Queen's Day

The skies were leaden and the temperatures low all throughout the whole of last month, but as if by magic, on the very last day, traditionally known as Koninginnedag or Queen's Day, the sun came out, the skies turned blue and the temperatures soared to the mid-20s.

I'd gone up to Amsterdam to join in the festivities with a friend of mine, but because I'd forgotten to charge my phone, and had foolishly left my camera at home, I can only give you the most fleeting of impressions.

Unfortunately this morning, the weather's gone back to being cold, wet and miserable.
