Harderwijk (Gld) - Amersfoort (U)
Eemmouth during the day
On Monday the 10th of October we left Harderwijk at 10:20AM. We passed the Nijkerkersluis at 12:50PM. This lock was closed from September 26 to October 7 due to maintenance work. That is why we decided not to arrive in Amersfoort at the end of September but at the...
Eemmouth at night
...beginning of October. After a somewhat boring journey we finally arrived at the mouth of the river Eem where we moored at 2:40PM. A journey of no less than 4 hours and 20 minutes! The photo on the right shows what it looks like at night with a full moon. In one word: atmospheric.
Nice weather, and a beautiful river Eem
On Tuesday, October 11, 2022 we left our overnight stay at the mouth of the Eem at 9:20AM. More or less rushed, because of the chance madman like that morning would come along again. The weather was great, judging by the photo on the left.
Onze Lieve Vrouwetoren ('Lange Jan') in picture
In the photo on the right, about 1/4 from the left, you can see Amersfoort's Onze Lieve Vrouwentoren ('Lange Jan'/’Long John’ in popular speech). When this tower (the 3rd highest in The Netherlands) comes into view, it is clear that we are almost back in Amersfoort.
THIS SEASON’S STATISTICS.
Engine ran this season over 130 hours. (We remember 400 hours from our narrowboat-era.)
Generator this season almost 65 hours.
Both engine and generator will have their well deserved new oil and filters before we leave for next season.
Weather: What can you say? We’re in The Netherlands – that country, next to the sea, has a temperate maritime climate. We’re more than happy with it.
Hope to see you all again next SEASON!
En dan nog even en Amersfoort in zicht
De laatste foto: ongelooflijk!!!!!
