Canals and Barges
On our last day, on our final walk back to the hotel, we finally saw barges on the outer canal! It was raining at that point, but we still managed to watch and take some pictures. We had debated how the bridges over the canal would open when a barge came through and were lucky enough to see it at the very bridge we needed to cross to get to the hotel.
You can see a barge (much darker than the one in the first picture) just starting to go through here.
And here is the back of the barge going into the bridge area.
Casey, Amanda, and Alex in the rain with the bridge coming down behind them. Yes, Alex really is taller than Amanda now - he's thrilled, she's not!
