Didn’t I see that coming? Well… it’s the river Maas, it’s not some great exciting wild water experience! We were sitting on the quay, enjoying the sunset, and noticing the waves from afar. I looked at the dry quay and said ‘well, it doesn’t really look like the water ever gets this high up so guess we’re safe’. A second later: SPLASH! Soaked to the bone! And full of seaweed (or something green from the water, anyway) too. Pretty funny sight, I guess.
Hours later it appears everything is fine. My camera still works, everything is all dried up, and I’ve learned my lesson.
