All good, Astrid, but the plantation backdrop is spectacular!
Picturit: We are on the Danube close to Bratislava. More trees like that all over. A wonderful cruise.

Boats in need of rescue?
Picturit: Demolition. These boats are pulled ashore and taken apart and the parts are sold.
Astrid.
The front hoe is in the water, where it will get rusty. Just sayin". smile
Picturit: I don't think they will let it get to that, they are taking it apart and the pieces are sold.
Astrid.
I congratulate you on the Astrid Astrid, very clever.
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Sir. The Astrid is waiting for demolition too.....

Ces bateaux ont l'air un peu "fatigués".
Picturit: They are pulled ashore and taken apart. The pieces are being sold.
Astrid.
This is terrific! Love the forest, and the old dry boat..
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. These people are the 'demolition' team and they sell the iron and the other parts.
Astrid.
That digger is in danger of sinking Lady P.

Love the dog!
Picturit: I think so too, the demolition team is there to take it apart. I think that dog has a great time running around.
Astrid.
The things you see/saw on that river cruise! WOW. But again, it's your signature that takes the cake!
Picturit: Thank you, Ginnie. I always are hunting for the unexpected... and this is a no-brainer for the signature..you are my biggest fan.
Astrid.
Wow, that look precarious.
Picturit: Indeed, I never saw a demolition doing this at the border of a river... I do hope they are no pirates...

A busy scene you have caught, Astrid. I had to search for your name, and there it was in big characters!
Picturit: smile.. yes indeed, a perfect place I though. There was a lot going on. The demolition team did already half of the boat...

I think this poor old thing might have come to the end of its life Astrid. The dog looks bored
Picturit: I think so too, after a good many years it traveled the rivers/canals and now it will be melted down to something else.
The dog has nobody to play with...

Oh, what did happen to this boat? I admire the firm Astrid!
Picturit: The demolition team is taken the boat apart to sell the pieces and get some money.

Reading that is about demolition, I'm surprised that the resale value of recovered materials from the vessels justifies the hire of the crane. Mind you, I suppose if there are enough old boats to haul out, It would make more commercial sense. Shame that the good ship "Astrid" is about to be broken up.
Picturit: Don't you wonder, Alan. I would say keep the boat in tip-top shape and it will serve you for years. I think the owner went either bankrupt of did not want the ship anymore. I think that what you see is the front of the boat, with my name on it and they just cut the barge in two and on part is still 'in the water'....
Astrid.
Unusual to see black boats. I am sorry your namesake is about to be junked.
Picturit: This is a link of these types of boats. These are the cargo ships that 'sail' the rivers and canals in Europe. I think that the ship in the picture is already cut in half and the one part with my name is the front and the back is still 'in the water'....

There's no doubt this has seen better days.
Picturit: Absolutely, Brian,

That looks like a boat mincing machine!
Picturit: It does. They already cut the boat in two and the one is waiting to be taken away with that trailer.

Uh, oh! Something is wrong here! But those trees in the background are an awesome sight.
Picturit: Thank you so much, yes I know they cut the boat in half....

Now that is one big "Astrid" boat!
Picturit: ...and cut in half sad....
Astrid.
Great documentary capture, Astrid, I love it, and it was interesting to read your explanations in the other comments.
Picturit: Thank you so much for visiting and this was quite interesting to see what happened here. It took me a while to discover this is one and the same boat...
Astrid.
