More pictures from Amsterdam

I know, I know, I should edit much more ruthlessly but I’ve enjoyed working on these pictures so much I’ve had to split them into two galleries.

    I will never ask for salt or pepper in your home again!

    Please explain about the ‘Puss in Boot’

  • nicola ainsworth says:

    De Poezenboot (lit. Pussy boat) is a cat rescue for unwanted and abandoned animals. They also take in the half-drowned victims of those foolish people who, like me, think that a cat sunning herself beside a pot of tulips would make a canal boat look even more picturesque.

    Visits are by appointment and since I wasn’t a potential adopter I couldn’t go aboard.

  • Chris says:

    You mean I was wrong in thinking it was the Dutch version of the pantomime *Puss ‘n Boots’. Thanks for putting me straight.

  • nicola ainsworth says:

    Bless you, Chris! You must be the only person I know who would have misunderstood the term “Pussy boat” in quite that way.

  • great website. have bookmarked. thanks.

  • Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start
    my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hi Trading Point, it is WordPress & I don’t have any complaints about their services but I must admit to having to ask my son & daughter to help out with any technical problems, best Nicola
