オランダ、ベルギー運河の船旅 7 (Cruise on Canals in the Netherlands and Belgium -7-)


 4月16日の夕方から、船長主催のカクテルパーティがあり、同じく船長主催のフルコース・ディナーへと続く。私たちの今回の旅行は、2010年11月に迎えた金婚を記念してのものでもあり、少しばかりフォーマルな服装で出席する(1枚目の写真)。2枚目の写真は、パーティで船長・ヒディオン・ティンマー氏と一緒に撮って貰ったもの。3枚目は、上級船員たちが紹介された場面。各自の胸の名札にはファースト・ネームが記されており、紹介も役職、ファースト・ネーム、出身国(オランダのほか、スロヴァキア、ドイツ、ハンガリーなど)というものだった。

From the evening of April 16, a cocktail party sponsored by the captain was held, leading to full-course dinner also sponsored by the captain. We planned to join this tour to celebrate our golden jubilee reached in November 2010, so that we attended these meetings in a little bit formal wears (the first picture). The second photo was taken at the party together with the captain, Gideon Timmer. The third picture shows the performance of introducing senior sailors. They had a nameplate on their breast with their first name. The introduction was also made by telling the first name as well as the position and native country of each (the Netherlands, Slovakia, Germany, Hungary, etc.).



 翌17日、船は6:00にフォーレンダムを出港し、9:00にアムステルダム入港を目指す。運河沿岸の家々が美しい(上の2枚の写真)。(つづく)

The next day (Tuesday, April 17), the ship set sail at 6:00 from Volendam, aiming to enter the Amsterdam port at 9:00. Along the canals, beautiful houses were seen (two photos above). (To be continued)




 竜巻お見舞い:メディアによれば、昨6日昼過ぎ、関東地方で竜巻が発生し、中学生1人が死亡したほか、53人がけがをし、住宅など2000棟以上に被害が相次いだということです(数字は後日の修正)。被害等にあわれた皆さんに心からお見舞い申し上げます。

Words of Sympathy to Victims of Tornados: Media reported the following news: Tornados hit a residential area in eastern Japan early Sunday afternoon, killing a junior high school boy and injuring about 53 other people. More than 2000 houses and other buildings were damaged (the numbers were updated later). I sincerely express my sympathy to those who suffered the loss, injury and damage.
