Heerenveen/It Hearrenfean - Heerenveen/It Hearrenfean

This is what happened last Thursday. By golly!! All photographs from last week are on the (too deep) bottom of the Boorne/De Boarn in Nes/Akkrum. A new phone has now been purchased. Damage 'only' close to a whopping € 300,00. Well, of course next week a 'normal' blog again. The past week we had a sister(-in-law) on board. She traveled last Monday into Heerenveen/It Hearrenfean by train. We cruised into Akkrum, followed by Grou. Most pleasant it was! After that we returned into Heerenveen/It Hearrenfean where she left us on Saturday. We are now for the 6th -we think- time this season in Heerenveen/It Hearrenfean. For the Dutch readers among you: we are called Heintje Davids by a fellow boater... (The ship they live on is named 'Avontuur' btw.)

Mooring in Heerenveen/It Hearrenfean-centre is for free, but offers no water - and only limited electricity, namely only one pole with four connections - see the photo. At the beginning of the summer season we stayed there once, but during the weekend Heerenveen's/It Hearrenfean"s youth celebrates extensively (beer!) and tends to step on our little ship. For fun perhaps, but it prevents us from sleeping! It is very crowded indeed and sometimes such a mess that we won't moor there anymore. Except for today, Monday: we're having trouble using our washing machine...The inverter seems to be ooo 😰.



Engine ran this week 7,0 hours (420 minutes): on Tuesday 2,1 hours (126 minutes), Wednesday 1,4 hours (84 minutes), Thursday 1,0 hour (60 minutes) and Friday 2,5 hours (150 minutes).


Generator this week 6,2 hours (372 minutes) up till now, Monday 3:30PMPM. We’ve used oven as well as washing machine and needed the generator.


Weather: sunny, sometimes (too) hot.


Hope to see you all again next week!
