Floodfields living up to their name…

The last couple of weeks the water levels of the Rijn and Waal have been very high. When we went to one of our favorite walking spots, Kim and I found out we couldn’t actually get to the river side. Or that, y’know, the river side had crept up into the flood lands.

Should’ve brought our swimsuits!

This is the place where the water actually flooded into the fields beyond it. Looks impressive, huh! I could feel it tugging at my boots.

Kim managed to get past it safely enough though.

I love the old boats they’ve got lying around here.

Pretty in the setting evening sun!

Usually this is all grass in summer…. pretty lake now, though.

No idea what flower this is, but it was gorgeous in that sunlight.



It smelled really good, too.
