On The Nethe Canal
20 July 2011 | Lier
Changable with rain and cloud. Some wind.
As you can see we have mooved on a long way from the River Meuse now. Most of the journey on the final part of the Meuse was quite industrial but still interesting. The main change came at the junction between The Meuse and The Albert Canal, one of the principale canals in Belgium, it is massive, we where going to Maastricht but the last lock before was 13Mtr deep and had 8-10 of some of the biggest barges we have seen. 150-170 Mtr long and up to 2000 tons, waiting to enter so we decided to keep going on the Albert.
We came off the Albert on to some much smaller canals with quite unpronounsable names but prity country side and very flat.
Our next destination of any note is Gent in the next few days.
