Home sweet home

8 Dec ’17

Back home after a weekend snowboarding/skiing with the boys. I still can’t believe we have a view like this from the house. Totally the opposite from what we had before with that forest.

The best is that every evening is different: rain, snow, blue skies, clouds, … I can just sit and stare for hours. It’s always changing.

Afternoon ride

This is just beautiful. And makes you feel great to go out and be able to ride a bike and soaking all this in.

What you don’t see in this kind if picture is that there was a strong wind that was pushing me for the first 30km. But then when it was dark and cold (almost 0°C) and a very strong headwind, I still had a 30km ride home.

But on the other hand, it was totally worth it. Always will be….

Driving

Couldn’t get the car started today. Called the service guys, they came around and had a look. “A flat car battery on cold winter day”, they say. Very common. But that meant that once they got the car started, I had to drive around for at least one hour !!!!! Perfect excuse to drive the touristy drive south along the coast and stop a few times (but keep the engine running) to take some shots.

The sea is all iced over. In this last shot there were a lot of people walking out on the ice. Too far away to get a proper shot. And skating on the lakes with this weather is supposed to be superb. Damned, I have to learn how to skate…… Note to self: move that up on the to-do list.
