Written by Jack van Ommen on July 6th, 2010

Another breezy sail for the wind from Hoorn to Enkhuizen. The first experience for the McDonnells going throug the locks.The weather has been great but cooler than last week. We strolled throug the beautiful historic sea town and stopped to admire Astrid’s new bakery.” ‘t Spelthuys”  www.spelthuys.nl Astrid and I met in French Polynesia when she was first mate on the Schooner Brig “Soeren Larsen”. http://cometosea.us/albums/albums/SoerenLarsen/ You just have to come to Enkhuizen yourself and see her shop and taste her pastries and bread.

Another exciting game Holland against Uruguay. Amazing on how a country like Uruguay with a 3 1/2 million population could come this far in the World Cup.  This evening we will find out which of the two, Spain or Germany will have the honor to join Holland on Sunday in the final.

This morning we will visit  the Zuiderzee Museum and then we will keep going to either Medemblik or the (former)  island of Urk where my grandparents were married in 1900.
