We celebrated Pierre’s 76th birthday in Horst, with friends, in the GASTENDONK, a very nice restaurant, with a variety of biological products.
2017/06/30 – My eldest sister invited us for a celebration dinner @ Bistro De Stadstuyn, where we often come, also with Lady Mary Stewart-Wilson 🙂
As entrée for my sister and me a “Platter Stadstuyn”. For Pierre: goat cheese from the oven.
As main course for her: salmon with italian pasta.
As main course for me: a beef carpaccio XXL. For Pierre an entrecote with French blue cheese.
As desert for me: a “Grand Desert Stadstuyn”. Pierre and my sister: coffee.
2017/02/28 – Birthday on shore…
Birthday on shore has been rare since 2011. In such occasions there was a birthday package: breakfast by room service, champagne, a present, a wish card and flowers. The table mates always arranged a dinner at the Captain’s table. Before that I had a party, in my cabin or in the Observatory lounge. World cruises edition W1201, W1401 and W1602.
