Pictures of Dordrecht, The Netherlands

It was a wonderful sunny day today, so we made a bike trip with the family. Here are some pictures of our trip from my hometown Dordrecht to Papendrecht by using the water bus to get there and the bikes to get back.

This is the waterbus bus stop in Dordrecht at the Merwekade.

And here is another view on Dordrecht, where you can also see the windmill Kyck over den Dijk, which is quite near to our house and also in sight from the office of ProcoliX Managed Hosting and Inprove IT Infrastructure Solutions.

If you look the other way from that point, you can see the bridge over the Beneden Merwede that connects Papendrecht with Dordrecht.

Here is another one that gives you a good view of a typical Dutch sky with wonderful clouds. No wonder the cloud and cloud computing is so big in the Netherlands.

After crossing the bridge back to Dordrecht we stopped at the small branch of the Merwede called Wantij.

At the river Wantij is also the Royal Dutch Rowing and Sailing Association KDR&ZV. Here is a picture of the harbour and club building.

If you look a bit more to the right you can see de logeerboot (sort of a hostel but on a boat) that is suited especially for kids with autism and it houses a bed and breakfast.
