September 22nd Saturday Evening Post. Venlo, Holland

Written by Jack van Ommen on September 22nd, 2012

We arrived in the de Maas Watersport marina, about 6 kms north of Venlo, in the late aternoon. I tried to get into the city dock in the center of Venlo, but it was too shallow.There are bicycles available for the guests here and I think I will go into Venlo to go to mass, in the morning. I have not heard back from the Thalys Train lost and found about the Nikon camera I left on their train to Amsterdam. I am posting one of Ce Ce’s photos. We went right through Roermond. The weather was blustery and a cold wind blew from the N.W. but I was amazed by the many small sail boats on the water near Roermond; and by the many large marinas. We should be close to Nijmwegen by tomorrow. The Dutch lock tenders are much more helpful than the experiences I had on the Belgian Meuse.
