Winter

As a kid I remember going ice skating almost every year. On big lakes (well as a child they do seem really big), trying the follow my dad for about 5 minutes, which was impossible, since he was way faster. But since 1997 we haven't had such a winter anymore that would give us the opportunity to really go ice skating again.
We decided to take the advantage and yesterday we went for a long spin and it was great. Beautiull day, sunny, many people on the ice, such a great atmosphere. we went on the Spaarne, the long canal crossing the city of Heemstede, (my city) Haarlem and Spaarndam. As a kid you never really appreciate it amazing wonders of nature, well yesterday it did. I loved it!

  2. Hi Maja,

    I used a regular camera, but then altered it in Photobucket. Where did you go ice skating?

  3. Nice, have to check it out...
    I went on a little lake near Regensburg, where I live. It's the same place I used to go as a kid. And you're right, it used to look soooo much bigger :)
