I took off on my bike today for a quick 40 km through Rotselaar and along the River Demer. I’ve blogged about cycling along the Demer before (here) and can’t stress how enjoyable it always is. Winding river, wide cyclepaths, excellently signposted, plenty of benches to rest and enjoy the scenery. What more could you want?
But I was getting very confused as to what season we are in.
At times, with the bright sun, the green grass and the blue sky, it felt like a day in early spring; April perhaps.
When sitting on a south-facing, sheltered bench, it was warm enough for a day in June.
But returning home with the wind in my face, there was a chilly touch of September in the air.
But the end of December? The day after Christmas Day? The heart of winter? At 14 degrees C? Most definitely not!
I send my best wishes to all Discovering Belgium followers and readers for a delightful Christmas and a happy, healthy and successful 2016.
Thanks for your comments, suggestions and encouragements. Onwards to another year of discovering this delightful country together!
Finally, here’s a selfie of me – in action!
