Late in the morning Carla and Marcel took us for a drive to see their boat. Marcel had been working to replace rotten boards which was interesting to see. A very good sized boat, quite impressive. Then we went to Spakenburg, a beautiful old fishing village. It was market day so was bustling. In this village, some of the resident ladies still wear the traditional dresses. It is one of the ...
