Early city marina ambience. People around.
These are the days of 'Maritiem 's-Hertogenbosch 2015', a sailors festival in September. Small old ships of all kind are here.

A narrow inner harbor in a small town. It's early in the morning. People are waking up. On the quay, the market stall to be furnished. The weather is beautiful. Almost no wind.
The harbor master wakes up some sailors. The have to move there ships to an other location, cause some others need to pass. This whining is conceived with humor. After a while the first old engines are audible. Nice the echoing between the buildings.
The first tourists walk over the street and comment the tugs. One boy is enthusiastic and calls a captain. So nice the far church-bells after 31 minutes. After all, it's Sunday. After 44 minutes a one cylinder diesel engine starts. Listen it runs so quiet idle. When it is gone two other ships from the right enter slowly. Wonderful sounds.

Most of the ships are more than 80 years old.

That's all folks. ;-) It was a nice audio day today.
