This has to be the most unlikely repurposing of an old ferry:  overflow parking for bicycles just north of the main train station in Amsterdam.

Here are a few vessels of Acta Marine at their yard in Den Helder.  They specialize in workboats for shallow waters.  L to R, Coastal Surveyor 2, Jutter, and Coastal Explorer.

And to bring this installment to a close, the first photo here was NEMO, an Amsterdam science center.

All photos by Will Van Dorp . . .  who feels like he’s hopping between continents.

Click here to see fotos Barbara took from her apartment on three or so successive  days about three months ago—before, during, and after Sandy.

The next two fotos she took this morning–here of snow on top of post Sandy transformation– after our first significant 2013 winter storm in the sixth boro.  For outatowners,  Barbara’s apartment–on the beach–is within the limits of NYC.   In the sky, that’s a midmorning sun.
