Before lunch Hans & Rags went for a walk in a different direction, this time driving to a nature reserve a short distance away. It was quite chilly but every once in a while the sun peeped out from the clouds forming 'God's fingers” on the landscape as shown in the photo. The farmhouse pictured is for sale and with about 4 hectares of land is priced at about A$2 million!
Many geese and white swans were seen but the majority of the wildlife remained either hidden or had not arrived from the northern areas yet.
This is traditionally, at least for Hans & Marion, family day. Due to Marion's time spent in the kitchen a delicious meal was served which we shared with her sister's family Mina, Jan and Marcel, and Hans and Marion's daughter Dusjka and granddaughter Natascha. The highlight of the main meal was a pork fillet covered in apricots in a pastry covering served with an assortment of vegetables and salads. Absolutely yummy!

Hans & Marion had organised a family get-together for us, with cousins and their partners all arriving for the afternoon and evening. A great time was had as can be seen by the photos.
