Bon anniversaire Astrid !
Picturit: Thank you very much, Martine.
so we know what is going to be for dinner and lunch tomorrow, Astrid. unless they are releasing the fish back into the water?
Picturit: I think they want to have a meal, Ayush. But I doubt if they have to go by the fish-shop to buy dinner instead grin.

Yes...Men At Work! Nicely noticed, Astrid.
Picturit: I hope they caught some fish, Ray. I saw them moving around from one spot to the other.
hmmm .... the boat has your name ... fan club ??
Picturit: Absolutely, Ryan. I have many fans all over the place wink......
I love the shades of gray... A very nice shot, Astrid!
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. I waited for the white boat to come "into the picture".... The 4 guys in the boat moved from spot to spot. Maybe they caught some fish.

I like this scene very much! Enjoy your birthday tomorrow!
Picturit: Thank you, Philine. There are so many boats on this river (close to Rotterdam) and there is always something to see.
I am looking forward to the weekend. Dinner with friends and the family coming on Sunday.
I LOVE what you see when you ride your bike to the Biesbosch, Astrid. YAY you!
Picturit: Ginnie it is amazing each time I go there, the same route, I see new things. Flowers are changing, the young cows are growing, sheep all over the place, birds singing.... I never have a dull moment there.

Well let's hope they catch enough for a good meal

H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y for tomorrow Astrid. I hope you have a really good day
Picturit: I hope so too, Chris. (my opinion, to the fish-shop and home after they are done fishing..)
Thank you, Big Bro. Tomorrow we will have dinner with friends and Sunday the family is coming here. It will be a good weekend.
Joyeux anniversaire Astrid ..bravo pour la photo !
Picturit: Thank you very much, Claudine. I so love the boats.

The good ship Astrid looks a little overcrowded to me. The Beisbosch looks like it is a bit of a playground Astrid.
Picturit: This river is the Nieuwe Merwede and Rotterdam is to the left, Gorinchem to the right and the picture is taken here : 51°43'45.7"N 4°42'02.1"E looking north. In the west there are this nature area with lots of birds and cows, sheep....
There are also many beehives for there are many flowers too. A great place for canoeing.
Happy Birthday for tomorrow. I would rather be on the big boat than the little one grin
Picturit: Thank you, Bill. You are right. Those guys were standing up... if you catch something that will be quite the circus-act to stay upright..... grin

Bon anniversaire Astrid
Picturit: Thank you, JP. We will make a great weekend out of it smile
Is that boat named for YOU??? I am surprised to see several people on that small one. Nicely composed. Friendship
Picturit: Indeed.... I have many boats with my name on it wink....
I hope they did not fall in....

I'd rather been on the cruiser. I wonder if the anglers caught anything?
Picturit: I did not wait long enough to see if they caught anything, Alan.
I was at my turning point with the bike and had something to eat and drink and after that I went home.
My son stopped by for one of his old reels to go fishing last evening. He broke his regular one. Alas, no fish at my door this morning.

Happy Birthday tomorrow. Sixty-five had been great so far.
Picturit: sad.... then you have to open the freezer again, Mary wink
Thank you, Mary. 65 should feel great. nothing that I need to do anymore smile
Happy birthday to your grand-son too.
For fishermen, like our Chris, this would be a lovely way to pass the time of day. Have a very happy 65th. birthday tomorrow, oh to be that young again smile
Picturit: Thank you, Brian. grin... I know 65 is young even where I live here. My son called me today and said, you have the right age to be a grandma now.. smile
Tomorrow they come to visit, his wife had to work today.
The fishermen had good day I think, not too hot yet.
i am sure that the Bass fishermen are annoyed with the pleasure boat coming so close to them Astrid...
Happy Birthday dear Lady...Penny and....petersmile
Picturit: I think so too, Peter. The boat was in between two shorts "dams" in the river and because of the current the fish will not be at the bottom but "swim"... that boat could have taken more space between them...
Thank you, Peter. We have a great time.
Very orderly Dutch trees!
Picturit: I love it that you noticed. We have a lot of those trees so we know that they are planted...
Love this image Astrid! Happy birthday! smile
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Martin

I find the two boats to make a wonderful contrast. Size, number of crew, carbon footprint,etc.

May you be woken with your favourite breakfast, by your favourite wife, tomorrow morning. Van harte gefeliciteerd.
Picturit: Thank you very much for your good wishes. We will go out for dinner soon... I was woken with a kiss, does that count too. (I am always the one who makes breakfast over the weekend)
Dank je wel en een goed weekend.
