Bruce is back


We bailed out Bruce, scooped out buckets of dead leaves, swept up sand and dirt, threw out all the rubbish and prayed the engine would start. We'd left the motor on the boat in the freezing canal all winter. It started first try. Yeah.
The second day of Spring was gorgeous and sunny but still pretty cold. Toby drove through the Jordaan which is the picture perfect postcard part of Amsterdam, but by the time we docked back on Herengracht, I couldn't feel my feet. A warme chocolademelk and some appeltaart helped a lot.
