Overnight at Witte Bergen

On the weekend of 22/23 October Abi and I took an overnight trip to the Valk hotel De Witte Bergen, just outside Hilversum. It’s not far away form us at all — just a 45 minute drive away — but we always like these opportunities to get away and get out. We had dinner in the hotel on the Saturday evening (fine, but the service was curiously slow), and a leisurely breakfast the next morning. Then we parked the car a few kilometers to the south and took a walk through the Hooge and Lage Vuursche forests. I was still in a mood for photograhy, so I brought the big old lumpy DiMage A200 with me to play around with. After the walk we had some apple pie at Theehuis ‘t Hooge Erf.
