Harlingen, Friesland

Before I continue with the Strasbourg series, I will show you the drawings I made yesterday.
I had a business trip up north, to Harlingen, to visit a salt production plant. Harlingen is a very old Dutch town located directly on the sea.
It is as Dutch as you can get: canals, gabled houses, ship locks, sailing-boats, fishtrailers and so on.
Here are two sketches: above the old sail ship "de Marieje", dating from 1898. It just returned from a trip and was mooring.
The other is a gabled house on the Noorderhaven. There were a lot of these, hard to choose which to draw.

Looks like a very interesting place. It must be great fun to mix business and pleasure in such scenic places.
