We lived on a boat in the Netherlands for six years. Wonderful memories of the Netherlands.
Join me and listen in to the sound of water passing through a short tunnel under a footpath in the woods.
As promised, this is an example of sound recorded using two microphones fitted to my parabolic microphone rather than just one microphone. See what you think…(also see my posting regarding the parabolic microphone here)
Some days I feel a bit like this!
Watch out men! It’s an invasion force!!!
Not two things you see together often…
Many years ago I worked on deep sea salvage tugs and, since then, I’ve always had a soft spot for tugs. The second image shows the tug Statesman, the first tug I went to sea on in 1972 (this makes me feel VERY old!). The radio callsign of the statesman was 6ZQS (Liberian) but was changed to GSAA when the Statesman became registered in Britain (something to do with the Cod War!). The front of the Statesman looked like one of those expensive ocean-going yachts.
Sorry I have been away for a while. Very busy at this end. Back full time the week after next…
The Red Sails
This sorry old Russian submarine is just rotting away in Amsterdam harbour.
Just caught the sun as it was going down…
Sue pilots Barge Lucie (our home) down the river….
A tug that pushes rather than pulls….
The view from the London Eye
As a former ‘tug man’ I have a real soft spot for tugs….
