It’s a crappy photo, shot from my bicycle, but it shows what I enjoy about cycling our daughter to school in the morning (at least when it’s not raining): on most mornings I encounter a heron, or swans, or as today both together, somewhere along the path.
Made a beautiful walk around Valkenburg today, ending with a visit to the castle ruins.
Underneath the outer wall on the hillside is the old Jewish cemetery of Valkenburg. In the image is the gravestone of Maximiliaan Bachrach, ca 1881- 08-10-1894. There is one other visible grave. There are other graves as it has been in use from 1792-1925, but the ground is ever shifting, due to the caves below the hill, so other graves likely have sunken into the ground over time.
We went to the theater tonight. E had received tickets as birthday present from cousin S, who sits on the board of the local chamber music festival September Me.
It was of course a socially distanced seating arrangement.
A beautiful opening concert by the Ragazze Quartet with compositions by Caroline Shaw, specifically written for and premiered at this festival tonight.
