After a long period I have time to restart the photoblog.
Yesterday we cycled along the banks of the river Maas and through the national park Maasduinen.
We used the cyclist network.
The network route started in the village Bergen: 89-83-86-87-88-85-90-82-80=68-89 and was 34 km.

We hoped for a bright swarm Spring day. So we went of a 40 km bicycle tour south of Gouda: Haastrecht, Vlist, Schoonhven, Bergambacht and Stolwijk. But it was cold and grey. But there many sings of Spring.

Balk is a small town in Frisia. Frisia one of the three Nothern provinces of the Netherlands.
We stayed a weekend in Balk. On Saturday we made a bicycle trip of about 50 kilomters through Gaasterland. it started with rain but later the sky cleared. On Sunday strongs winds made bicycling very unattractive so we visited the beautifull small town Sloten and the largest steam pumping station in the world which is still in use; The Wouda pumping station in Tacozijl near Lemmer. http://www.woudagemaal.nl/

Today I visited the Verolme Keppel shipyard near Rotterdam. In drydock was the largest pipe layer in the world; the SOLITAIRE of Allseas. It is a 30 year old bulkcarrer , first converted a the SwanHunter shipyard on Tyne. Now converted for laying pipelines as deep as 2500 meter. The maximum pipelaying speed is 9 kilomter per hour. Ths ship works mostly on the North Sea our the Gulf of Mexico.
It is in fact a large floating factory with a multinational crew.It is on the frontiers of modern technology.
The working is goining seven days a week , 24 hours a day. In two days time the ship will be undocked and divers will attach the 8 propelleors.
