Foto Vrijdag: Signs of Spring

Ice Cream Man
Spring may well be over, based on the weather today and the forecast for the next few days. But at least I got to enjoy a tiny bit of the beautiful spring weather we had last weekend. As I walked past Lepelenburg Park last Sunday, I saw this ice cream van pull up beneath the tree. I loved the bright pop of red beneath the soft green tree against the beautiful blue sky. I was also very tempted to stop for an ice cream, but figured I’d be good, especially since I was planning on going to sit on a terrace and enjoy a beer or two later!

I’ve got a Caturday post for you tomorrow, so stop by if you want to see a cute cat.

And because I can’t look at this photo without thinking of Tom Waits’ song, Ice Cream Man, here you go:

Italian Ice Cream in Utrecht

Italini in Utrecht
I wanted to mention that there’s a new ijssalon that just opened in Utrecht. Italini Ijssalon, part of a franchise with locations around the country, opened at Nobelstraat 215 on 1 March. They’re offering free samples on Saturday and thought I’d pass along the information to anyone in town who might be interested. I think we’ll probably check it out. They’re open every day, including Sunday, from 12:00 to 22:00. It looks pretty inside, and hopefully the ice cream is just as tasty.
