From Dokkum, we moved southwest to Leeuwarden. A lovely city mooring, but with waterlogged lawn to jump onto to tie-up. We explored this city center, and then, after provisioning, returned aboard to move on to a very quiet lake mooring just east of Grou.
The wind changed about 140 degrees through the evening, which put us in the shelter of a few trees on the island we were tied to, and we spent a very quiet night. Kerry helped me install a new windshield wiper motor and control, which works perfectly, and helps the crew stay dry (instead of using a squeegee through an unzipped window!).
Today, we cruised a short way to Sneek (pronounced like the crawly reptile), a town where there are a large number of boat manufacturers, and where the canal through the town is a never-ending parade of all sorts of boats. We’ll stay here overnight, then move along to more cruising on the lakes of this part of Friesland.
