Adieu Amsterdam

For the last time,  we watched the beached Soviet sub adorned with graffiti  (pictured) as the ferry took us in to land. We were arriving back at the marina having been for a Sunday morning food shop at Albert Heijn in the centre of the city.

For today is our last day here. Tonight we cross the waterway to go through one lifting bridge at about 5pm when we will moor up and wait until the midnight convoy of yachts takes us through 9 bridges and one lock,  to emerge south of Amsterdam just short of Schiphol airport. 

It feels like home after 6 days. We will both miss Amsterdam. The next leg of the trip will be gentle motoring, no sailing, through Dutch country side.
