Biesbosch National Park

Filed under: May — Hennie van Heerden @ 12:05 pm

Finally!! After a full day of constant sailing yesterday, we had arrived at the Biesbosch; my all-time favorite wetland area in Holland. It felt so great to be there again!! On our way there we came across a Seagull that tried to swallow something big but I couldn’t make out what it was. Actually it looked like an octopus, but that’s probably stretching my imagination a little bit too far 🙂 I blew the shot up to the last pixel but still can’t make it out!

For the first time this year the weather was gorgeous and on our arriving day we got treated to a most beautiful sunset with warm light all around. It really made our first trip out in the little rubber boat with its silent electro motor, very special! Even the Beaver, for whom the Biesbosch is one of the few habitats left in Holland, made an exciting appearance!
I just love this area!!
