A DAY ON A LAKE.

This one is not about flowers but about vacation. We spend a day on a boat in a natural park in Holland, called THE BIESBOSCH with lots of creeks and sweet water, not salt water.

There is so much water all over Holland (the netherlands) that almost every family here has one or more boats.

A FAMILY OUTING

ALL SORTS OF BOATS AS YOU CAN SEE

Alas it was too hot for most animals and all we could see were some gull’s and ducks and a few swann’s.

We enjoyed the cooler wind on the water and watching all the other boats.

Have a great week all and thanks for visiting !

 

A SHORT VACATION(1)

We went away on a short vacation to England and Scotland. I have been in London once for an exhibition in the Tate Gallery some years ago but I never visited England and Scotland before. We used the ferryboat, also a first time experience, and we had a lovely vacation.

We started in Hull and drove to Windermere where we had a boat trip on the lake, and we were not alone…..there were masses and masses of tourists but of course it is the middle of the holiday season here in Europe.

But enough said, here are the pictures.
