So one particular weekend, we put on orange T-shirts and headed down to Pond Gardens at Ang Mo Kio-Bishan Park where the water play area features dikes and sluice gates and mounts or "dijken, sluizen en terpen" as we call this particular type of landscape. We even brought a picknick lunch of bread and cheese for the full Dutchie experience.
It was a resounding success.
Man Tamtam irrigated the blue mounts, Big Boy and Blondie got flushed away, nobody stuck fingers into small holes in dikes and then had to stay there overnight, there were little babybel cheeses, there was tree climbing, daddy climbing, running-splashing-laughing, and everybody got very wet and very tired and very hungry, so then we ate lots of cheese and went home and napped.
We may have gone swimming again after the nap. We Dutchies like water.
