There is such a lot of traffic along the Rhine - so many ships carrying all sorts of goods; gas, coal, containers, gravel and iron ore.
Our visit yesterday was to Floriade at Venlo in the Netherlands. First we left the Netherlands and went into Germany on the boat, then off the boat onto a bus and back to Holland - are you confused because I am. Floriade is only on every 10 years so how lucky can you be! Sample of vegetables, so yummmm and the flowers were beautiful. Obviously far better looked after than mine that grow half the size.
