Sunday 11 January

Attended church for the last time this visit to Holland. Joined in the Holy Communion, and said good-bye to my fellow choristers over a cuppa afterwards. In the afternoon, we went on a longish hike to the Zijpenberg, a 340 ft high hill in the woods. We passed the old swimming pool at Beekhuizen. It is now a nature reserve, for watching pondlife. Only thing is, it's January, so any pondlife will be hibernating. The walk was rather up-and-down, but it took us about an hour to get there. It is a good viewpoint, with undulating hills tumbling down to the river valley in the distance. We went back along the periphery of the heathlands, a little way to the north.

Sounds like it is almost time for you to go back to your own home. So nice you have the opportunity to visit with your family like you do. I always enjoy the pictures.
