She got here Saturday

Jientje got here at 5:20am Saturday morning - so the first thing we did was go to have breakfast. Egglectic Cafe - good stuff. And I took her picture with my little Fuji point and shoot.


And then the waitress took our picture, with my little Fuji point and shoot.


And then, in the parking lot, as we got ready to go down to the lakefront, she whipped out her weapon. And I took a picture of her, again, with me little Fuji point and shoot.


But then came the moment when the little Fuji point and shoot ran out of gas - overwhelmed by what I asked it to do.


It became time ... to break out the Big Dog.


Above shot with my Canon 30D.

Jientje's notebook computer crapped out on her sometime early in her trip, so she hasn't had the time or capability to post to her site. Look for her site, Heaven Is In Belgium, to be updated sometime Wednesday.

And I will have more pictures tomorrow.

Hi Lou,
Please tell Jientje hi. I can't wait to see her pics and 'hear' about her adventures in her words.

Beautiful shots! I like the little point and shoot shot as well as the Big Dog. :)

Best wishes for lots of fun times.
