Dutch summer: living in the moment

Fifth day in row with blue sky, lovely temperatures and sun! Wow, it almost feels like summer. Checking the weather forecast: rain for the whole next week. Ahhh, that’s what I get for living in The Netherlands.

Dutch summer

Live in the moment, enjoy it while it lasts!!

Yesterday, I took the last two hours of from work. After dinner, I drove to the beach and enjoyed a delicious drink on the beach and watched a beautiful sun set! It was a perfect evening! So perfect that this morning upon waking I decided to take the whole day of from work! I might as well enjoy this good weather while it’s here! The minute I finish this post, I’m taking the tram to the beach again. To enjoy the sun with my good friend Vessi. And tonight we will go to a party in Den Haag to drink cocktails with Emilie, Lynn and Molly. Life is good!

Here’s to living in the moment!

Beach volleyball – I should pick it up again….someday!

Paddling in the water
