I assure you that it is very beautiful weather in Iceland very often. Yes, I am slightly prejudiced about Iceland because it is my heart’s homeland but, still, I have been coming to Iceland for many, many years and I have lived in Iceland and I have been walking in shorts and a short often.
Having said all that I do call this kind of weather Icelandic weather. Sorry, Iceland.
The Reitdiephaven marina came to life the last couple of days. With the sun and beautiful weather the boats also come out.
The lights on the soccer-field/football-field are the strongest lights in the immediate surroundings. Earlier this evening we were brutally shocked by the noise of an exploding something. No idea what it was but the sound was very loud. Blue smoke of an explosion was visible for a rather long time but nobody was visibly watching it. Close encounters of the fifth kind.
Supposedly, this is the last day -sofar- of the grey and rainy days. It will be warm and sunny from now on. Ofcourse, we’re talking about a finite phenomenon.
It is very cold outside but here in the Reitdiephaven marina it looks like spring is about to happen. That could be wishful thinking, though.
The boat with the black hull has the Groningen flag in top.
If it keeps on snowing like it does now, there will be no skating on the Reitdiephaven. Last year it was a lot of fun. Winter is not over yet, so we might see some skating still this year.
It has been freezing for a few days and the ice on the Reitdiephaven looks stronger and stronger.
