Here is a very rare site in Holland, a marina without any boats.
The reason is the marina here at Hemmeland (Monnickendam) is being dredged to make the water deeper for the boats that are normally here. All the boats that are normally parked here have been moved out of the way so the dredger can do its work.
Here’s our home at our winter berth. We’re tucked away in a warm corner of the marina and nicely out of the wind.
Here’s a flashback to 2015 – Amsterdam Sail. The next Amsterdam Sail will be in 2020.

This photograph was taken in October 2012 when the keel for our boat, Lucie, was laid. We have now been living on Lucie for over 3 years! We’ve just moved to our winter berth in Holland.
People seem to have lost their way today. This will get you home. Steady as she goes!
