Photo update


Photographs on my previous entry were all taken with my phone......here are some more taken using the camera.


She definitely had a propeller when we set off!
As ever we saw some stunning sunsets

Since 1997, winter has not been severe enough for the
Elfstedentocht
so a water based version is held in autumn instead.
It just so happened to be starting in Sloten
the day we moored there

Many beautiful boats to gaze at.



Caution, lady driver!

down to wait for a bridge to open
Locktite....don't think it says
"for propeller fixing"
 on the user instructions

Phew....what a beauty!
