Sky Watch, Skating near the Windmills

This photo was taken three years ago, but this week we could have seen the same picture.Ithought it a good idea to show some of the Dutch skating fever all over the Netherland. This one is taken in Zuid-Holland,where I live near the mills.

Darn, we have no windmills next to our frozen rivers. And right now, no frozen rivers, either.

I love those photos and it makes me miss ice skating so much. How lucky to have so many places to skate.

I do so love how the whole of your country embraces the idea of ice skating Wil. The views of the frozen canals are spectacular too.

On this island we don't have windmills or lakes, or even frozen rivers. Lovely crisp Winter scenes.
