No comment

The weather in May was terrible, we've had almost everyday nothing but rain, our garden ánd our camp site field have turned into a swamp. Frogs occupy our vegetable plot. Our slovak friend Katka said, in rather fluent English, about next days weather forecast (rain, rain, rain): "no comment". This seems the only thing which can be said about it.

With most camp site facilities finished we now take turns in weeding our Nordmann trees.


Before our pony Trol came to live with us he stayed in a herd with two other young stallions and several mares. This spring three foals were born, one of them is definitively Trol's son.

Soaking wet

Last year our trees were suffering from drought, this year they are almost drawning.

Say "cheese"

We've started making 'tvaroh' cheese, a fresh cheese which is easily made from raw milk and rennet.

Smrdi - Smurdy - or simply 'Smur'; we are considering keeping our billy goat as our mascotte or as a special camp site attraction....

Long days

With a camp site to be opened in three weeks time, we make long days. In the evening we sometimes make a short 'prommenade' and admire the beauty of our little paradise.
