2014-03-22 - Ice skating for the last time this season

Yesterday we went ice skating for the last time this season. Spring is coming so the ice halls are all closing. We drove to The Hague yesterday (no traffic problems due to the National Security Summit yet!) to go skating at De Uithof. It wasn't particularly crowded, but all the usual people were there. We didn't go for a very long time, I guess I skated for about an hour and I took it easy. I ended up skating 45 laps which is 18 kilometers. We now have to wait for about seven months before we get to put on our ice skates again. Lets just hope Spring will be beautiful without much rain so we can go out for regular hikes again.

 

2014-02-02 - Hiking @ Het Weegje

On Sunday the second of February we went hiking at Het Weegje, a small park with a lake near our home. The weather was pretty nice (more spring then winter) so we decided to do a slightly different route than we usually do here. Along the way we saw various water birds such as the swan, the Eurasian Wigeon, and the Great Crested Grebe who were fishing. We even caught one on camera carrying a fish! We hiked somewhere around 5,8 kilometers on this nice winter day.

Bellow are some pictures and a GPS track log:

2014-03-08 - Ice skating @ De Uithof

Last Saturday I went ice skating at De Uithof again. The ice rink in Rotterdam is now closed for the summer season and will reopen its doors next winter. It had a very successful first run and we are looking forward to going back there again at the end of 2014. We had a busy schedule last Saturday so we didn't go skating for very long. I skated 64 laps which is 25,6 kilometers. We will probably go one or maybe two times more this season before it is time to stash away the ice skates.

 

2014-01-24 - Hiking @ Goeree Overflakkee

On Friday the 24th of January we went hiking together on Goeree Overflakkee which is a peninsula in our province. We didn't hike here before but thanks to Roots Magazine this part of Zuid-Holland was brought to our attention. The hike started out at a small harbor close to the sea. From there it went through the dunes after which we eventually ended up on the beach from where we hiked back to our starting point. The entire hike was about 6,3 kilometers across diverse terrain. The weather was very good with clear visibility so we enjoyed the environment around us very much. We ended up spotting a Barnacle Goose, a Canada Goose, a Common Merganser, a Tufted Duck, and a Common Pochard. We had a great day hiking at this new location and we plan on going back there again in the future.

Bellow you'll find some pictures and the GPS track log:
