So here we are, on a canal in Belgium, more or less on line, that is we need to be outside, my PowerBook must be held at shoulder height or sit on the wheelhouse roof.
At the moment my formal holidays are over, and of course I am on board, so I'm 'back' home, but it takes a few days to get the good ship Luxor back to Rotterdam.
At weekends travelling is hardly possible in this part of Belgium, so we make the best of it. Val and the dog came to join me Friday evening and we decided to stay in Turnhout, because we liked the atmosphere of the town and the region. And guess who performed (free) at the Turnhout market square? The Dubliners! We didn't go, too busy visiting our blogging friends and getting a taste of the sangria we bought at the supermarket.
This is our view of the former Anco cereal works, now being redeveloped to become luxurious apartments - in a small provincial town.
Evening view of the old commercial port of Turnhout, now a luxurious marina with super deluxe apartments.
Val, not only an excellent writer, but an able deck hand as well.
