Yesterday was a beautiful day with the sun shining and the temperatures climbing up into the teens. That meant, of course, that all of Utrecht was outside. We went to dinner with friends — more to come in another post — and the cafés and restaurants with outdoor seating were filled to overflowing. This is an old picture I took at Fishes, a fancy fish shop on Nachtegaalstraat. The cheerful colors and the thought of light, fresh, crisp flavors of summer meals to come is quite encouraging, even if the weekend weather isn’t looking as nice.
