Spent yesterday with family in two locations in the Netherlands. A birthday was one occasion. My dad drove us to a town near Amsterdam, which meant going down the A12 motorway to Utrecht, and then north up the A2 towards the capital. It was incredibly busy, and driving nose-to-tail at 60 mph is a bit worrying. Particularly amidst wide and large lorries. We duly turned off short of Amsterdam and took a shortcut through the countryside. The second was a get-well-soon visit on the other side of the city, but by that time it was past 8pm and traffic had thinned out.

Took a few pictures, mainly of cats. When you follow this other link to the pictures, you will also come across three pictures of our last cat Stapper (which I have referred to as Strider in translation before). The grey-and-white is one of my sister's cats, also dead a long time ago.

You know I love the cat pictures.  Strapper looked like a cat I had when I was a little girl named, Pepper.   I bet you're not used to the heavy traffice of the big city.  Does Stornoway even have a traffic light?   Linda in Washington
