Oh busy day...washing, internetting, and waiting for customs. They came at 2pm with “Good news and Bad news”. “The good news is...you can stay longer than 6mths, and the bad news is that we were wrong”. They were very lovely admitting that they really didn’t know – but as we said, a good learning experience and now they do know for all the other non EU boats that they come across in future!!
Many of the Marinas here have bikes you can borrow (free of charge). So, as Breskens is so flat, we borrowed two bikes for the day, rode into Breskens and then caught the ferry across to Vlissingen – bikes and all. We spent hours riding around and exploring the town. We found the markets and then spent ages walking through there. Back in Breskens we further explored the town riding around, mostly on bike paths. Everyone is so used to travelling by bike – the cars give way, the bike paths are great...and best of all....there are no hills!!!!
