Sneek (pronounced 'SNAKE') is it.. well done once again, Fallard. GE did recognize and find just 'sneek' for me.

This was an excellent day trip.. some of the sights:





This was the lunch time traffic jam waiting for the bridgekeeper to get back on duty!





Seconds after this next shot was taken, this German chartered boat got caught on our stern wave while attempting to pass too close.. struck the port quarter of our boat quite hard, and did some damage to his own gunwale and bow rail.. its was a bit of a shocker but you could see it coming!



Our return was via the much busier (commercially) Princess Margeriet Canal.



Fallards up next!!
