Hazy evening

The sun did come out later in the afternoon, making it slightly stifling. We had dinner early, and headed off for a walk through Velp towards the heathlands north of Rheden. From there, it was an easy 3 miles back to the village. Distances aren´t huge, and the paths were paved. This being a moderately hilly part of the country, the Veluwe is a mecca for cyclists, racing cyclists and mountain bikers. It is just amazing. Would you fancy flying down a 4 ft wide track at 35 mph, on tires that are 1 inch wide? No thanks.

Pictures on Flickr as per usual. When you access this link, you´ll also get old Thomas´ pictures, as this points to all pictures taken today.

I'm not so certain about going quite 35 mph, but otherwise?  It looks and sounds fantastic!  I miss my bicycle.

Another rainy cold day here.
Loved the photos as I always do, especially liked the rhododendrons and the caterpillar.
Take care
