Grou(w) - Harlingen/Harns
Jay’s favourite running-space, being an island within the Pikmeer/Pikmar near Grou(w), was (especially by him: reluctantly) left on Monday the 8th of April on 9:24AM. On the way, cruising the Wargaastervaart/Wergeaster Feart near Warga/Wergea, we met a rather impressive than...
...beautiful three-master. Later on, already cruising the Van Harinxmakanaal south (‘underneath’) of Leeuwarden/Ljouwert, a beautiful one-master overtook us. We’d meet the last one shortly after this moment again, as tall ships have to wait for bridges – and we generally don’t.
When the light is red/green it’s a sign that a bridge will open at short notice. And, of course, the green light indicates a free passage. As the second picture shows the headroom is over 5 meters (16,5...
...feet) - and our highest peak (the mast) stretches to just under 4 meters (just over 13 feet), so we can (again) ignore the lights on this type of bridges. We always pay attention to oncoming traffic though.
This week’s statistics.
Engine ran during 5 hours and 48 minutes (5,8 hours) – Monday 4,7 hours, Wednesday 1 hour and 6 minutes (1,1 hours). Yes, we did go forward at a leisurely pace last week!
Generator this week 3 hours and 42 minutes (3,7 hours).
Weather: Monday: sunny. Wednesday: sunny, hard & cold wind. Today (Sunday): rather sunny, still a chilly wind. The other days are not in our log-book, simply because we didn’t cruise..
Hope to see you next week again!

Dank je wel, Tineke! We zien mekaar hopelijk snel in A'foort.
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...)
