Early this morning my husband and I grabbed the dogs, hopped in the car and headed to Zuiderpark. The sun had just come up and we were both itching to get out and enjoy it, and what better way than a nice walk with the dogs. Boy were we in for a shock when we got outside. It may have been sunny but it was FREEZING!
That didn’t stop us though, and thankfully we were both bundled up enough to stay warm.
I was messing around trying to take my photo in the window and he hopped in the car. So it turned into an odd but cool photo of us both. I like it.
I took a lot of photos in the park as well…
It was cold and misty there too and the boardwalk was even still covered in frost.
I had to give props to the people who were out there jogging in that cold. That’s some serious dedication right there.
We learned the hard way that while there were some nice views to be had in the shaded areas, it was bitterly cold there, so we decided to stick to the paths that were getting the sunshine, it was much more pleasant!
I didn’t realize until I got home but I have a photo of this same scene that I took almost a year ago. It was March 24th, 2010 and look at how much greener and clearer it was. I remember that day, it was warm and I was out biking in just a t-shirt and a light jacket. I hope it’s that warm again at that time this year!
There were a lot of birds. Even a dead one by a garbage can, which was gross and I did take photos, but I won’t post them here.
I love this photo, it almost looks like I’m really in the middle of the forest.
It really is so nice walking around there. It amazes me how you can be right in the middle of the city but feel so far away. I find it so peaceful, especially if you go nice and early and during the off season.
Check it out! Sneeuwklokjes!! When I saw those I didn’t care that I snapped the photo a little too quickly because my hands were freezing, or that the only feeling I had in my nose was that it was running… I saw flowers blooming and I saw sun.
This is a good thing! A very, very good thing.
