Leaving Maastricht

Our ten days in Maastricht have passed quickly. We have been patiently waiting for Michael's International Certificate of Competence, the barge driver's licence to arrive. The overdue package finally arrived in the mail Saturday and the only thing missing among the contents was the license. So today we need to move on to Belgium, as we have a flight to catch on Thursday to New Brunswick.

Michael holds his Masters Certificate, Unlimited Tonnage as he was a Naval Officer and a Captain of a Canadian naval ship. We hope they will let us pass through the border and into the Belgium canals. Our plans to be in France by mid-August did not materialize.

In the meantime we say "Good-Bye" to the Netherlands and "Hello" to Belgium.
