            I discovered these a while ago when there were only two pictures there and started a Reply immediately because it was so exciting to find you had gone to the fair and taken pics. as you have done in the past. I demanded more images. But then before I had posted I went and spilt a mug (a van Gogh mug!) of hot chocolate and spent the next half hour cleaning the carpet. When I returned I refreshed and found many more photos as I had wanted. How good it was to see them all, Thijs, images of dear Woerkum which brought back so many memories.
            Yes, such a pity the weather was foul, it's no fun walking around in the rain. The only advantage was that it gave you beautiful gleams of light on the hard surfaces which bring the scenes alive. The pictures are wonderful, so atmospheric as Yves remarked. I particularly love the second one of the Prisoners' Gate seen through the passage from the quay, it's a beautiful picture.
            If you have much snow (we had quite a fall this morning but it soon disappeared), do go and take more photos of Woerkum scenes,eh?

                  .....or maybe not!

                went to Woerkum this afternoon.
                there was some fuss about something with water.
                didn't had to go,the water wil be there about Wednesday,

                  A very interesting video,Thijs, thanks. That man at 1.09 wears a hat with a feather and the Woerkum symbol of two crossed salmon. So I assume he is a local official, like a mayor, perhaps?
                  There are several other excellent videos well worth seeing, I enjoyed them all. (But then I'm very biased! )

                    He is a city guide.
                    A vollunteer. He was here writing the height of the water level at Cologne.
                    An old tradition.
                    They expect the heighest level this night for Woudrichem

                    But go to you tube.
                    Type

                    And then even more videos of woerkum

                  lets see were l the fuss was about.
