Tembo ahoy!!

Filed under: May — Hennie van Heerden @ 11:47 am

Today, for the first time again in what seemed ages, we took the Tembo out on a trip again. After being totally against a boat (I regarded a boat as a floating hole where you throw money in) now I’m her biggest fan! It is so totally awesome to take her out on the beautiful rivers and wetlands of Holland. The country looks so much more beautiful from the water. So peaceful and tranquil.

We didn’t go far as we had a dinner appointment with friends tomorrow so we drove her down to a place in the neighborhood we came to love for its abundant birdlife: Rottige Meente. After mooring her, we went for a walk until I suddenly heared a familiar sound: Bluethroat!! And what’s more, it didn’t fly off as we carefully approached. The only downside was the still very hard light but even so, I was delighted to find this beautiful bird, that is so high on my wishlist!!
