Queen's Day Pics

Just a few pics I downloaded from a friend:

The canal boats fit under the bridge. The guitarists and drummer didn't.

This was a quiet street. The BIG crowds started one block further down the road.

Orange is the colour of the Dutch royal family. (Also the name.)

Did you have fun and stay safe?

Quilly, weird that I didn't get an email notification with your comment. Hmmm, blogger is being silly again.

As mentioned, the orange is to celebrate the royal family (and the nation) on Queen's Day.

J.D. you commented well. :-)

Orange is the colour for teh Netherlands. Even in soccer matches. I like it...you can spot them from far away and turn around quickly. JOKE! Glad you had fun...

What? It's true! If you see a group of 5 or more people wearing football (soccer) jerseys chances are they're singing too, because they're drunk. Stepping to the other side of the road or taking a different car in the train is a good idea.

Unless you really like bad singing.
