Amsterdam, yes, Internet, not so much

We arrived in Amsterdam yesterday and found a spot at Sixhaven Marina. The marina deserves a story of its own, and that will follow, but I wanted to be sure that those of you who were awaiting notice that we'd landed would get it sooner rather than later.

Critical things to do have been finding our permanent marina for the winter and getting a phone. We accomplished those yesterday and also talked with Esmeralda. Since we haven't been able to get Internet on the boat, I didn't have any way to contact Marike, and we don't have Anouk's phone number. Marike was resourceful and saw our position report, so she showed up at the marina this morning as we were leaving to find an Internet cafe and contact her. It was so great to see her, and it definitely made my day.

We're moving to our new marina tomorrow but may not have Internet right away. It is promised one way or another, though, so please be patient, and we'll be back online with blog entries, individual emails, and photo pages on the website. Meanwhile, the best way to be sure to hear from us is to email us or post a comment.
