    years back a busy point with the snackbar that stand against the wall at the rightside,the street was narrower then.
    (shell look for old images when the water was inside the snackbar)

    at this place stands the cafeteria,which had to go, in the middle ages ,there was no cafeteria.idiots,if they had a mobile cafeteria with engine in those days.



    you just can't see how high the water was

            Now you have really made me sad, homesick for little Woerkum. It's such a lovely place, so self-contained. Thank you for spending so much time sorting out those old photos and matching them up, Thijs, I've really enjoyed the comparisons. Has there been much by way of floods this year so far?
            And I've been meaning to ask you for some time, did the Janihudi bring up St. Nicolas on 6 December last? Or don't they do it any more?

              and this was the first of them Ivy,but you'll see that soon.
              no much water till now,maybe later,winter issn't over jet.
              i dont know if she had sail last year,they have done it in the evening also last year,
              so the little kids could walk with paper lantarns.

              the flood of 1993 ,explanation will come later,but hee,thats weird, a ''famous'' vessel,but rare name.



              and one with normal river level.

                  the city sign plate (the most left on the image) in the water is at the road,well road is to much for a goat path what let you go to the camping,and that was where now the road is behind the tug in the image above.



                  al the poles in the water (below) is where the fisherman hang there nets on



                  the image above shows the place where is now the the place of the overview below ,the place where the vessels are mored above point 6

                  and here where

                  a little left of point 6 at the point of the wall which is also Ralfs canon place i take the image below.
                  the triangle shape on the pole in the water is the point right next to the beach



                  if we look at the overview image then every was overflooded from where the ''janihudi'' lays,so from point 10,to north of Woudrichem 15 ,3 ,6,7,13 and along the dijk ''goenendijk'' and also the landsend between the rivers to loevestein castle was water.
                  and this was 1993

                    A good illustration, Thijs, of the 1993 flood, the comparison photos and your summing up with the aid of the map bring out the extent of it very clearly. Thank you very, very much.
                    This was the year after I retired and yet I can't remember what, if anything, happened over here. It couldn't have been very much.

                      but i dont know eather what happend in that year Ivy,i do know that i was the father of a 1 year and 4 months old kid,called wesley,time flies.
                      nothing odd on post 321-1 Ivy?

                      the upcoming images i was in doubt why i take them .they are the same,but then i notice some of them had the same kind of sky,others had wilder water,and at last i see the more growed tree.compare the images of the 93 flood and the 95 flood
                      again the floods of 93 and 95,the flood of 95 was 24 cm higher



                      flood of 93



                      flood of 95

                            93, from Ralfs cannon place



                            95 ,WITH Ralfs cannon



                            and how it looks with normal tide.

                            so after looking what was what year 95 was bad weather, rain, wilder water, brown water and grey sky,while 95 had a color full sky,''smooth'' water,grey/brown water.

                              Ah, CVF is up and running again.

                              nothing odd on post 321-1 Ivy?
                              Oh yes, I noticed it and was puzzled, but although I couldn't remember you mentioning that name I thought I'd better check back and also on the Woerkum site before I asked you, otherwise you'd beat me up for not knowing. But how come it is called DORA P II (it looks like)? The one behind looks like the same boat as in #326.2 the "Janihudi 10", although I think they were taken in different years, and it even seems to have that name on it. I downloaded and sharpened it and I'm sure it says Janihudi.
                              These later pictures certainly show the extent of the floooding in those two years and, as you say, they are alike and yet different in their moods. I like #329.1 best. It is both dramatic in what it portrays but yet calm and very beautiful in aspect - a picture to frame and hang on the wall, Thijs.

                                by looking at the image of where the 'dora p II'' is,i thought also i never told her that she was also called Dora p II.
                                she was in that time the property of the floating restaurant,which in that days was a ''mainly'' fish resaturant.
                                when he sold his restaurant to the pancake reastaurant he also sold the ''januhudi'' with it.

                                the little green boat is the janihudi (10),the big boat behind the ''dora p II'' i dont know her,
                                but indeed it looks like there stands ''janihudi '' on the wheelhouse,there is just no recall of what and from who she was.
                                it isjust that you menganed it,but i didn't seen it.

                                went upstairs for using the big loup,and weirder is that it is named ,
                                ''janihudi 3'' and nothing to found on you tupe of her.

                                what do you mean by picture to frame it,the one of post 329-1,
                                329 is your post
