July 27 Waiting Game on the Rhine

Written by Jack van Ommen on July 27th, 2010

Last night was a beautiful full moon over the junction of the Lek and the Rhine River but I could not dig out my tripod to show you a good picture.  This morning I went for an early walk through the town of Wijk bij Duurstede. The 14th century windmill, the Sint Jan’s Church and the medieval castle and the well preserved old walled city make this a very worthwhile stop. I moved from the Euro 1.50/ meter city dock to the 1 Euro/mtr marina. A very pleasant and peaceful spot. There is a steady flow of river barges and pleasure boats moving up and down the river.

I made some improvements and reinforcements to the mast shoring. Sofar I have no idea yet as to when I can expect to leave here. But I have plenty of chores to do while waiting.
