Jaunty Boot in Utrecht

After checking out the Bloemenmarkt (flower market) in Utrecht, Netherlands we rented a small vessel to cruise the canals all by ourselves. This was a huge highlight of the trip for us and me (Rob). Shortly after launch we passed by this jaunty little boot (boat).

At the time we floated past this boat I new I liked it but it was only upon further reflection that I noted the many reasons I think it is special. First, the white color seemed clean and well maintained; second, the choice of such a lovely red as a highlight color really gives it a kick; third, the curved nature of the bow with the flat windows (along with the red trim) give the boot a happy regard; fourth, the red tie-down points below the two open windows are such a great detail; and lastly, those open windows on each side kind of seem like fancy spectacles.

Love it love it love it.
