These boats are all lying in Rotterdam.
Today it was 76 years ago that I was born in this city.

Dear Wil.

I do hope you have some family there to enjoy it with.
Unfortunately I have not had the pleasure of visiting Rotterdam but I love your photos.

Have a very happy day!

Congratulations og Gratulerer med dagen!!!!! I must say that you carry the age well - it is always interesting to visit you blog and see what an interesting life you have lived. Once more I can also see that The Nerherlands is more than Amsterdam...

Happy happy Birthday, Wil. I am not really ALL that far behind you. I love going to a harbour and watching all the reflections and choosing which one to try to photograph.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your family both here in Australia and over in Rotterdam.

The water look so still, and the reflection of the harbour and the boats look so good. I thought the second photo was taken in Singapore.

Happy birthday, good thing the Japanese didn't "snuff" you off in Indonesia and now you are living a ripe rich life.

Happy Birthday! I am visiting your blog for the 1st time via Kay's blog.

The only time I was in the Netherlands was 1970 when I waited for my flight at the airport in Amsterdam.

Loved seeing the tulips and the quaint houses.

De sint is weeral terug op weg naar Spanje, dus het aftellen naar de kerstman kan beginnen.
