s the title states: I am intent to let this be the last big post for winter in NJ. Why ‘big’? Well, of course, big girl camera – hahaha. I still have tons, did I say tons? I mean mega-tons of photos from this winter. Because after two years of a somewhat meh-winter here in NJ, this time it is a true winter. And in today’s post I am going to share some more of these winter photos with you. And all of them were taken right here at my doorstep in New Jersey. The latest ones only last night, well, Monday night.
Monday morning started with another one of David’s ‘it’s white outside, Dearsis’, and my reply ‘oh no, not again!’. But sure enough I got up and everything was white and getting whiter (if that is possible) by the minute. But in all seriousness, it looked so gorgeous late in the afternoon when it finally had decided to stop snowing. While actually today would have been the better day to take photos, but work work work – no photo time, I stole off of work at 4:30 pm on Monday to catch some of the last light reflecting off the white beauty. But only when I went for a drive today, work related, I saw the full extent of winter’s the beauty. Blue skies, bright sun and glistening snow everywhere, including trees. That is what I had missed in our winter so far. Actual snow that stayed on the tree’s branches. Our snow storms were always accompanied by so much wind that the very next day all snow had fallen off the trees and they just stood there as barren reminders of living nature.
Not so today. This time no wind, but lots of snow on trees. What a sight. Truly beautiful. Did you hear that? I said it: Winter is beautiful. And still – I have had enough of it. So, on Saturday it is vacation time. Time for our pre-spring windsurfing vacation on Bonaire. And so I thought that this would be the perfect time to post one last time (probably) winter photos this season. Before I will be flooding you with all the warm summer, sun, turquoise water and windsurfing photos – hahaha – anyone jealous yet? Sorry… really, I am sorry. I really did not mean to make you jealous, but I am just sooooo ready for a vacation and am so looking forward to it – sigh. I hope there are not going to any hiccups. And no jinxing either. But as always we are in good spirit and very much looking forward to the weeks to come. I hope that I will somehow keep in touch. But in case I miss answering your comments or commenting on your blog post – please forgive me, this girl is going to be busy vacationing – in a few days 🙂 And with that hopefully good bye to winter in NJ.
