Netherlands again

This week we crossed the border back into the Netherlands, following a route that last traveled 50 years ago on our return from Copenhagen by open boat.
Dortmund- Ems canal, and the link to the Mittelland

Small lock

At Haren we turn West onto a small and historic waterway, the Haren-Ruetenburg canal. which will take us across the border into the Netherlands

A contrast to the major commercial waterways

We cut a path through the duck weed

We have the waterway to ourselves

Now in the Dutch waterways we will briefly join the Rhine and then on to the Mass river heading South to Maastricht, Belgium, and France.  Watch this space.
