We decided to go sailing for some days when the weather allowed on Saturday. The sun was up, wind from the back and the current with us, we did 9 knots and it was great. We decided to go to Urk, a old island in the lake of Ijsselmeer and we are still here in writing moment due to a force 8. It came in yesterday and it has not stopped since, it picked up today and the boat was rocking in the marina. Everyone was up checking fenders and the ropes. We lay great as always when the husband always ties for storm. Urk is a lovely fishing village that use to be a island back in the days, now its connected o the mainland but you can feel its been a island really. The view out on Ijsselmeer is breathtaking sometimes. Its a very christian and during Easter they dress up nice and go to church, some even up to 4 times a day! So many churches around here. You still see some in traditional Urker clothing. The season has not started yet but some boats are out but Urk is dead quiet, in the summer its blooming with pubs, restaurants and ice cream stores that are open.
