This is "Onbekommerd"!

Back on board!

The trip from London to the boat in Franeker is not all that far, but it takes quite a bit of time and effort. After getting up at 5:30 (BST), we took a bus, an underground, an aeroplane and 2 trains to get to Franeker mid-afternoon. The worst was a 1 hour wait at Amsterdam airport for our luggage, that's more than the 45 minute flight!
Anyway, when we got to Valk Yachts, the shipyard where Onbekommerd was built 24 years ago, she was waiting for us. We unpacked the bags and Valk kindly lent us their van to go to the shop to do the initial provisioning.
We treated ourselves (as per 'tradition') to dinner ashore, tomorrow cooking on board will start.
The plan is to cross to the island of Vlieland tomorrow. The forecast for that is good tomorrow, much better than Thursday or Friday. We'll then spend Easter there.
Now it's bedtime, no pictures today I am afraid, that will come tomorrow.
We'll also tell you about our new 'toy' then, something that will improve our safety and make it easier for you to follow us!
