  • A ship in dock

    A moveable dock in the middle of the Caland Canal attracted my attention. It seems it has just half a ship on it.

    If you're waiting for the ferry from Rozenburg to Maassluis, or just want to see the river traffic come by along the 'Nieuwe Waterweg', have a good meal or a drink at 't Veerhuis.
