That is what this photo (taken by my sister-IL, Joelle) reminds me of.
It makes me all sentimental and nostalgic.
A beautiful photo of a moment in time. They were watching the antics of a kingfisher, or so I've heard.
It did bring back memories of a Swedish TV series that I watched as a child. The Children from Salt Creek, which was written by Astrid Lindgren (Pippi Longstocking) especially for the Swedish TV.
Vi p°a Saltkr°akan . It was shown on the Flemish TV channel from 1964 and repeats for many years after.
Talk about feelgood TV. This was it. And I recognised it even as a young child.
The dog's name was Boatsman.
