrecht.
Well I thought it wasn't meant to be ....
but then I thought I could go to Dordrecht and get the train to Haarlem
(ha, I even had an earlier train via that route !)
And I'm really glad it all worked out !
(sorry, I hardly have any names)
Mmmmmm ... my dear friend Gabi Mazaracis
(the inside of a bowl and some mixed media)
And Meervilt! is also a :
well-stocked SHOP !
I'm so glad it all worked out in the end ,
it was worthwhile the trip !
