So this was obviously some kind of competition, festival or both which I biked past on my way home from a glorious team-tennis Saturday recently. Tap or click on the image below & then enlarge it, and you’ll see a boat being lifted out of the water by a crane. I guess many of these boats were carried in by road rather than coming under their own power along canals from farther away 🙂

Yesterday (Sunday the 17th) the Amsterdam Marathon was run. It’s also got an 8km walk, and a half-marathon. All the races started and ended at the Olympic Stadium, which I’ve shown you from various angles since I moved here in July, pretty much. It’s a 10-minute walk from my home, and all the races ran right past my building…as you see 🙂 I took some of these on Friday evening when the sun came out at the end of my work-from-home day and I decided a walk was in order, only to find all these new temporary things in my neighborhood. On Saturday there was both a City Walk, some kind of organized group walk thing (sponsor of the signs you see below), and some great park art in ArtZuid (ArtSouth), here in the southern district of Amsterdam where I now reside. All lovely, and yes – more photos for the future!
