Roadblocks when trying to get to work are always unwelcome ;-)
Picturit: I know, but we are prepared for them... I leave home 10 minutes early.

Such obstacles in your way, Astrid...is there a conspiracy? smile
Picturit: Oh absolutely.... the moment I turn the corner the lights go on and the bridge goes UP..... sometimes I wonder if they still have to build the boat that needs to go through grin....
Astrid.
Well at least you have some interesting patterns to gaze at while youwait!:!
Picturit: That is true. These are the obstacles I expect to have on my way to work, that is why I get up at 5 AM.....
Astrid.
Phew, what an impressive door Astrid! Great capture.
Picturit: Indeed, Richard... and sometimes it takes a long time before somebody will close/open that again so that we can go to work.... However, when we are too late we always can say: 'The bridge was open' HA....

What actually is happening here, Astrid?
Picturit: On the way to work I have to cross 2 bridges, this is the second bridge and it operates quite often early on, that is the time most barges start coming through. Sometimes I am not that lucky to have a free pass, I have to wait.....
Like I told Ray, sometimes I wonder if they still have to build the boats before they come through... grin..
Astrid.
The wonder of Dutch engineering! It never ceases to amaze me.
Picturit: I do love this view over and over... and the engineering is amazing,
The waiting is where I sometimes have the problem with.

Work? What's that? Ahhhh...yes, I vaguely remember smile this must be frustrating for you but for the rest of us it makes for a great image.
Picturit: Do I have to worry about your short term memory wink...
I have to admit sometimes it is annoying, but then, the view is amazing and the engineering blows my mind....
...and we are used to it, I calculate at least 10 minutes extra leaving home early...

Oh good grief, a boat loaded with emergency sausages for Droitwich is about to pass!
Picturit: I know, scary isn't it.... I got out of the car and wished them a 'bon voyage'...

I was really confused, but then I read your funny comments - and I admire your photo!
Picturit: Thank you, Philine. I go from home 10 minutes early each day to make sure I make it in time for work...
Astrid.
Well who put that think in the way Astrid? Were you desperately looking at the clock?
Picturit: You wonder .... I am relaxed for I know I have time enough...and I always listen to the radio...
Astrid.
No arguing with that Lady P, so sit back and enjoy some music
Picturit: I totally agree with you. I never take a different route for the time is the same....I always catching up with the news on the radio.
Astrid.
It is the proper season for swimming.
Picturit: Not with 14 C..... like it is now.... HA summer forget us.
Astrid.
It is certainly an amazing construction, but an irritating one if you get held up quite often.
Picturit: We are used to it and I love the engineering part, that is quite a piece of road being lifted....
Astrid.
It's always something....
Picturit: I know.... wink.... grin.....
I don't panic though... I have time enough, I leave early enough for these 'obstacles'..
Astrid.
Sounds like a great excuse, ha! That sky!
Picturit: Ha, as a child we would use that often, getting in too late at school, remember we don't have the schoolbus, we walk or ride the bike to school....still do.
Astrid.
