Boy Frans, no matter where you look, there's something amazing,
or beautiful to see there sir. That WWII monument couldn't be any
nicer, and seems to be so well thought out. It looks almost like this
cool lighthouse honestly, and I know it even has sailors at the very
bottom of it as well. It must be unforgettable in person.

Also unforgettable has to be going to that outdoor museum, and
just looking around. Or in this case, looking up ! 😯 Could honestly
spend the whole day, or actually days checking everything out.
Thanks very very much for taking time to take us on a tour like this
Frans ! (y)😉

The monument is a stylised ship's bow, splitting the waves. The hole on top is depicting a hawsehole (for the anchor).

That is just THE best Frans, and even cooler than had imagined.
It's so incredible how all of the details are thought of like that, and
then realized, and payed tribute to. Can imagine that it has to be
a real destination for not only all of you there, but so many countless
tourists, and visitors also sir.

Hey, this is neat to see also Frans, and check out how you have
the old mixed with the new once again. Love that ! 🙂 The way
the building looks like it's been there for a quite a while. But then
you have those super sporty, and sleek taxi boats that look like
they can do 100mph ! 😎

😲 Oh man, that is really something sir ! ..Just signing back
on, and seeing this. 😀 Had thought that those boats looked
awesome, and might be able to really move. But wow, they
are even cooler than I imagined. They must make Uber jealous.
All while putting big smiles on all of their passengers. 🙂

Wow, and how about the captains, and their skills?! You can
hear the people having a ball in the video. Thanks a lot sir !!!

O.K. now that is just breath taking Frans ! 😯 You have the lights,
beautiful buildings old, and new, and then what looks like an epic
sunset. Not to mention people ! (y)(y)

Am guessing this pic is from before everything going on the world.
But holy cow is it a welcome site, and a way I hope you, along with
all of us can get back to in the not too distant future.

Hey wait at second, IS this a new picture Frans? 😲

No, it's about two years old. But 1 June next our terraces will open again (with some restriction) and boy, do I want to sit there sippin' a cocktail!

Oh, o.k., had thought it was old at first Frans, but then thought maybe
you guys were starting outdoor dining. That is something that they are
thinking of starting in the coming weeks here. But we'll have to wait,
and see I guess. (y) ..Oh, and yeah, that would be terrific if they open
up your terraces like that, and you can enjoy yourself. 😮🙂 Let's all
hope things stay on track, and let us know when that happens too by
way sir !

Yet another ultra cool pic Frans, and check out the peaceful way
of the entire surrounding area. 🙂😎 You have the water, along
with sidewalks, or pier. Not to mention fantastic buildings, tress,
and all kinds of structures. All keeping those spectacularly beautiful
boats company ! 😵 Boy oh boy, they look like they could be quite
old, but you guys again keep them so well maintained, and cared
for. It's just THE best !

Thank you for another terrific tour sir !!!

Yowza, look at that sir ! 🤯 That's not cookie-cutter, or something you
will see out there in different cities every day. One second it looks like
this other worldly creature. Or even robot sleeking near the water's edge,
and toward everything. Then the next, it's like this astounding piece of
art that you can't take you eyes off of. 😀

Actually is just incredible to look at. But can imagine it's really fantastic
to see up close, and personal. Ridiculously cool Frans !!!

Holy cow, now that is one big fox right there Frans ! 😲😎

Actually can't tell if it's something new, or old, or is always
there for everyone to see, and enjoy in the city. It looks like
they are painting, or cleaning it. Can you tell us more about
it sir? 😀

Such a nice shot of the port there also by the way ! 😎 Love
seeing all of those ships, and how alive everything is. It almost
looks as if the boats are racing there are so many Frans. So so
cool to see Frans ! Thanks so very much !!!

The fox is a couple of years old, 10 meters long and apart from repainting it a week ago, they also put a huge shopping bag in its mouth. The fox stands near a large day market and the bag is there to remind people to take a shopping bag with them and NOT rely on those plastic disposables. The normal sized shopping bags are made from a nylon like recycled material and designed by a Rotterdam designer, she also has her own shop. Anne had a couple and I'm using them now.

The boats are accompanying the 'SS Rotterdam' on its final home trip to my city.

Oh neat Frans, very cool, and was thinking it had to be pretty
new, but wasn't 100% sure. Was also going to ask about the
bag, but forgot to before. So thanks a ton for shedding some
light on that as well. We have those same sort of bags, but not
from that designer of course. Very cool to find out about sir ! (y)

Man, and that is both really nice, but also kind of sad with the
'SS Rotterdam'. Thanks so much once again for all of the great
insight sir !
