At the Lake of Banyoles

P1010934

Some six months ago I posted this photo of a man reading at the Lake of Banyoles (Catalonia). My husband and I have always been in love with this lake and the small historic town alongside it.

And suddenly there was this superb, affordable flat that has a view on the lake. We discussed it for two days, but in our hearts already knew that we wanted to go and have a look at the house.

To make a long story short: we are going to move to Banyoles. This means we have hectic weeks ahead, so posting will not be one of my priorities for the next two months. But I will be back with more street photos showing what life is like in this terrific spot. Then picture me reading on a bench next to the lake!

Picknick

In between the streets in the historic centre of Dordrecht there is an inner court that once belonged to a monastery. Now children use it as a playground, people come and sit on one of the benches or have a picknick like these neighbours. A quiet place in the middle of a busy city.
