A splendid day last Thursday, it felt like the first day of summer, though that hasn’t officially started yet; we spent it as a hiking day in South Holland through the Krimpenerwaard, South of Gouda

Officially, we only went into Gouderak to have something to drink at lunchtime, as we’d already eaten our sandwiches out in the sun on a bench. But we were utterly unable to resist the little ferry here crossing the river Hollandse IJssel to Moordrecht – so we crossed the river, ending our hike by an alternative route: along the river dike, across the locks, and then cross-town through Gouda to the market, and finally to the station.

Almost in Moordrecht

Apart from sporting some nice heavy metal the ferry was fun: two boats operating simultaneously, backing up, turning into the river (one upstream, one downstream), making a turn, and then heading to the dock on the other side: seen from above it must look like an elegant pas de deux.

As we approached Moordrecht, I noted the fender on the dock, nicely reinforced with recycled (reused, rather) tires – another lovely assortment of textures.
