Living Afloat: January 2013
31st January 2013
Since four days the weather is mild but rainy. There is a lot of wind. Anyway, we decided to swap the boats next to te Watergeus. It makes it easier to load the furniture aboard my ship.
I started cleaning the wheelhouse and moving the stuff I no longer needs onto the Watergeus for storage (or another project...).

I was in Antwerp for business in the morning. While I had some time, I drove around to take pictures of houseboats and old barges...
21st January 2013
Another cold day. Now for over a week it has been freezing and snowing. Last wee we had temperatures of minus 12 degrees. Today was milder, but still cold. I ran out of water on the Watergeus. It took us 2 hours to locate the hole in the street where I could take water.
A few pictures from the last week:

Some smaller work aboard the Hornblower was done today.
6th January 2013
Time again to see my friends in London. As every year I go a few times to Brentford. Since last year, a new yard opened on an old site. It is called John's yard. The owner let me in and I had the chance of seeing a few nice barges. I have known some of them when they were still trading or just converted in a houseboat!

The first day of a new year. I wonder what new boats it will bring this year... In the meantime works continue on the Hornblower.
