Steenwijk, our present temporary residence inside its dead-end harbour-for-visitors. We arrived at 12:34PM and moored on the right-hand side, facing the Church Tower. As we had reason to prefer the other side, facing the exit, the harbourmaster assured us that we would be able to turn at the end – where the waterway widens, creating a genuine winding hole. (How to pronounce ‘winding’? A never-ending story…) We cruised towards the winding hole, turned… and our little ship became properly stuck. On hindsight -as always- even this picture, taken from a bridge in the centre of the harbour, shows the waterway narrowing but we (1) believed the harbourmaster and (2) did not judge the situation beforehand ourselves properly. As a consequence, we were forced to leave the entire harbour and after that come back halfway – all in reverse, a total distance of close to 800 metres/half a mile! Not that much this week, but we hope you enjoyed yourselves anyway.
