Day 1 – 5th Oct 2017

The first tour of Holland without Pete Cottle would feel very strange indeed…mainly because of the expertise that would be missed and also not in the least – the endeering wit and sat nav/venue pathfinder.

So we found the port of Dover and managed to get across the sea! It was however not uneventful as because PC was not in attendance that a couple of first time occurances manifested itself in a kind of protest…yes the sea was “lively” and it rained for the first time I can recollect when in euroland.

However, this didn’t stop the intrepid fish and maybe plant hunting. It turned out to be the case that plants were a sought after choice as all aboard appeared to have a tank to replant!

Our venues today (see events page) proved popular(as usual) with some old favourites and new specie alike purchased.
Stephen: Marble Hatchets and several types of cryptocoryne
Keith:Corydoras nattereri, cryptoheros(?) marneri.
Allan: various amazon swords, crypts and a fist load of giant vallis (must have big tank Allan?)
Peter:C.Meeki, P.Nocholsi, C.McMasteri, P.Innesi (neons tetras) and a few crypts
Robin: Nannostomus Andusei, botias histrionica, nannostomus unifaciatus and madagascar lace.
