It’s easy to tell when it’s Summer in Amsterdam. Suddenly the populace is out in force in their boats on the canals.
It is the perfect opportunity to sit in one of the many canal-side cafes and watch the state of relaxation drifting past.
Bigger boats offer the excitement of watching the bridges going up and down.
I’m always impressed with just how many people can fit comfortably on one boat too!
There’s the anticipation of wondering what’s coming towards you from the distant bridge as it opens for the next boat to be allowed through.
Somewhere in there, there’s a small slice of a past life …
When all’s said and done, with so many wonderful options of how to spend your Summer days, messing about on the river, or just watching others messing about, isn’t all that bad!
How’re you passing this Summer heatwave?
