Tranquille la balade.
Picturit: I would not mind spending the day like this.
What a wonderfully relaxing image!
Picturit: Thank you and indeed this is the way to spend an afternoon.
What a very nice boat, that does look relaxing.
Picturit: This is a perfect way to spend an afternoon...
i like the Astrid flagsmile... it's a beautiful old pleasure boat and i love the bumper edge around the side... it looks like the old fashioned round queue rails that they hooked to posts to let people in or out....petersmile
Picturit: The 'bumper' is characteristic for this kind of boat... this might be a brand new boat... they still build these...

Must be an interesting book!
Picturit: I think so too...
Please don't tell me you're already ready for summer again???? I STILL WANT SOME SNOW!!!

But seriously, this is so Dutch, and I, too, love your signature!
Picturit: This came from my unassigned bin... sad I like to have at least 5 inches of black ice on this canal... and skate.
Thank you....
Hum...vive les vacances ..
Picturit: Indeed...soon again...
You would think that he would put his shirt on Astrid, or was he hoping to start a trend? I like the rope 'bumper' around the boat.
Picturit: The rope bumper is characteristic for this type of boat. The boat is very shallow, easy to go 'any where'..

Happy days heh Astrid. Soon they will be moving out again and the nights will be getting shorter - which SUITS ME great!
Picturit: I would not mind at least 5 inches of ice on this canal, so we can skate, after that it can rain warm water and the sun can come too smile

Oh, such a relaxing scene - and reading a book might be better than looking at the smartphone. Like Ginnie I want some snow!
Picturit: I like to have some black ice on this canal and I would not mind skating... so in that regard, first ice and maybe a dusting of snow...snow ruins the ice....
I agree on the first two things.....
Thank you for your beautiful card, which arrived yesterday, wonderful poem with it.

Good to see someone reading a book, Astrid, but you would think she would look at the scenery. Very nice shot
Picturit: I know, but maybe she 'has seen it all'.... and maybe later she will have an eye for her surrounding... first the book smile
Ginnie bought me Inferno from Dan Brown, gives me something to read at the Mad House....

Looks like a perfect way to relax to me.
Picturit: These are very comfortable boats and the weather was perfect..

It looks a comfortable boat, but she should have champagne in her hands.
Picturit: Maybe later.... this boat is known as a 'sloep'... Dutch design.
What a gorgeous boat. I would love to spend an afternoon like this.
Picturit: We have a lot of these boats, there can go through shallow waters, almost no keel.
Not a bad way of spending some time.
Picturit: I do agree with you... it was a wonderful afternoon.

It looks like they are having a lot of fun. I love the lighting in this image smile
Picturit: This was on a very nice afternoon with good weather. A very nice and quiet way to spend time together, both doing what they like.
a relaxing cruise...
Picturit: It looks like that...
I'd be enjoying the ride... not time for a book read. Nicely taken Astrid.
Picturit: Thank you Jacqueline. It was fun to see this scene, nice relaxed at slow speed, enjoying the moment.
