Afraid of spring getting out too fast of its corner, I decided to take advantage of this grey day and wear my purple velvet blazer. My check shirt is also too thick for a regular spring day. But what I am saying? Nothing is regular when it comes to weather in the Netherlands. Anyhow, this outfit really colored my day.
Den Bosch has its Amsterdam moment of fame. Some of the canals are right there, on the way from the central station to the center. You can’t miss them. Others are however either hidden under the houses or located on small streets off the beaten track. The Bredehaven (literally the Broad Harbor) is one of those streets. It harbors the Maritime Association of Den Bosch which organizes one of the biggest boat event yearly. Last year I woke up one Friday and could not believe my eyes, the boats overflowed the canals, not the other way around. The Broad Harbor, which is actually not so broad, also accommodates the best boathouses in Den Bosch. Those you can catch a glimpse of in my pictures.
Walking in stiletto on an unstable dock was not my best idea ever. It however had its charm. This photo shooting reminded me of a Romanian poet writing about lacustrine dwellings and violet sunsets.
“Lazy, frivolous people in the street
The whole crowd looks violet
The whole town violet.”
