What a day. We started out this morning at 8.00am trying to get as close to Antwerp as possible. We certainly didn't expect to run into an unforecast force 7 gale with wind gusts of 65kms per hour.
Turned out to be a great day listening to our football team Collingwood winning against the reigning champions (rugged up with rain jacket and gloves and with the phone in a plastic bag to protect it from the spray) to book a place in the Grand Final next week.
The very small marina in Utrecht was full when we arrived so we were directed to moor in a No Parking area for the night. Great mooring right in the centre of town and at no cost. We christened it Anzac corner after some very nice New Zealanders arrived to join us.
Unfortunately, the trees above us were full of very large birds with dysentery issues so a major clean up was called for in the morning. Top down again and even the windows folded down this time to get under a low bridge.
Cruised out of Utrecht but came across a bridge that had malfunctioned. We had to wait for a couple of hours for the engineer to arrive, but during that time we met a lovely English couple that live very close to one of our pet-sitting assignments. Have arranged to catch up with we get to the UK. ... See MoreSee Less
For me the one with the least hoover area please 😉
The train museum is worth your while
They are all stunning!!! Keep living life to the fullest you two - amazing adventures 😊
I love living on the water but I'd rather not have a road between us and the beach (Stradbroke Island). My dream would be one of these lovely houses with my own pontoon or dock....or a big houseboat on the Noosa River or the "SUNSHINE COAST!"
I would be grateful to have any of them Lea Lea Leanne Peters x x x I'd even let you moore your boat out the front 😁😁
2 or 4, thank you.
The one that looks like a castle with all the towers on it
Careful there's supposed to be a dragon living up there somewhere
This morning we took one last stroll around Weesp visiting a wonderful deli and the local street market.
We then continued our journey south along the stunning Vecht River where we passed some wonderful homes and rural scenery. Some of the river homes have two levels where the living area is on top with the bedrooms downstairs under the level of the water - fascinating.
After three hours of cruising, we decided to call a stop in the village of Loenen. Once again absolutely beautiful outlook and very interesting having drinks on the back deck as we watch other boats pass by. ... See MoreSee Less
