Unexpected Winter Cycling
We are supposed to be in Spain but mother nature has intervened.
Just as we were putting our bikes on the luggage belt, all the computer screens went blank. Then the word we didn’t want to see flashed across the check-in screen.
A little snow (well, little by Canadian standards) and most of the flights in the Netherlands had ground to a halt. All around us people stomped their feet and got upset. We considered having a tantrum but decided there was little point.
Instead, we rebooked our flight for Sunday and went cycling and photographing. Under a white blanket of snow, Holland is a beautiful place.
Some people had to push…
These kids were having a blast, with the paths entirely to themselves.
Bikes were a pretty good indicator of how much snow had fallen.
Some cyclists looked like ghosts in the snow.
We spent about an hour taking pictures and then headed home. We’ll try this vacation thing again on Sunday.
