After yesterday's post I got a bit nostalgic and looked for some photos of our "pioneer" time in our new residence Almere This was our house under construction in 1979.
In November 1979 we moved from Amsterdam to Almere and this is how our surroundings looked liked when we started living here. I remember we always had to wear boots to walk through sand and mud as there was no paving yet.
But the best part was that we got a very cold winter with frozen waters everywhere and had our own icerinks around the house. The kids had not skated before but learned very quickly, unlike me, I have never been a good skater and don't dare it anymore.
