What does one do when there’s a possibility to rent an electric driven boat – a ‘whisper-boat’? As there’s a risk of finding one’s mooring-space occupied when…
…returning from a round-trip using one’s own ship the alternative is to have a look at the surroundings by whisper-boat. Only for men – the women refrained from joining.
Even two more, will it ever stop? Yes, don’t you worry! We loved ‘Hielkje’, a former fishing-boat. She’s slightly longer/narrower than 'Hebbes'. Did you…
…know that the star on its bow means, at least: meant in the past, that the ship was paid for – meaning no mortgage or something similar to pay for.
This is what the sun does, colour-wise speaking, later in the afternoon. The two ships that are moored at the island on the opposite side were removed, too, as the fireworks were launched (vertically that is!) from the quay in front of where they are re-moored…
…and a second picture of the beauty that is created on a regular basis by the most important celestial body we know off: the sun. Combined with the earth’s atmosphere, of course.
Our folding bikes were bought in 2007. Brompton, fabricated in England, exported to The Netherlands, bought in The Netherlands (2007), brought back to the UK that same year, carried with us to the Continent in 2012 – and still going strong. Every now and then, well this time is the third time, one’s confronted with a flat tire. Never her, always his bike! Does that tell us something?? The leak was this time situated immediately next to the valve. Difficult!
A precious piece of adhesive rubber (still from a bike-reparation-set, bought from Halfords in the UK!) was created using a pair of scissors and glued onto the leak area. Done!, we thought, and replaced the inner tube. Alas, when using the bicycle pump after adding some pressure a sibilant sound started – initially softly but rapidly getting louder. So we had to buy a new inner tube for € 4,90. By the way, an inner tube in French is named a ‘chambre à air’. Honestly! We tried it in the bicycle-shop and the guy did not look surprised at all.
