Jolie forme pour ce bateau. Je vois qu'il y a beaucoup d'éoliennes dans le fond.
Picturit: Thank you very much. It is one of my favourite places to be.

Lovely shot, Astrid, even though my eyes are pulled to the Wind Farm.
Picturit: we have a lot of those wind farms... even in front of the beach in the sea... and in the polders.
Certainly an unusual one, Astrid! What is that little vessel?
Picturit: I could not get the exact one but it looks like this. A very elegant ship to sail with.
A lovely little boat, Astrid.
Picturit: It is and a treasure to sail.
Now you've really got me curious as to where this is, Astrid. Was this from your birthday weekend a couple of years back, near your former stomping grounds??? It's WONDERFUL.
Picturit: Yes indeed, what good and great memory. I always love to watch these sailing ships...
Thank you kindly, Ginnie.

It looks to be a very smart craft Astrid. He might have made it out of matchsticks in his garage over the last 20 years
Picturit: HA, I know what you mean. This is about the same model....

I think the horizon looks OK, Astrid
Picturit: I think too.... we have some places where we have 'parks' like these.
The boat looks like this (almost) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KswhSNu9SDQ

A beautiful Dutch barge against the backdrop of great skies and a wind farm. Nu lust ik een broodje garnalen smile
Picturit: Doe ik met je mee... I love it when picture 'wake up' some emotion. This was in Huizen. I lived in Hilversum and my dad worked here... always great to be back for some memories.

What a peaceful image of a lovely, suny day!
Picturit: This is Huizen and I love this place, we often walked here when I was a child.
I LOVE that little sail boat with the wooden mast. The boat may be wooden as well. Sure do love this sky.
Picturit: I think it is a steel barge, but all the other things are made of wood. I could not find the exact one, but it looks like this with sails.
Indeed rather strange looking little craft but it is a nice setting, although I might feel a bit uncomfortable sitting right out at the end of that jetty.
Picturit: These are sailing very comfortable and although this is not the exact boat, this is it full sail.
This is one of those wonderful old Dutch fishing boats isn't it Lady P?
Picturit: The bigger brothers were used as cargo ships...
This is about the same boat, full sail.
I see all the wind turbines on the horizon Astrid.
Picturit: We have a lot of those also in the North Sea, just in front of the coast.
This is about the same boat, full sail.
i like the boat with the crooked sails Astrid... that a good place to have a wind farm... where the people can't hear the noise from home....petersmile

These boats are great and yes those windturbines make a lot of noise, not everybody knows that AND they have a constant electric field around them....
my eye was caught by the windmills...

You cannot 'escape' from them... they are all over the place.

That sky! And love the "tiny" windmills in the background! And your very own dock! smile
Picturit: Don't you love it. This is what I love about my country...
