From Krimo's with Love...

Our previous poll asked: Where will/did you spend New Year's Eve?
The results showed that 2/3 of us spent it with family/friends and the rest of us worked.
I did both!
Do not forget to tell us what you will do on Valentine's Day. (Poll in the top right hand corner)

Our friend Stan Laundon took this shot from his balcony window.

I have no idea who's in the helicopter and I can assure you it is not me. I have never been close to a helicopter let alone flown in one. According to Stan it landed just behind the Marina lock office, on the bottom right of the shot.

I wonder whether its owner had lunch with us at Krimo's. You may just see the sign on the other side of the lock gates.

Doesn't it look like a scene from James Bond, especially with the speedboats and yachts.

Happy New Year Krimo and it's good to see you're still thriving over here! It seems somehow appropriate that you stopped by just as I'm settling down with a lovely kriek bier to hand. Now to rustle up something mouthwatering for dinner!

It's my second or third visit here and... mmm... everything is delicious here! I'll be back for more!

Wish you all the best in 2009!

Happy New Year to you too, Andrea.
A kriek beer? Have you tried Leffe?

Krimo said...

Welcome, Leni. Great writing!

Krimo said...

Sheffy, I do that every day... Except that I come out of a wet suit instead of helicopter.

Perhaps it was Mandy on a nostalgic visit to his old stomping grounds?

That is a brilliant shot and so lovely to see your place captured so well too!

Best wishes for the still young year!

Daphnée, I don't think he would've arrived in a small helicopter...

All the best to you too, M.
