Of course it is, Astrid...everyone knows that!

Did you try the lime-flavoured one...they are dee-vine!
Very nice image of this boat, Astrid! I enjoyed the video! Remarkable process isn't it!
Picturit: Every time I see a bridge open like this I am impressed. Not that I like to wait for 4 minutes 30......
But it is as it is. The transportation by boat is very important in Holland.

Ohhhh, how fun, MLMA, to see a video of a drawbridge we cross often. I don't think it's ever been up, however, in all our times there. You got yourself a lovely boat to put you name on! smile
Picturit: grin...we just got lucky.
We use a bridge sometimes as a white lie, 'I am late, because I had to wait for the bridge.....'

Ahh - Arkel, your former hometown Astrid!
Picturit: Indeed, I am with my back towards Gorinchem, it is only 15 minutes by bike on the bike track, on the right.

One of those big Dutch barges with a fine stern to wiggle smile

Nice to see part of your world this morning. Sometimes I get stopped by a train, but it isn't as sweet as this. smile
Picturit: Thanks Ruth. I never get tired of scenes like these. Just looking at the boats is great.

Oh this must be beautiful The Netherlands where the rivers are higher than the land.
Picturit: It is Chad, sometimes it is scarey, but that keeps the blood running grin.

Hare majesteit's schip Astrid in de rij voor doorvaart bij de Rijkstraatweg. A beautiful day as well.
That's a great looking boat, Astrid! Nicely composed smile
A very fine boat and I like the video of the river bridge in action.
Cette péniche est superbe, magnifique photo !

That is a splendid boat and I love those clouds.
I like how peops can use that bridge as an excuse to be late... that's funny.
Very Dutch; and why should it not be at Gorinchem ;-)
great view point. a pleasant day to be outdoors, especially in a venue like this

with the gentle river banks, it seems like the water isn't so deep.. nice capture.
