In late February and March of this year we continued making our annual photo trek to Tanzania, Africa, Doug’s 42nd trip to Africa, Nancy’s 17th. But this year was very special because we had our son-in-law, Bill, and two older granddaughters, Heather (then 14) and Lyndie (then 12), with us. We spent two days in Amsterdam exploring via train the museums and windmills, many of which are still working and producing. One of special interest was a windmill which since the time of Rembrandt has ground the paints used by the old masters for their oil paintings. We went in search of Doug’s painting of Yellowstone Falls, Queen Beatrix’s favorite spot in America, presented to her in The Great Hall in Washington DC when Doug was White House artist. Her wish was for it to hang in a prominent museum in Amsterdam when it left the Great Hall. We found the Rijkes Museum under complete renovation and closed for the next two years, so we’ll have to try again. The next ten days were full of excitement and surprises as we all photographed leopards, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, migrations in Tanzania, and had a wonderful time. It was made more special by the presence of our friends who joined us and our guide and trip host, Nigel Kinsley-Heath. Next year in 2010 we plan to take our daughter, Holly, who hasn’t been to Africa since she was 9 years old.
