Friday 29 August 2014: Van Ewijcksluis
What day! Or more to the point, what a wind. Right wherever we headed it blew us along. Alkmaar for coffee and bagels, Schagen for juice and ice creams, Anna Paulawno for beers, and so finally to Van Ewijcksluis where there's a fine pub with very decent food. And so much more! Fields stinking and ripe with fresh slurry! Ducks and herons! A hippy dude in the bar. And boats. Loads of boats.
