Pieter, we've enjoyed our trip to Rotterdam/Maassluis.

The recovery of my broken SD-card went fine (this is the 2nd Dyxum-meeting where i have an SD card that broke - and it's always the silver colored type that does weird things - the first time on the a6000 now on the A77II).

In Maassluis the sky went open - and though it was windy, and not realy warm - the sun got thru - nice blue sky and some birds, boats, and lots of bricks...

And thank you for organizing it Pieter. Please send me the bill!

Thanks for moving my images. I was home early and got a head start, couldn't resist to jump the gun.

Despite the terrible weather we managed a enjoyable and successful day, made well use of the dry spells and had plenty of opportunities for pictures. Can't wait to see what I missed in Maassluis, but I imagine that images will appear in chronological order and that I need to be patient.

Thanks for a great meeting yesterday, it was a nice group with some Benelux meeting veterans as well as new or less familiar faces. The weather and light wasn't the greatest but in the end we really didn't get wet and had a very good day with a visit to the Museum Park, the Van Nelle factory and (for some in the end) a walk through Maassluis.

I hope everybody came home safely.

I've moved Paul's images to a dedicated Themed Views Dyxum Meeting thread "Rotterdam 23-02-2020", I hope to see many more photo's there, it's always nice to see how different people "see" the same area.

Clearly I can’t take part in your DM but I am following it with interest. I hope you all meet up and have a great day together and we are all looking forward to seeing the photos.

Good you checked Arnold, according to Google (which is what I checked) they're open on sunday while according to their own website (which I assume is correct) they're closed.

I tried to call them but they're not picking up the phone   

I found another one in the area that is open, both according to Google as well as according to their own website:

Nieuw Rotterdams Cafe
Witte de Withstraat 63
3012 BN Rotterdam

Google Maps

Just to make sure everybody gets this "last minute" change I'll make a What's App group so I'll let everybody know there as well.

Cheaper alternative is taking a P+R at the city limit and go to the center with public transport, or park either further away for free and take public transport from there (Tram to Museumpark or Metro to Eendrachtsplein).

Metro stop Dijkzicht is even closer walking distance

Doppio Espresso, Wytemaweg 72, 3015 CN Rotterdam, Nederland. It's close to the Chabot Museum and Parking Museumpark. It opens sunday at 10:00 which is OK for us.

According to its website Doppio Espresso is regularly closed at Sunday. However it could change; did anyone verify it is open tomorrow?

Glad you heard me (btw, usually internet "shouting" is all capitals)

Everybody confirmed now, so looking forward to see you all tomorrow morning.

Looking at the weatherforecast maybe we can do Maassluis and/or Hoek Van Holland after Van Nelle, looking at the Buienradar forecast the rain will be over from mid afternoon

Since Ivo and I are carpooling that's probably not that much more expensive, considering public transport is also not entirely free.

Cheaper alternative is taking a P+R at the city limit and go to the center with public transport, or park either further away for free and take public transport from there (Tram to Museumpark or Metro to Eendrachtsplein).

So how about we change meeting to see each other between 10:30 and 11:00 at:

I will also change the first post with the new coordinates

In case the weather suddenly turns nice there's plenty to see there as well, Museumpark, Delfshaven, Euromast, Het Park, parkkade etc. is all in walking distance.

But one important thing: it will make me feel much better if everybody can confirm that they have seen the new meeting place here, I don't want anybody to show up in Maassluis and wonder where all the other participants are.....

OK, you don't have to shout

Fred, can I join?
It would mean a (small) detour and we can share costs for park&drive

Sure, no problem Domien. Just PM me your address and we will agree a pick up time.
