July 6th Cruising the Ijselmeer with Jeannine and Gabrielle

Written by Jack van Ommen on July 6th, 2010

Jeannine just told me that she is staying in Holland for the rest of her life. We”ll see. But I take it that it means that all the efforts to make this happen will be worth it. Karolien and Herman came to get us at the Airport on Sunday morning. Two tired travellers had a good rest on the boat in Monnickendam and we set out on Monday morning to make stops at Marken and Volendam and then had a windy sail to Hoorn. Double reefed. It is another beautiful early morning in the inner harbor of Hoorn. Jeannine is thrilled to see the sun reflect the old gabled houses in the harbor’s water. We are rafted three deep. Two young Dutchmen and a British couple, David and Jane who had us over for cocktails. We will explore the town center this morning and then sail to Enkhuizen. ThisĀ evening the semi final for Holland and Uruguay.

No pictures. The wireless is too slow.
