Once the sun starts shining spring becomes much more attractive, with or without corona.
Therefore I grabbed my brother's bike and went for a ride partly across a track along Tienhovensche Kanaal (canal) and Plassen (lake).
Basically just a short walking/cycling path it goes straight through the grass lands.
There are only a few old farms at the beginning and end.
Peace and quiet are the key words here.
Occasionally I saw some ducks and swans pottering about, but they weren't too keen on having their photo taken.
Halfway there's a wooden bench where you can take a break and admire the view.
These yellow flowers - according to my sister 'Koolzaad' (Rapeseed) - were abundant.
Pretty but without any smell...
More wetlands on the left side of the path.
With the 'Trouwe Wachter' historical windmill in the back!
