I also hadn't seen Ine's reportage from september 7, great series also! Impressive ships at or near the quay and nice candids.

TY Pieter! and TY Fred! (!)
it is btw strictly prohibited to park there! ;-) (those ships were all sailing past the boulevard). and the series didn't happen.
these were taken while sitting against the boulevard wall for some shelter (h☼t!). on top of a steep slope, wearing summery shoes with slippery soles and no intention to roll into the water.
(barefoot you'll be grilled on that south facing boulevard! dancing the horlepiep until you reach wet sand).
still thinking about FLs and best spots and angles, and talking with my neighbour (equipped with Canon 'of course'), prior to the show. the entire allied naval fleet was about to pass Vlissingen on its way to Terneuzen. but they never did.


'these' were btw the maps used during the Battle of the Scheldt









and 'these' are RAF pics
october 7, 1944









the bombing of the Nolle dike!

Veere is the place to be!

Pity I didn't run into Jokuh (sounds more like 'Haags' :-)) or Napoleon!

Veere is a gem.
I love the clouds!

beautiful! and love that tilted tower, great angle!
hopjes are Haags!




hopjes from Veere!




but would really appreciate if you would reveal the proper phonetic spelling! (and for 'Ine' even more! THX? ;-)).
I think Jo-ke would be totally happy sounding Haags, as long as no one thinks she was named 'joke'?
she told me about the Veere ramparts. I didn't know they existed either and they have been there for a while?





found Napoleon amidst enormous smoke clouds.
(it was almost dinner time)





the boys were busy too!


and there were 'British'





and locals





and tourists















and of course there were Scots
(Scottish Scots, from Scotland! ;-))

Hopjes from Veere is the limit but I love the reenactment shots of the illfated English invasion of Walcheren. The English army was decimated, not by fighting the French, but by 'Walcheren fever'!

Here's the phonetic transcription of Joke and Ine:

/ˈjəʊkə/ and /ˈɪənə/

Hope this helps
