Ik weet niet wat dit mocht zijn. Ja, ik ben met Bill heel eens.
Wouldn't it be interesting if the platform shot the vessels skyward.
Picturit: HA.... smile Never thought about that, NOW I am smiling from ear to ear. I have that picture in my head now grin...
Have a great weekend.

You do get some most unusual shots, Astrid!
These are lifeboats. These look funny as they are all equipped with black purses (for the women).
