A week with Gail and Steve

We spent our third week of vacation 2017 with friends Steve and Gail from Minnesota, US. We walked in Amersfoort, bicycled on the island Texel and enjoyed Utrecht. After us, they continued on to Paris and Bretagne.

The Danube isn’t blue, it’s green!

We biked for 10 days from Schärding to Vienna along the Donau (Danube), mostly in Austria. About 60 kilometers (36-40 miles) a day.

The garden

With an all-out attack on slugs our garden is doing quite well, even after a vacation of 10 days and little rain. The only thing really new is that I’ve torn up the flower bed devoted to insects: it had been taken over by weeds. We’ve turned it into a bed of buckwheat.
