Pilgrimage 3: If dunes could speak…

This is a very short note to my most loyal readers. There is not much time to write blogs during this pilgrimage. The chapters for the book about Jan van Boeckel are very slowly taking shape. In the mean time I’m literally gathering heaps of information. After visiting several places in Holland and meeting different family members even more puzzle pieces are falling into place, especially thanks to uncle J., uncle A. and aunty I-y. And a spontaneous visit with cousin A. brought me to places I needed to visit in Haarlem, including the dunes, all accompanied by inspiring conversation.

I’m off on to the next stage of my pilgrimage. ‘Till we meet again!
