We had a cold but dry hike around the dunes near the North Sea today. The deer were out in full and allowed us to get pretty close this time.

The Lights of Sinterklaas and Christmas in Amsterdam

December 2, 2021 Leave a comment

Sinterklaas is a Dutch thing; basically a person symbolising a holiday on Dec 5&6 that goes by the same name. Before that holiday starts, the canals get some light artwork as part of the Amsterdam Light Festival. At the same time, some Christmas lights start going up, although I’ve been told that most Dutch people won’t put up a Christmas tree or decorations until after the Sinterklaas day of December 6.

So, Piper and I have captured a variety of lights in Amsterdam seen in early December.

There is an off leash dog area in the sand dunes at the south end of Zandvoort called Duinlandschap Zandvoort. This was our first time there and the dogs loved it.

I assume this bike owner will reconsider parking on this corner with the front tire in the street.
