Ruby & I cycled up Boterdijk towards the river in Uithoorn old village. We saw a cat calmly walking along the ice. It was -4, so all the ditch waters were still & iced over. We saw lots of groups of ducks, geese etc standing around on the ice. The river was flowing though.
We wanted the Ijssalon, but it’s been shut overwinter and finally opens today! So we ended up in the Rechthuis (court/lawhouse) Hotel, which we have previously avoided as it don’t look cheap. It has a lovely terrace onto the river. Obviously we were inside in this weather!
the sunlight was actually burning me a bit thru the window and my cardigan. Hurrah!
we had a fabulous lunch, sketched and played hangman.
Then we went to Ruby’s Dr appointment, and we have taken another babystep towards Getting her Sorted!
and finally Fred made us a fish pie with crayfish in. I tried a crayfish. Urgh, never again!
