Bridge over the Old Rhine at Alphen aan den Rijn, NL. The name of the theatre refers to the Roman castellum which used to be here a while ago, when this river was part of the northern border of the Roman empire.

I passed through there on my way to Monmouth, Wales, a very beautiful area. Here is the hand operated ferry at Symonds Yat Rock:

Very neat way to cross the river, would highly recommend. 2 GBP each way. The ferryman was an extra cool guy. Lots of fun.

Crossing Peninsular Blvd. It's more like a parkway than a boulevard in this area.

How did you find a bridge painted to compliment your bike color?!

Just lucky. I was also concerned that you might not see the bike with all the green.
