The Changing Seasons #7

I joined in January the Monthly Photo Challenge: The Changing Seasons, which runs from the 7th to the 15th day of the month throughout the year, hosted by Cardinal Guzman.

This month’s gallery is ‘hot’! A heat wave hit Europe in mid July, bringing the temperature to reach over 30 degrees Celsius.

No complains! Everyone enjoyed it and jumped into the water. Like i previous months, my galleries will show the canals of Amsterdam, as well as the residential area named Borneo Eiland.

Enjoy it, and let me know what you think. Click if you wish to enlarge the photos.

  1. Looks like a lot of fun Lucile. I love the jumping off the bridge photos. Just to let you know it’s a cold, rainy, winters day here so I appreciate seeing your hot photos immensely.

  2. Oh how fabulous. I recognize everything but it’s all so different with the golden glow of summer. I especially love all the shots of the people jumping off the bridge – you caught some simply perfect shots. And the captain sitting on the front of his boat – adorable. I miss this city dreadfully!!

  3. Man, now you’ve got me upset. Now I wish I had gone to Amsterdam…and then on to Cuba, as first planned. I want to walk the canals. I want to drink a beer on the sidewalk. I want to dive off that bridge. DANG…and here I am, stuck in Bali. Life just is not fair.

    1. No way! You’re better off in Bali! Serious. You’d not have liked a heat wave. It was way too hot here. I came back last week from vacations and temps were much better around 23-24 and sunny.
      Life is unfair!! I wish I were in Bali!!

      1. A heat wave in Amsterdam. That’s like a traveler’s dream. It was 49 when I left Abu Dhabi. It’s a frigid, and marvelous, 22 this morning. It’ll be hotter when the sun gets up. I agree…life is unfair.

  4. The bridge shots are amazing and I really like that stadium shot. That was a stadium right? And the picture of the old school ship, at least old school in American standards. Great shots I am so jealous I need to log a vacation like this.

    1. That building is a science museum called Nemo. Children have a great time there, making experiments.
      The other is a replica of the old ships the Dutch navigated during colonial times.
      Thank you so much for your lovely comment.
      It’s always own for visit alongside the maritime museum.

    1. Thank you.
      This old ship is a replica of the ones which the Dutch navigated at colonial times. It’s called Amsterdam and it is moored alongside the Maritime museum. It’s an exact copy of the East Indiaman Amsterdam, lost on her maiden voyage in 1749. In the 17th and 18th century, the Dutch East India company (VOC) set sail in ships like these to reach the Far East , now called Asia.

    1. They do have fun and it is also thrilling because it’s forbidden. The police checks the whole day and the kids keep jumping!!
      Typical Dutch, the police knows, checks, warns them, and goes away knowing that the cycle will be repeated in a couple of hours when they return. But nothing happens to the kids.
      They are concerned about their safety too.
      This summer has been summer, after forever no summers.
