Bikes & Boats (or Amsterdam Part 2)

Ships are the nearest things to dreams that hands have ever made.
Robert N. Rose

At least, men seem to think so. They are utterly fascinated with boats & ships and everything nautical. I guess, they would all be living at sea if they could. Obviously, they have a very, very  romanticized view of a life at sea: only water in all directions, weeks and weeks of loneliness with only the calm sea as company, a huge wooden home moving only because of their musclular strength and their will and - best of all - no women in sight, no talking, no criticizing.

Yeah, all right. Dream on, guys! You're not Popeye the Sailorman and you never will be...

I guess they know it and that's why they seize every opportunity to dream about a life they will never have. As long as they take nice pictures that's fine with me *grin*
And I have to admit that I have been thinking about living a life as a pirate more than once... (but without Jack Sparrow that's only half as promising).

For those of you who are either not male or not into ships, I added some bikes :)

We may all have come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now.
Martin Luther King Jr.

and now for the bike-lovers:
