Ship carrousel

Now I know what that boat is doing there. This sign tells me that it is a ship carrousel and they will continuously change the boat that is mooring here.

Tourist change point

This is what they call a tourist change point for bikers. It is easily recognized by the pointed pile of stones, kept in place by iron wire. At such a point you will find a map of the surrounding area because there are several interesting routes to cycle or walk. Come visit nature!!

Boat sailing into harbour of Urk

 Saw this boat sailing into the harbour of Urk.
 If you enlarge the above picture you can see the Ketelbrug to the right of the boat in the distance.
Sailing with a Dutch flag on the right side of the boot.
If I am not mistaken they call this starboard side of the ship.
There it goes into the harbour.

The lighthouse in Urk

Cycled to the harbour in Urk and noted the little light house from the other side!
It's such a quaint sight on this bright and sunny day.

Fishing nets hanging out to dry

In Urk I noted these fishing nets hanging out to dry. It seemed to me that they don't use these nets anymore but were hanging there as a tourist attraction.
