Living Afloat: October 2010

One day of not working, just relaxing and driving to Leeuwarden to see some ships.
On the way back, I stopped on the afsluitdijk and sat there for some time. Some parts in the Netherlands are extremely beautiful!

I gave the lemmeraak 'Op Hoop van Zegen' a new life. If I didn't rebuilt her, she was likely to be scrapped. I hope the new owner has the talent and know-how to finish this project. I wish him luck with the ship.
4th October till 9th October 2016
I went to Emden (Germany) to pick up a Luxe Motor from an English friend. We brought it to Bruges. With some smaller issues on the engine, it took us a bit longer then expected. Again a nice journey, just like last month!

In the afternoon I went to Astene to the old Sashuis. This is small bar in old house, that used be the house of person responsible for the lock. It contains a very small museum. Nice to see if you are in the area.

I drove through the country to collect to miniatures of ships. One is a British fuel tanker and the other one a British steam tug. Both of them will server in the museum space aboard the Aquarel.
There was a great party in the evening in Beernem with some boat friends. A perfect way to close the evening!
