Wednesday July 28. On the Move again

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

Marinus called me today. He is loading salt in Amsterdam on Friday destined for Koblenz and I expect to meet him early Saturday morning in Lobith, where the Waal river joins the Lower Rhine, on the German border. Then I will wait again in Koblenz for a tow to Mainz. Koblenz is where the Moselle River joins the Rhine. It is a beautiful old city and will be a good stop. I have a choice to meet “Glisando” in Tiel on the Waal river, which is closer by but I prefer to see the countryside of the Lower Rhine, which will take me past Rhenen, Wageningen and Arnhem. There is only a very moderate current against me on this route. I plan leave in the morning.
