    This island you can see in the middle of the lake was called the 'Startisland'. The first days you always went overthere and learned a lot of things there, how get from board without getting wet and making knots.
    Quiet, a lot of birds although there are a lot of people, nice spot to get your boat thitened up and more practical unique qualiltlies.

    Just next door to the Pikmeer is this bar / disco. Its open in summertime from 2 pm with a terras. They have special party's (now) and in the sailing season its open 7 days a week! We had a great time in this bar / disco, and the great thing was: We could drink till we dropped (till 11 pm) cause our bed was just 10 steps away hee hee!

    My friend and i went by train...its so nice to see the Netherlands coming by and you dont have to drive and can have a coffee or tea. Its also like you are starting your holiday the moment you are in the train, there is nothing you have to do, than make sure to get out at the right moment! A boat is the best way of getting around in Grouw (and the...

    The good thing is they have a little boat, that when you are almost lost on the other site of the lake they came and pick you up.The bad thing is you are so tired of this surfing that you cant go out in the evening...if you never ever have surfed before, its harder then you think! We had a good time though so if you wanna have a try just make sure...

    I never have learned how to manage the sailboat....i am hopeless. When there is to much wind i cant stand it and hate sailing, when there is to little wind i love it but all the other would love to kill me for that ha ha
    The kind of boat you see on the picture, is the kind of boat we have to learn to sail with. I amused myself but i never would do it again...

    Favorite thing: Grouw is a little village, near the Pikmeer and the Princes Margrietcanal. It is the meancity of the community of Boarnserhim. It used to be a special place for boatman, fisherman and murchandeisers. Grouw has a bout 5600 people who live there. Its famous for its
    wateractivities and is also called the meancity of the Friese waterland.

    Fondest memory: Where you come from is not really a point, cause there is always a good bus, train, watertaxi or car (of your own) going the right way. In the former times you couldnt come into Grouw so easy, cause it was most of the time floded.
    There are a lot of nice shops, a lot of bars and its a place for young and old people all together.
