Trip Report Whispering through the Weerribben. Photos

Jump to last reply

On Thursday we hired to fluisterboten (whisper boats) and had a lovely time exploring the Weerribben National Park in Overijssel from the water. The boats have a small electric outboard, and can go onto small waterways forbidden to noisy, smelly petrol outboards.
The weather was just about perfect and we (DH, DS, 2 GS, plus SIL and BIL and me) all had a thoroughly good time. Sore bums from the wooden seats, but a great time.

We set off from Ossenzijl and spent 4 hours pottering along watching wild flowers, a wide variety of dragonflies, different sorts of butterflies, all sorts of water life, and storks circling overhead.

Anyway you can see a few of the photos here: http://s28.photobucket.com/user/Bargwynbu/library/Fluisterboot
The photos were all taken with quite a short lens, from a wobbly boat, so the stork ones in particular are not brilliant, but I like them :).

I hope you like the photos, and that I may encourage some of you to escape Amsterdam occasionally.
