DelfSail: Festival of the SEVEN SEAS!
Dear people all around the world,
Yesterday we went on partyship JULES VERNE as V.I.P.'s to "sail" along the Eems with all the other TALL SHIPS from all over the world!
There is the SEDOV from Russia, the BOUNTY (this ship was used in the movie Pirates of the Carribean), the Russian MIR, the famous Kreuzenstern from Germany and many more....
It ws a lovely day and it was wonderful to be at the Eems again.
My dad used to work on a firebrigadeship in this harbour and in summertime I went along with him all the time, because I just LOVE the OCEAN and to be on the water!
I NEVER have been seasick in my life! I really must have sea-legs!
So...this trip was so very special to me!
We were so very lucky to get this opportunity.
We went with the whole family, so granny could enjoy her grandson's the whole day!
Here some pictures that I want to share with all of you.
At nine thirty p.m. a wonderful Dutch artist MARCO BORSATO did a live concert in the harbour!
There were at least 80.000 (!!!) people to see and hear him and his great band!
That was toooooo much for me! Instead of standing there as a sardine, I went to the beach and saw MARCO on a huge screen. It was like he was right there....
SOOOO LIVE! SOOOOO VERY WONDERFUL!
THANK YOU MARCO AND BAND: it was a splendid concert!
Silly me to forget my camera .....
I could have had him soooooo close!
Well, anyway....here are some nice pictures.
Have a great sunday
I see bye, bye....happy girl on a sunny, warm day in small Delfzijl, where it is very, very busy (I'll make some pictures of all the people!),
