Maastricht Zomer

Or, at least, it’s starting to feel like it… finally matching what my May calendar picture (left)  says the weather should be.

I took a leisurely bike ride around town and through the surrounding countryside to enjoy the warm weather and sudden crowds.  It was the first one this year, lovely to feel the wind and the sun, see the water sparkle, smell the flowering trees and farm animals again.

The weather may finally have turned a corner, along with (knock on wood) so much else in life.

   

Oh, and the drug boats have opened again.  It may only be for a few days, though: the owners plan to sell to buitenlanders this weekend, and the City Fathers promise enforcement actions if they try.  ‘stay tuned…

More pictures, as always, at my Flickr site.
