And another post about what I’ve been doing. I’m sorry but it seems I’m getting more and more a boring diary-blogger.
We have been having most unusual sunny weather here, and last Sunday, most unusually, Groningen was the hottest place to be in the Netherlands, so when a friend called me to spend the day by the lake I was all for it!
We went early in the morning, but were very lucky to find the last spot I considered reasonable next to the water. Thinking it over I have come to the conclusion it is the best spot to be found. It was secluded, with sun for M. and shade for me. There was a tiny opening down to the water, and we were at a little inlet from which we swam out into the lake.
A look towards the lake,
I had provided the picknick: Bread, lemonade and water, humus, pesto, feta, grapes, and more!
While lounging about by the lake-side it is very important to have a bodyguard with you. I mean Zora of course 🙂 Zora was very upset when we swam out into the lake, after many anxious attempts, she jumped in and swam towards us, looking very unhappy and trying to herd us back to the side.
She was very happy when we decided to get back onto dry land. So much for our possessions being protected by my killer-attack-dog!
No, Zora, you are not allowed to share my blanket!
No, really, NO!
Zora doesn’t really get wet; only the outside of her fur-coat gets wet, but a serious grooming is necessary after a bath.
Zora utterly exhausted!
But when she hears somebody coming she’s immediately ready for attack!!!
No sneaking up on us!
Notice how she has managed to partially get onto the blanket!
Zora always gets what she wants.
It was a very lovely day, and I can’t believe I have been so stupid not to have done this for years!!!
