Thursday was a rare sunny - and super windy - day, so David and I went for a hike at Het Twiske, a nature preserve in Noord-Holland. It was the first day in a couple of months that David's been well enough to go for a long walk.
A house is framed by open cattle gates at Het Twiske.
An afternoon nap (photos taken with a long lens, so as not to disturb the sleeper).
Cyclists and horseback-riders taking advantage of bright sunshine and warmer temperatures.
Hiking to build endurance and stamina.
An ancient tree bearing tiny buds, ready to burst forth for spring.
Reeds blowing in the wind.
These photos are from just a small area of Het Twiske. The preserve includes a big lake for sailing and swimming, picnic, playground and recreational areas, a cafe and a windmill, among other attractions.
