One of my Dutch friends had her birthday and invited a couple of Dutch "ladies" for coffee and lunch and ...a surprise. We were all very eager to find out what the surprise was. She took us just 5 minutes with the car to a lovely spot. We drove down into a mountain gorge, parked our cars along the stream and went walking.
This is me, with my backpack!
The night before there had been a lot of rain and early in the morning it was still very cloudy. On our way to the gorge, the sun peeked every now and then through the clouds.
Here it is still cloudy, a very moist atmosphere, with the sun trying to break through.
And there came the sun!
A little pool was formed with extremely clear water. You could swim in there. The water would be freezing though. When my husband was a teenager they went there to swim.
In the winter, a waterfall is coming down here. After 3 months of no rain and 45 degrees Celsius I am surprised that that there is still water!
. This was a real surprise. Such a beautiful spot.
We had a nice walk and after that we were of course hungry and went back to my friends place for lunch.
What a nice day!
