Reasons for going to the Netherlands, at this time ( 6 December, 2009 – 16 January, 2010 )
included one major one, and then several others.
Among them, to have a look around Egmond Aan Zee, where my late father was looked after, for a period to help him recover his health, when he was a very young boy.
Egmond is located a very short distance from where I am staying.
I might just wait to see if the snow (particularly the frozen snow) disappears, before I return to Sydney, in nine days’ time!!
