The stilt walkers

These can certainly really walk because last time I saw them on the Kleiweg and now they are on the Binnenhaven in Gouda. Made by sculptor Lies Ketterer from Solingen and as a sister city of Gouda donated to Gouda in 1972 when the city had 700 years of city rights.

Suppose you have a Rhine barge

 But actually you'd rather have a castle. Well then you just build that on top. Seen this week in the river IJssel near Gouda.

Water problems?

Last Sunday the water in some canals in Gouda was very high again.
The difference is even less than 1 cm at some points but everything is still alright as I always go and check it out on every family visit there. Some houses have even cellars but they are of the floating species. One for Our World Tuesday here.

Early this morning

 On the way to the doctor for an annual checkup

Thought I'd give my newest second hand acquisition (sony A7) a try. Must say it is not disappointing for a camera that does not weigh more and is the same size as my much used olympus e-m1 but full frame.

Walking along the city farm

No idea what they're going to do with this cold weather.


And then even with a dog in it. In any case, the boat is electrically powered. That's another thing.
