      Oh good, what a relief. And so near, too. You've done well, Thijs. I was very tempted to say yes about staying nearby for 1 or 2 nights, but it would have been awkward, really. Hope you understand.

        no problem Ivy,it was just a thought that if it was getting late, a bed nearby was handy for you too.
        for the sat/sunday night.

          Thanks for all the new "teasers" .... you are really selling me this great country!

          The more I see your images, the more I am sure I will go there some day for a holiday.

              Thijs, I only saw this thread had a new post just now. That was great to watch, lovely to see the Janihudi sailing. I was jumping up and down in my chair, saying to myself "Yes, I know it, I've seen the boat, I've been there!" Clicking on the video I find there is a lot more to see about Woudrichem, will watch them all later. Thanks so much for posting this one.

                  i was standing that sunday on top of the curchtower,it was open this afternoon because of a litte christmas wintermarket.

                  i wanted to stay there till dark,brought the tripot with me for longer shuttertimes.
                  coming at the top (more dead then alive) the guide told me that at 17.00h (5.00pm) had to go down for curchtime.

                  but also said to me if there is snow in a weekend ,i can call him and we go up again.,

                  so for now no dark images and now snow also

                  this is how flat holland is.

                      Re: this is Woudrichem,the Netherlands

                      Thijs, so good to see more of Woudrichem, and from a different viewpoint. That first one, could that smoking chimney be in Rotterdam?
                      That spot where the three great rivers meet just stands out in my memory as a most wonderful place. Oh dear, that makes it sound as if all the rest of that weekend was not, also, wonderful. To me it was, you must know that. But the three rivers area somehow has a sort of mystical atmosphere to it, when we were there I could not absorb enough of it.
                      Post more whenever you get the chance.

                        Re: this is Woudrichem,the Netherlands

                        the chimney is from the electricety plant in Raamsdonkveer about a 20 minutes drive.
                        if you want to see Rotterdam (which can be seen on a very clear day and just the higher buildings) you have to look at the 219/1 in direction Gorinchem.

                        i'm free till januari the second so they wil ome.
                        lets go further in the overal panorama vieuw

                        (i'm missing a slighty piece between the last and this image,a small part.though,the only in and out gate of Woudrichem)

                            Beautiful light you've caught. There is another little market, as when we were there.

                              what do you mean?
                              there was no market when we where there,
                              the market there was ,was at loevestein castle.
                              this was more christmas related.
