Today we took the streetcar into the city of Den Haag where we saw the very famous painting by Vermeer, The Girl with the Pearl Earring. It was housed in a beautiful gallery full of Dutch art. It was fascinating to walk through and experience Holland in this way. We also went to an amazing exhibit that was a panorama of the big beach here - unbelievable! I love art-full days!
I finally caught up with the first episode of Outlander. Wow. I knew I was going to like it, but I didn't realized how much I was going to LOVE it. I haven't been this taken by a series for a long time. Really great to have a new show with a strong female protagonist. I can't wait to watch episode 2. This is one series I can see us all liking.
Reg and I picked up some painting supplies in our hood but also walked over to our old/new community centre which went through a major facelift during the olympics. To join the centre cost just $4! There's a swimming pool, lots of drop-in classes, regular classes a gym… There is even a drop by art afternoon regularly which I can't wait to go to. Now if only our stuff would arrive so we can actually move into our new hood!
