Thurdsday : Greetsiel

Our target for the first days rowing was the seaside resort of Greetsiel approx 30 km away. We were given 4x coxed fours gigs to use, and Martin divided us all up into our relevant boats, suffice to say it was boy/girl, boy/girl, at least I think so.

The weather would have been good for the 'Insel' but only just okay for Germany. The journey was along Canals going through quite a few pleasant little villages (Hinte, Loppersum) with lovely lawns upto the waters edge. We were goaded on our way by quite a few barking dogs, munching cows and neighing horses who I don't suppose liked the intrusion. The setting was idyllic and relaxing.

On arrival at Greetsiel we upturned the Boats on the grass and packed the oars away and all other equipment was placed in the Van. A quick meal in the nearby Fish Cafe and a short shopping trip around the Harbour shops and a chance to hear the lovely choirs of Greetsiel fathers (at least that is what Erhard told me). Personally I thought they sounded a little off cue and out of tune, but they were certainly loud and a part of the Fathers day culture of recent years.

The return journey took in a short detour to visit the Lighthouse in Pilsum. After waiting to get in, the Tour Guide sat us all down in the Tower overlooking the complete Estuary including the Islands of Norderney, Juist and Borkum, oh and Holland. She gave us an excellent insight into how you can make money from disused Lighthouses. Weddings and I think Rose Gardens are the key to success. One just has to be imaginative when creating Wedding dates in the Calender.

The Lighthouse tour was actually quite interesting and informative and thanks to the 'Church Pews' (waiting for the next Wedding) very comfortable. After the visit we all arrived back safely to enjoy a lovely bit of pasta in the Youth Hostel followed by a few beers and a look at the inside of Erhard's Rowing Club.
