It is wonderfully quiet on the river. There are not even waves on the water. There is hardly any wind and that bit of wind comes from everywhere.
Maas bij Hedel 01
Two men are fishing and chatting on the other side of the water. To my right bank swallows nest in the straight clay bank. You can hear their friendly chatter.
minute 11; A man walks his dogs and asks what 'that' is and points to my blimp. "What do you hear," he asks. "Everything," I say and he continues with his dogs. He didn't really like my answer. But I don't feel like talking on such an evening. Next time put on my grumpy face again, people won't talk to me.
The men across the water begin to speak louder and louder. I can now literally understand them without headphones.
minute 14; Two sailing boat with small engine pass by. A nice mess. Moments later, the beautiful concert of the waves on the waterfront.
minute 25; All of a sudden the young cows look curious. They eat some grass and look around a bit silly.
