We start at midday as we are scheduled for the Friese Sluis for 1 pm. The lock can handle boats up to 10 metres and we have 9.8 m.

All goes well despite some flying stones and grass from string trimmers. The workers dont stop cutting while we lock through!

After the lock we pass fishing nets and spot a red mobile phone ;) on the meadow. A heavy rain shower sets in and we drive from inside for a while.

But then it dries again when we reach Munnekezijl. The only living movement today on the water are ducks.

The next village is Pieterzijl where we have a lunch break sheltered from the wind before the lifting bridge. We feel observed at the mooring. ;)
