Long Description:
"The Gorinchem Canal Lock is a lock in the municipality of Gorinchem. The lock is not intended as a safety lock, but as an outlet lock for the Linge and was not primarily designed for shipping. As a result, in the past there were current velocities in the lock at large discharges of the Linge, which hindered shipping. The bridge crossing the lock is a vertical lift bridge"

Then log it and post your pictures! At least one of the photos must be of you and your GPS there with the bridge in the background. (No old vacation shots or photos off the internet!)
