Parnassia in the Snow
Yesterday afternoon DB wanted to go for a run. All the sidewalks were snowy and icy so the only place to easily and safely run was at the beach. I’m still down with this dreadful cold so my contribution to the event was playing taxi. I really wanted to go to the beach anyway. It felt like a long time since I was at the beach and I missed it.
We had a break from wet weather yesterday. It was sunny all day. Cold, but sunny. We didn’t get to Parnassia until about 2:30pm and by 3pm the sun was sinking fast and the shadows were long. It was so nice to walk on the beach and take a few photos.
The photo above was taken from outside the Parnassia cafe, just above the beach, looking south. The photo below is looking north. In the distance you can see IJmuiden. The air was so clean and clear that everything seemed closer than usual.
DB ran for 45 minutes. I walked for 30 minutes. Hopefully I’ll soon feel up to running too.
