At Beaulon we found a nice mooring space at 1:47PM after having done just three locks and less than four hours of cruising. This area is popular with boats and campervans alike. In the past the number of sockets was limited, sometimes causing a form of ‘discussion’ between the two breeds of travelers because the sockets were/are only, repeat: only, meant for use by boats. Nowadays the campervans have their own sockets. Problem solved. Another story is, of course, fishing. A part of the campervan-guys like to fish. So far, so good. Sometimes they do their fishing unfortunately at a space, especially created for mooring boats. We always wonder why, there’s plenty of space for fishing, unsuitable for boats – what on earth is the difficulty in grasping that?? Anyway, we’re told that a Frenchman refused to move when a boat with a fluently French-speaking Belgian wanted to moor. It is said that the Belgian, after having had a fruitless ‘discussion’ with the Frenchman, threw the latter in the canal and kicked his equipment around. True or false, it was a nice story.

Jaja, 't schiet op. Maar rustig aan, want de Nijkerkersluis is nog een paar dagen geblokkeerd. (En een 'Vollenhove' zal ik -als ik er aan toe kom- een n toevoegen...)
