Small crumbs

Small crumbs with honey, sugar as sweet and coffee to go,

life is good with those small things, those sweet things

In the summer sun, May is gentle

the water is still and the harbor is glowing.

Clouds

When out on the water I often see all these different clouds. This was just the other day and this is pictures 360 around me. Lovely clouds and such a different sky. It was a crazy mix.

 

Gaudi of Urk

It was a different morning walk with Melvin this morning. Going through the alleys of Urk we met Geert Weerstand a local artist, a real Urker that has a gallery and a workshop in Urk where he makes art of glass on nature stone. It was beautiful and what a lovely man, he invited us with all his heart and gave us a exclusive tour of the workshop and the gallery. Geert mentioned that he was a bog fan of van Gogh and showed us  a gallery dedicated to va Gogh. Very beautiful and nothing I ever seen before. Geert is called locally ” Gaudi van Urk” Gaudi of Urk. If you ever come here make sure you take a look at the gallery, its truly an inspiration and so is Geert. Thank you Geert for your wonderful hospitality. We be back soon again. See an interview with Gaudi of Urk HERE. Its unfortunately only in Dutch and no subtitles but in the video you get to see his artwork and the beautiful Urk.

Where did it come from?

I think writing is fun but I never had a thing for poems or anything like that but just a moment ago my mind said something that I had to write down. I don’t know why and where it came from but here it is as I though I would share it with you. It was pretty cool to just get something like that running through the mind like something or someone tells you something.  I think it is time to set off soon and find out what this what all about.

A life at sea  is a life in peace, sailing the oceans for years and years

Makes my soul heal and breath, and my eyes opens more, seeing things I never seen before. Woman and man equal and same, those are the once who conquered and came.

The waves are showing us where to go, engine or sail or might even row ,we end up on different paths but should go the same what happened to the women and men who conquered and came?

Foggy Friday

Looked out the porthole this morning but could see nothing… Land is gone!! Pontoon is gone!! There is no stern on the boat!! NO wait a minute… So freakin foggy there was nothing in sight… When the fog cleared up later I managed to get some nice pics of the boat in the very lonely winterharbour. I also managed to squeeze in a quick stop at Bagel and Beans in Zwolle. In a week we are planning to set of towards Amsterdam and after that nobody really knows. We would like to go south in the end of the year if we have all the things we want and need on our list….. And as you boat people know that list never seems to end even though you might cross something off once in a while…. I guess thats the charm ♥♥♥

The list:

  • Water maker ( Portable like Berkey filter is also awsome)
  • Steering pedistal
  • Generator
  • Water heater ( ours is a hole in right now)
  • Spinnaker ( not the most important but would be great so hoping for a sponsorship)
  • Repair kit to our Perkins 4.108
  • New sailing gear
  • Sunglasses ( sponsor anyone?) 🙂
  • Bigger anchor ( we discussed his and it might be a good idea)
  • Inflatable SUP ( these are awesome when on anchor to get to shore)
