Skating in and around Nimwegen:
Code red straight over the center of the Netherlands: gale from the West. The second chart shows the rain, thunderstorms and temperatures in C. Until now 3 people died in the outrage of this weather.
Commonwealth War Cimetery Nimwegen:
A last stroll in the city before the events of New Year start (fireworks etc.). Near our house is a large city park. The stadium of the local premier division football club is there, an open air theatre, several ponds and even -temporarely- a circus. But also a Commonwealth War Cimeterary 1939-1945. You can not compare it with the Groesbeek Canadian War Cimetery. Not that well maintained. The tomb stones here are grey and sometimes even dirty. In Groesbeek it is all very well organised, with donations from Canadian families.
Memorable dates in 2018:
Bruges (Belgium), September 27 2003: dinner with (from left to right): David Belrose, Luke Barkhuis, Roel van der Wal, Pierre Bormans, Brian Holden and Rob Chaudron.
On the second day of Bart’s visit, we walked to the town center and peeked in the Saint Stephan Church, to see the two Chtistmas nativity scenes:
Under the König Organ is the scene by the Brethern of Limbourg
In the Choir the scene of Biblical Parc Orientalis:
the city of Bethlehem
The angel with my name is a gift from Lady Helen Mary Stewart-Wilson. NOT from a Christmas market in Hamburg, but from a garden center in Somerset. Setting: beside Father Christmas with a (last minute) set of 80 indoor / outdoor LED lights. Weather forecast: NO white Christmas in the Netherlands…
The picture is the font of the house, the movie the back view :(:(:(
