A Morning In The Dutch Biesbosch.

At 7AM on a stunning and chilly wednesday morning ‘Ome Kees’ (uncle Kees, or basically my second dad) and I went for a canoe in the beautiful Dutch Biesbosch in Sliedrecht. Gosh I love this place, especially when it’s such a still and sunny day, and no one else is around.

The only things you can hear are the crackling of the reeds, the strokes of the oars on the water and the droplets slipping off the front of the canoe, the flapping of bird wings and the occasional fly or bee playing around your ears. It’s literally only 15 minutes from where we live, but it’s like you’ve entered a whole different world. I need to come here more often.

And yes, it really was this green. So so beautiful.

A little rest by the water…

This is just one of those places I will never tire of.
