A Street in the Sun

A Street in the SunI walk along Voetiusstraat fairly often, as it’s the street that leads on from the side of the cathedral. No matter which angle you approach it from, it’s always a lovely street (with great rooftops). A few weeks ago, as I was walking home and the sun was shining, this particular view of the street caught my eye. The lovely building at the cross street with the mullioned windows, the corner turret on the building across from it, and the typical Dutch stepped rooftop, all made an interesting visual line. This is complemented by the row of Pyke Koch lamps laden with spring flowers that stretch off into the distance. If only the cars weren’t there.


We’re two days into the new wine bar and so far so good. Things were a bit slow yesterday during the Netherlands-Australia football match, but we did have a lovely couple come in — one was a reader of my blog and the other gave me a great tip for future research!

The evening picked up after the match and we had a good evening. We hope things continue to build and appreciate all of you who have stopped in so far. A Street in the Sun

    • We’re splitting our loyalties between Netherlands and Italy. Last night’s sign said “Hup Holland Hup”. When Italy plays it will say “Forza Italia”. If they come up against each other, we’ll just talk about wine. šŸ˜‰

  1. I’ve been traveling for a bit and came back to the blog to find a picture of my apartment! Haha awesome, glad you enjoy our tower šŸ™‚

    • Ha! I may have a bit of envy. šŸ™‚ By the way, you wouldn’t happen to know the name of the orange/brown/white cat that hangs out around your corner and the street, would you?

      • We’re not on a first name basis. I usually pet the calico one that sits on top of cars. He doesn’t have a lot of orange on him but he’s always friendly.

        • That’s the one I meant. It’s been a while since I’ve seen him and couldn’t remember if he had any orange. Give him a pet for me the next time you see him. šŸ™‚
