Tērvete

Our Text'art group spent 2 great days in Tervete, a Latvian camp which Lauma looks after in the summer.  It's a lovely spot on the Rouge River just northwest of Hawkesbury.  We did several nice walks, one up to the hydro dam that no longer is used for producing electricity, but has a very loud showy falls.  It was a relaxing two days, with lots of good food and friendship.

A look into a hive
We learned a few things about bees.  That they don't
like to mess about on cloudy days, that smoke calms them, and that drones don't sting.  Here are a couple of shots of the
frames from inside the box.

Thank you for documenting so well our little get-away, Dianne, and thank you to Lauma for sharing her slice of heaven with us. So many lovely moments to remember.

I so enjoyed having you all at a place where I grew up and feel so much at home. You all sitting on the roof looking at the night sky was the best! I hope that it may become a more familiar place to you all in the future. Not just to sit on the roof, of course...
