There have been some highlights though, and I'd like to remember them here pictorially
The day in June we found the tiny ferry going to nowhere..and took it to the other side
The World Cup taking over our harbour for nigh on a month
Koos's birthday, 30 June, with his son Kasper and Mo and Craig
A lovely July evening with friends Jitze and Manette when they stopped their travels in Breskens, Zeeuws Vlaanderen (about 35 kms from my litle house)
Then Mo arrived home with Charlie boy.
On 22 July, we had a magical day out in Seclin and Mons en Pévêle in northern France. Here Koos is taking a photo of the canal side.
The big event in July was the arrival of Anne Marie and Austin with whom we spent three fabulous days
At the end of July, Mo and Craig came to help us with the Hennie Ha.
And finally, in early August, my sister came to visit and took this photo of Koos and I in our favourite Belgian village of Sautour.
The rest of August, the month of my holiday from work, was sadly a wash-out in every way, and the only day worth remembering was a day trip we took to Oostende on the 28th, where Koos took some of his most beautiful photos ever. On the way, we stopped at a place called Lisswege, supposedly the prettiest village in Belgium. Here it is.
This looks like quite a lot for one summer, doesn't it? Maybe I shouldn't complain after all. It was just August in the end that could be struck from the record and wouldn't be missed. For my part anyway.
Enjoy your Sunday everyone. Autumn is on its way and the changing colours will be accompanied by those wonderful smells of damp earth, falling leaves and the tang of frosty mornings. I find it melancholy but beautiful too.
