Day 14 & 15
At what point do I jump in and tell you what is happening? It seems to me that something is going on all the time, with one thing running into the next. So I will jump in here, in a café in the small village of Doorwerth, Holland.
My plan to get to the last lock before the Rhine opens out for hundreds of Km has been achieved. The next lock after here being at Mainz, then I turn left and go up the River Main. The relief in arriving at this lock, where the boats will have to stop to get through was very uplifting, but short lived. The lock here is huge. The quay side is nearly 3m above the water and the quay is about 600m long.
