Oh wow, check that out Frans, it’s not only an amazing picture.
But at first glance it looks like a sci-fi landscape. 💫 With both
buildings, and perhaps even spacecraft about to take off, and
take flight. 🚀 Just is stunning ! And you know, so many times
the lighting like is in the pic, time of day, time of year, or even
height the picture is taken from makes such a difference. Or
helps give the picture a whole new personality. 🙂

I love it ! ..And will once again thank you for taking us around
town, and making us feel at home.

By the way, it is just phenomenal seeing a post of yours’ pop
up. 😀 I hope everything has been alright. I know it’s been a
terrible few years. ..Nevertheless, seeing your name up, and
especially a post makes this day a happy one ! 😉

Last Sunday we went to visit a restaurant called A La Plancha on the south bank of the river (Muse). The outdoor (and most popular) part of this fish restaurant is suspended over the river, it's actually a large deck. We had oysters as a starter and gambas as main course. The weather was terrific and we stayed for drinks just before sunset.

Well that looks, as well as sounds amazing, not to mention
delicious Frans ! 🦐

There's something about eating outside too that is just so
much fun imho. (y)(y) I'm not sure if it's the fresh air, and
how it seems to supercharge your tastebuds, or seeing the
scenery, and everything. But it's great no doubt. And sharing
the time with others makes it that much more enjoyable.

..That's for sure too 😀

Honestly staying put at that restaurant all afternoon, along
with night would have been a treat all by itself Frans. However,
when you have those amazingly beautiful waterways, as well
as streets to explore, it's tough to resist it all. Yowza, another
picture perfect day in Rotterdam it looks like.🏆

Thanks so so much for sharing the day with us sir !!!

This is the pond I used to fish in when I was a boy (9 or 10), it hasn't changed in all those years and resides in a very quiet part of Rotterdam:

Hey neat sir, I bet you used to pack a lunch too, and perhaps
enjoy a picnic or two under those incredible trees. 🌳 🌳 😉
..Weeping Willows right?! 😀They are some of the nicest of
trees really. Along with coolest in every sense of the word to
be under this time of the year. 😎 ..And it seems as though
they might be all around that park Frans. So nice ! I would be
visiting that park as much as possible if I lived there.

Seriously would be taking in all the sites, along with getting
hypnotized by the beautiful water, and fountains. ..Any day
spent there would be a memorable one !

Can’t thank you enough for making it feel like we are there !!!

This is the building I showed before but this time I took the photo myself. It's an art depot, containing 151,000 artefacts that are stored there until the museum that these belong to has undergone its renovation (will take many years from now). It's called 'The Depot' and stands 39.5 meters tall. I took the ohoto yesterday.

o_O:cool: Holy cow Frans, the building that is temporarily holding all
of those pieces of art is an actual piece of art ! :D

What a great picture sir, along with place to keep all those artefacts
honestly. It looks like it's made of some amazing liquid metal with all
of the mirrors done like that. Wow, incredible ! I'd be walking by that
every day just to take in the ultra cool architecture, along with sights.
It's kind of hypnotic, and you know what's fun too besides the great
building?

Is how there there don't seem to be reflections of people in the
mirrors. ..It really is something to see, because we know that you
are there taking this neat picture somewhere sir. Yet you are seemingly invisible.😮

Yowza, the architects worked some real magic it seems. Very very cool ! And so is the fact that you are storing those artefacts in the
building as well as renovating the museum they will go in. I love the way everyone seems to appreciate history there. THX a ton for
sharing this pic with us Frans !!!

This is the back of the building and you can see my reflection almost in the middle of it.

:) Oh o.k., I got it Frans, I see you now. ;)

Your camera got in so close it made it feel like you were closer. Very cool.
..Both the building, AND your camera. (y)(y)
Thanks mate! My 'camera' is an iPhone 12 Mini :D

It might be a small fountain, but it’s still beautiful Frans. (y)(y)

Every one of these pictures always is. With this one being yet
another one which is like a postcard. :) Seriously, you could
print this up, and put it with a bunch of postcards there, and it
would fit in perfectly. I mean the fountain couldn’t be nicer, plus
you have the park behind it with the flowers, and trees. As well
as epic blue sky. 😯

Oh, and by the way, those flowers looks very similar to some
flowers I see in a park near us. 😀 They are awesome, as was
this latest post ! ..Thanks a bunch !!!

Hey neat sir, looks like we get to enjoy an ultra cool double feature
today with these two sir !! :cool::cool:

First, I love this bridge, or at least I think that it is a bridge, with
the mega futuristic design. 🛸Many Times when you see bridges
they are extremely cool, but are much more industrial in design.
Or have a gigantic bulky way about them. However, this one in
which you are showing is part piece of art work if I’m being honest.
..Which I am. 😊 I swear the more I look at it, the more things I
see within it. It’s part bridge, meets robot, even Stonehenge. 🗿

Oh, and the shot of the pier with that enormous mural on the
building in the back takes your, or my breath away as well. 😲
Not only is it an epic painting, but the surrounding skies along
with buildings makes for an unforgettable view.

Thank you so much for sharing it, or both of these with us Frans !!!

Wow, beautiful building, as well as picture Frans ! 😀

Last time we got the other side of the coin which was modern, while
today we get a little more of the traditional side. It's a win win no matter
what you show to us !! 😎😎And have to say this building here today is
incredible, or really incredible. I mean the architecture alone, as well as
shapes are so nice it's not even funny. ..Seriously, it's like a town hall,
meets a cool college, or even castle. But it is, or was actually the cruise
line's buildng right?! ..It's really something to see, and must be a joy
to see every day there.

I'd just be hypnotized by the clock towers every day. 😊Not only seeing
if my watch was on time, but enjoying the fantastic look of those alone !
Man oh man, and they even look like they could be bronze, or copper
by the looks of the neat green. ..Have to thank you for the great pic !!!

This is the small stream called the 'Rotte' that gave Rotterdam its name:



This one I took from a waterfront bar that was formerly the club house of a student rowing club:

Alright, now that’s just too cool right there finding out about that stream
actually giving the city it’s name like that. (y):) I love finding out about
things like this sir. ;) Always am learning something new every single
day. It’s awesome ! And so is that stream, along with the the entire area
around it. Holy cow, it’s stunning with all of the flowers, and that gate
looks like it’s the portal to somewhere else with the way it’s set up. o_O

Even that epic waterfront bar/old rowing club picture takes our breath
away with that sunset. ..Along with bridge that seems to go off into
the sunset, as well as infinity. ..Yet a couple more shots that really give
us a terrific feel for things over there Frans. THX a bunch for taking, as
well as sharing them with us !!!
