smile A nice Cappuccino sounds wonderful...
I love the light and the glass, a great reminder of a wonderful weekend.
Is it Wednesday already, before we know it is Friday 3.30P again grin......
erm... for you a Latte Macchiato?
Ginnie Hart: For me a latte macchiato, yes, with something lekkers. smile I did love seeing their spread there for their evening coffees. That was fun. Bedankt, MLMA.

Well, count me in for a tasting! The glass reflects beautifully in the delicate lighting.
Ginnie Hart: You're in, Jess. The whole set-up was like a model begging to be photographed. smile Thanks.

mmmm looks good to me!! and NO my cat isn't gone lololol i LOVE her, i don't care if she terrorizes hubby lol
Ginnie Hart: They had specialty liquours from the Groningen province, two of which we sampled. Quite delicious! Thanks, Elaine.

LOL at you and your cat!
Koffie met een likeurtje..... Het is nooit mijn ding geweest, ik drink alleen maar bier en wijn.

Beautiful still life!
Ginnie Hart: It's not usually our thing either, Marion, but they had 3 likeurtjes from the Groningen province and we tried two of them. One of Astrid's favorite drinks is the Juttertje from Texel, for special occasions. I've actually acquired a taste for it. smile Bedankt!
I'll have mine without the coffee tongue
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! grin

It looks rather charmant French! But the toning looks Nederlands koffie- bruin, warm, cosy,and echt gezellig, and I can well imagine your lovely koffie- pauzes in this nice mill-ambiance!
Ginnie Hart: We had our specialty koffies after our dinner meal the night we arrived, Philine. They had specialty liquours from the Groningen province and we decided to try 2 of them. It was fun...not somethinbg we usually do but it was a special occasion, as you know. smile

Well, just Latte Hazelnut for me, but no alcohol, that will do fine Ginnie... meet me at the cafe?
Ginnie Hart: If we had these we would normally have them after the dinner meal, Chantal, but just on special occasions, as this one was. But for a morning break, mine would be a latte macchiato. Actually, I love hazelnut, so that sounds good, too. I've never heard of a latte hazelnut. I'll have to try it.
This is lovely Boots, off to buy some Brandy to go with coffee for later.
Ginnie Hart: On weekend nights is when we usually add some Bailey's to our evening koffie, Mick, but this occasion was special, so we tried the Groningen province (local) liquours. It was a treat after our evening meal. smile

It sounds so weird to have someone other than my family call me Boots. grin

Boulard Calvados and Gautier Cognac and you are thinking of koffie. If that is koffie, wait for me ... you hear the knocking at your door?

Beautiful atmosphere in this picture - I can smell the stuff - I am not referring to koffie. They are excellent koffie companions though.
Ginnie Hart: I figured someone would recognize these bottles, Louis. smile The 3 on the left are the Groningen liquors, of which we tried two. They were actually very good...similar to Astrid's Juttertje from Texel. It was a fun celebration. smile

Looks so warm and inviting - I'd love to settle into a corner with one of those big brandy glasses and just relax for a few hours.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Ingrid. I can still feel the mood of this lovely, cozy place. smile
Hou, it is not me who drank everything, not not...
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Ok, I believe you. Just some, not all. smile Merci, Pierrot.
Calvados has a special meaning to me. I'm pleased to see it here.
Ginnie Hart: I just Googled it, Mary. I'll have to try it some day. smile Glad it pleased you to see it.

Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Didier. Merci. smile
A beautiful warm image Ginnie. Lovely reflections of nice warm light on the bottles. The Molen Hunsingo windmill looks like a wonderful place to visit. It looks very welcoming.
Ginnie Hart: It's a treat of a lifetime, Laurette, which I highly recommend if you're ever in this neck of the woods. smile Thanks.

I think I am off the diet now
Ginnie Hart: Just in time, then, Vintage. smile
Une belle série...
Des nuances de couleurs à l'images du contenu des bouteilles. Attirantes.
Ginnie Hart: It was begging to be photographed, Olivier. Merci.
They all look delicious it would be difficult to choose. The Calvados might win. Lovely shot Ginnie and lucky you.
Ginnie Hart: It's a treat we give ourselves on special occasions, Janet...and at home on weekends. grin Thanks.
This place looks warm, cosy and inviting, the glass looks great, I like a Tia Maria coffee now and then smile
Ginnie Hart: Warm, cosy and inviting...exactly, Linda. It was all of the above. Thanks.
The Glen Elgin would go down nicely after my dinner this evening that's for sure Ginnie. I do like this, this is in the style of that famous Dutch photographer Astrid Wijdekop.
Ginnie Hart: I can just see her name on one of those bottles, Brian, can't you?! grin I love it.
The glass reflects beautiful!good shot Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I loved the glass bottles, Roland. Merci.

A real ambience, although I don't like clutter too much, I could probably force myself on this occasion!
Ginnie Hart: Just think of it as an organized 'clutter,' George. smile It was wonderful.

boozin' on a mid-week.. sounds good! haha.. grin nice catch!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Rian. Gotta watch out for some of us. HA! Seriously, it was our after-dinner and dessert drink on our anniversary night...a special occasion that called for something special. smile Usually we don't indulge except at home on weekends with a bit of Bailey's in our after-dinner coffee. I'm sure we could always find something to celebrate. Thanks. smile
Very cool shot. Make mine a Whisky.
Ginnie Hart: Okay, Michael. For you, something special. smile Thanks.

I love the interaction between light and glass.
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Sheila. That's what drew me to this shot. Thanks.
With those gorgeous golden colours, Ginnie, you've managed to capture the wonderful warmth and richness of the bar. The ideal place to linger over a drink.
Ginnie Hart: You would love it there, Beverly. A great place for a freindly meet-up. smile Thanks.
