Month: December 2012

Schotense vaart

29th December 2012 – I happened to be in Antwerp. A bit further is Schoten. It has a big canal full of old barges. I spent he whole afternoon driving there, taking pictures and speaking to people. It was dry for the first time in ten days as well!

Izegem

9th December 2012 – Always working is no good to anybody. I drove to Izegem to see some boats and to visit a small exhibition in the local yacht club. I have pretty much the arrogance to say I know most spits barges in Belgium. Nevertheless, I discovered one I didn’t know. I looked it up in the evening and found her history. Sometimes I wonder what I like more, converting them or looking for their history…

Small updates

7th December 2012 – It’s been quiet on the blog and the website. This doesn’t mean I took some time off, not at all! I’ve spent a lot of time driving around to see some boats. It is becoming colder, so working in the evening aboard the Hornblower is not that nice. We had our first day of snow as well today.

When I have some more time, I’ll try to update the site again!
