This morning, on waking up at 6:30, the temperature in the cabin was 4 degrees. That was a record! I quickly switched the heater on and went back to bed. An hour and a half later it was comfortable enough to get up again to make the morning coffee (which we always have in bed).
Today we plan to carry on South to Elburg. Like Blokzijl, that is an old fishing village, which was situated on the Zuiderzee coast before the Zuiderzee was closed off with the 'Afsluitdijk' in 1932. I have a few interesting maps showing that change, which I will try to put in the next blogpost.
