On a sleepy morning, we entered the Kiel Canal
through a small gateway,
admired a flying ferry
and checked our location by the GLONASS signal.
When we went out to a small town of Brunsbutel,
Lena put on German flag-colored suspenders and we made a photo shoot at a local bar
and the museum of the Canal.
Having sailed to the Elbe with the tide, we went down to the town of Kukshaven
and after the weather became good,
reached the Dutch town of Havenbrook.
En route we saw Dutch sailing boats
and passed the Wadden sea,
that dries up at low tide (grey on the map). We realized that we’re in Holland after we saw marijuana cigarette butts.
We tried to look like local fishermen
and walked around the city at night. A storm came up, which they allegedly even named Katya, and once we sailed off the harbor, the sail broke, so we decided to go through
And we didn’t regret it! Fairylike beauty!
And approaches to Amsterdam were not a bit worse!
And for sure, Amsterdam proper needs no praise.
Entrance to SixHaven marina is no wider than 10 meters. Navigated by GLONASS, we entered it blindly with an astonishing accuracy.
