Summer time

We have the most wonderful weather here with temperatures up to 30 degrees C (86F). At the IJssel-lake was a competition between sailboats.

The brave ones took a swim in the, in my opinion, still cold lake.

At the horizon you can see the fortress island Pampus which I visited a few weeks ago at a cold rainy day (look here). You never know what weather it will be here when you have made plans before.

  2. Just to be out in the fresh air enjoying the sun on your face, after a long winter, just makes one feel good. I could go for a dip myself. Lovely photos and brightly coloured.

    Glad you all had a lovely Pentecost weekend! Indeed, for trusting the weather in The Netherlands and making plans for outdoor acitivity is being very brave.

  6. Ever since SC's post the other day, now I am more aware of the flat horizon you see all the time.

  13. 30C is the perfect summer temperature Marianne, although the water in the lake somehow does look a little chilly :) Love to see the colourful saiks of the yachts on the horizon, such a summery image.
