A Sunny Day in May

So far it has been raining a lot and we had some strong winds. Horrible weather for the time of year! When the sun finally came out we decided to drive to the Biesbosch. It’s a national park and has one famous resident: the beaver. There are around 300 beavers living in this park in about 100 lodges. The dense vegetation and abundance of water makes this park a beaver paradise. They also have a trail designed to educate children (Beverbos) about these creatures. It’s a nice area where you can go on adventure and learn everything about them. There’s even the possibility to climb through the tree tops. Despite keeping our feet on the ground that day, we didn’t see any beavers (not sure anyone ever does!). But we did see some turtles. Enjoying the sun, just like us! 🙂

Luckily not all the days are dark and grey though. The day before King’s Day we had some nice weather and decided to visit Radio Kootwijk. It’s both the name for the transmitter park as well as the village around it and the area is now open to the public (the transmission station is no longer in use).

A short break for the kids (and us)! School holidays for a week! We decided to take some days off as well. So we could have a nice little getaway and not just sit around the house all day.

But what to do when all the museums, attraction parks, restaurants, cinemas and playgrounds are still closed? Exactly, go outside! We rented the same accommodation again as we did before (last Christmas). A nice lodge in the middle of the forest. Perfect to keep the kids and ourselves entertained for a couple of days! 🙂
