Winter fun

It is cold but the sun shines and it is great to be outside now. Always when there is a lot of snow here, everybody is going to the dyke to have a sleighride down with the children.

We used to do so when our children were young and as an adult to go down too. I saw the parents still doing the same, feeling yourself a child for a moment.

The Gooi-lake was frozen in one night, our province had the coldest temperature of the whole country  -22.9 C (-9.4 F) and since 1956! It is weird, in one week time we are living in a complete other world.

At the horse-riding centre this horse was making his rounds quietly.

  1. Mooie winterfoto's. Ze hebben uiteindelijk toch gelijk gekregen toen werd gezegd dat we een koude winter zouden krijgen. We zagen het al lente worden met al de crocussen boven de grond.
    Fijne Zondag nog!

  3. Oh my gosh Bieb, I have been following on the news about the dreadfully cold weather in Europe but these pictures are so much more effective. I really don't blame you for not wanting to go outdoors when it's like this, stay indoors and keep cosy, like Sophie the cat on the heater!

  7. wow. We haven't had a bit of snow at all.
    I like that the Newfoundland was walking with the dog. I have to wonder what they were thinking?

    Hope you are well, Bieb.
