A few days ago, I notified a handful of friends of the event known as De Gavers Uitgepluisd. Two of them were interested and wanted to meet up with D and I.
This afternoon, M’s family of four came to our house for a short visit before proceeding to the lake. I have not seen her for years, and was surprised by how much her children have grown!
When M’s family left, D and I biked to De Gavers and meet up with them there. We spent our time chatting, tree climbing (the daughter), and pedalling a canoe packed tightly with twelve people. 😛
At around five in the afternoon, D and I met up with another friend K and her family. Because it was already late, we did not have time to participate in the free summer activities together. We did spend the brief time that we had chatting, laughing and promising each other that we shall make plans to meet up soon.
After I bought my jar of local honey, D and I sat down at the café for a drink. I had a Goedendag, one of my favourite Belgian beers because of its association with good times.
After our drinks and getting a few free fruits at an info stand, D and I biked home leisurely. As luck has it, I did not have to cook dinner this evening because the neighbours were doing an impromptu barbecue as a closing of the speelstraat. So, for a fair price, D and I joined some of our neighbours and had ourselves a lovely barbecue dinner.
What a day. 🙂
