The Admiral is seeking a drydock so he can perform a little hull maintenance.
Picturit: This admiral was in this float: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P55Rdf3N0-o
It was such a fun day.
Its rusty old thing, the boat that is, Astrid.
Picturit: This rusty thing was in this float https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P55Rdf3N0-o
I added the YouTube. It was great fun.
WOW! There's not something you'll see every day! Love your name placement!
Picturit: I added this Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P55Rdf3N0-o Elizabeth and in sec. 35 you can see him row. This sailor was in a fleet of "everything that can Float"... hilarious what we saw....
Lief is (among) other meanings "Darling".... grin...

Ce marin d'eau douce a un bateau bien rouillé.
Picturit: I was surprised that it even floated.....
What a great memory from 2010, Astrid. I'll never forget it!
Picturit: That was a great birthday celebration and we had front row seats. Amazing day, Ginnie.

He looks to be a very nautical person Astrid. Maybe he was in the Dutch navy years ago..
Picturit: shhhhhh don't tell anybody, Chris, but this is the Dutch Navy..... grin....
Money has gone to all kind of other nonsens and all our PM can do is laugh.

Yes, Lief Astrid! A funny scene, typically Amsterdam! I admire your handwriting skills!
Picturit: This made me smile, Philine. It is one of those things you like to see once.

Hahah!!! Looks just the sort of sailor you would have seen in the days of the old sail boats that crossed the seas in search of the New World.
Picturit: Indeed so and when I saw him I thought he is related to Popeye....
who knows he discovered Amsterdam.
TRès original ce Monsieur ..sourires !
Picturit: It was a great float with all kind of happy nonsense, Claudine. It was fun to see many people enjoying themselves.
Have a great weekend.

I had to look twice to see if he was real, Astrid!
Picturit: The real deal, Lisl. And rowing too....
This is a bit like our raft races only they don't seem to be racinggrin

Great fun Lady P
Picturit: No race here, they try to keep themselves from drowning at some point, HA.
I enjoy this kind of fun nonsense, Bill.

Brilliant best that chap is wearing Astrid, and I see they spelt LIFE incorrectly. I think I saw him in the video. Wonderful stuff.
Picturit: Don't you just love it when people don't take themselves that seriously, Chad, you and I would fit in perfectly. "Lief" is darling/sweet/nice and all the words that relate to that..... "lief is life" would make a great Tshirt......
Thank you, Chad.
That is a very nautical hat he is wearing.
Picturit: I think from his great grand father, Brian, who knows....smile
There are some very unique floats in the video. I like the fellow,s legs.
Picturit: Those legs are called " sea legs"....grin.....
I was glad I found the video, Mary.

Hoe leuk is deze matroos ;-0
Fojn weekend
Picturit: Dit was zo mooi om een keer te zien, Marjolein. We mochten op iemands boot zitten dus we hadden mooi zicht op de hele vloot.
Goed weekend.

Lief Astrid

De rose matroos had je in de gaten, denk.

Don't step into his rust bucket.
Picturit: I try not to do stupid things, so getting in that boat was one of them, Louis.
It was so much fun with all those idiots HA.
Lief has a strange last name Astrid... good composition...

i enjoyed all of the very diverse boats in the Sail Amsterdam parade... lots of imagination there....petersmile
Picturit: "LIEF" is darling, nice, sweet etc. Peter. Thank you, it is one of those things they do with a Sail happening every 5 years.

i imagine if he was in full uniform, he would look quite different, Astrid. love the fine points at the end of his moustache.
Picturit: I think so too and I love his moustache, he did pay attention how he was going to look.
It was a fun day.
I could be me, without a beard smile, and without a boat. sad
A beautiful portrait.
Picturit: Ha, nice to meet you then wink... Don't be sorry about the boat, it might sink anyway.
It was a fun ride.
He looks like he belongs in another century.
