Saturday 6 November.Still Roaming in Romania

Written by Jack van Ommen on November 6th, 2010

I just read that Holland had their hottest November night since 1901. It is in the high seventies here again but supposed to change to rain tomorrow evening. I am hoping for decent weather this Monday for the haul out, It is at least 150 feet from the water to the Danube shore.

Here is the link to the radio interview on the local station:  How is your Romanesque?

I am making progress on my botter story for a potential publication in Wooden Boat magazine. My inspiration comes in spurts but there is much to be researched yet. I have been fed dinner by my local friend Camelia every day this week and she always has some interesting company from among her many friends. I have asked her to adopt me but I’m not getting anywhere. Below picture was taken near town, the old man plowing his vineyard. He engaged me in a a long conversation about America, Industrialization, Communism, Lenin, etc. and even though I kept repeating that I did not understand him he did not let up. He needed to get it off his chest, I think, so I was glad I could help him.

    Dad, you never cease to amaze me and those who I share your story with.

    It was great to hear your voice. It sounds like you are in good hands which allows me to sleep better at night.

    Good luck and much love,
