It was pouring today and tomorrow there are storm warnings 🙂 But while it was still dry we drove to a nearby forest and went for a little walk in the Dutch bush…
I had to chuckle, because Dad, being such a Dutch-Aussie, brought his Jacaru hat with him 🙂 He’s been wearing it wherever we go, which has actually been quite handy because we can’t lose him – just look for a worn out brown hat bobbing around and there he is!
We parked across the road from the path into the woods, and said hello to these cows:
Isn’t the house behind them gorgeous?
Dutch cows look pretty similar to Aussie cows…. 🙂
The woods are not cleared here, not much chance of bush fires. So any trees or branches that fall down are just left there to decompose or become homes for animals….
Loved the mushrooms in the photo above….
Mostly we were looking for heather…
Found some, but the flowers were not a very vibrant purple, so they didn’t come up too well on the photos.
Dad found something that reminded him of his childhood….
Hard to see, but it is an acorn still attached to a bit of branch… I also used to find them as a child and pretend I was smoking a pipe 🙂
Next time I will give you a yoyo update… and some pics of a wool shop we went to 🙂
