* Moon

  A moon-lit night.           More closeup.

  The moon was at its perigee (closest position), happens once every 20 years.
  We don't have a long telephoto lens so the picture on the right is the best
  we can make. See also here. 

* Ski Kleinwalsertal

  After a long hiatus we went again for ski in the Alps. The high temperature (12c)
  worried us at first, but resulted in a sunny vacation.

  Ski under sunny skies.

  Our hotel is in the valley bottom right.

  Snow angel  -  Austrian beer

  Unexpected meetings on the mountain: Lisette's cousin and friends, Eddie, Helga.

  More friends & kids

  Susan with Christianne    -    Tessa learned the most about ski this trip

* Carnaval

  It was an hour wait to get into the tent to see the local Carnaval band
  "Harry en de gebroke zwiegelkes", but it was worth it.
