Huy is gorgeous right now. It's been raining off and on, but every once in awhile, the sky becomes blue. We decided to go feed the ducks last night in celebration.

It made me very happy.

Especially because there were BABIES.

And then the mama must have released some sort of secret call because all of the sudden all 8 babies ran to her and hid under her wings. They all sat there like that, the babies warmed under mama, and daddy standing guard on one foot. It was awesome. And how things should be.

Awesome as well was that we randomly made some friends. There is parking for RVs right by where we were feeding the ducks, and we met a couple who were in town for a few days. It was so great. He spoke a lot of English, and between that and our French, we sat there for quite awhile listening to his great stories while his wife cooked dinner. We got their emails so we can maybe do some site-seeing with them. Isn't that just too fun??

Today we visited the town of Dinant with our friend Ozan who we met in language school. All I knew is that there was a fort there, but I wasn't prepared to come around this corner and see this:

It is like a fairy tale! I expected to see Rapunzel throw her hair down from that cliff! Europe holds so many treasures and I am thankful to have seen another one today.

We rode the funicular up the hill and started exploring the fort.

Men must share some kind of bond when it comes to old war weapons.

Ozan is very brave and crossed the ropes to make friends with this butcher.

More guns.

I love Dinant! I think it is because I didn't really have any expectations of what it would be like, and it just took my breath away.

Here's to exceeded expectations!
