Woke up this morning and checked my Geocache app for the nearest bit of hidden treasure- ok a rusty tin containing a list of finders and a couple of Japanese trinkets and maybe a code – and guess what ..there is one in Hanwell Library and the Drayton Court Hotel . But CBA to do it and anyway it is no fun without the whole Dam Gang .
Dam was fab and wonderful and one big huge fat barrel of stuff ( couldn’t think of a word to sum it up ) .
We barbecued on Rico , ate at De Kas and Hotel de Goudfazant ( which isn’t a hotel ,but a huge old warehouse across the water ) ,played Boules, Scrabble, Contract , cruised on Jacob’s boat ( sort of ) , had pre, post and during drinks at The Brouweriji, got wet , got hot , snoozed on the deck , got locked in the toilet ( John ) ,ate homemade corn pancakes for breakfast , saw the Roddy Muller exhibition , went to The Stedelijk ( or in my,Jacob and John’s case-played boules outside it ) .
But the best best best bit of all was being with John, Jacob,Florence,Freya and Simon …nothing makes me happier
