Sundaymorning at the campsite where i stayed with my friends for three days. Like we do for years.
The campsite is near Giethoorn.
In Holland Giethoorn and the surrounding is called “Little Venice”
When you look at the pics, you will understand.
The area is speciall for the reed, that we use traditional as covering for roofs. So in these area most of the houses have reed covered roofs.
Anyway, back to sundaymorning, i took a hot shower at the very nice sanitair building on the campsite and made a caffé in the small caravan where i also slept.
Also made a sandwich, checked mi bike, and than i went for a little tour ( from Giethoorn via Bet Schutsloot to Zwartsluis and back to Giethoorn.
I was lucky, because the weather was exellent, sunny warm, and just a little wind.
Most of the time i followed the small path along the small waterways. My eyes were to short to see and remember all the great views.
So, it’s good that i made a few pics from time to time.
Halveway, in Belt Schutsloot i stopped at a nice terrasse with a view at The Belterweide (a lake) and had a Caffé.
That restaurant called “De Waterlelie”,a nice flower that grows on the water. I made also a pic of Waterlelies.
Anyway, i hope that when you look at the pics you will imagine how i enjoyed this tour.
