Still hot — still happy ;’-)
A delightful day in the country side. Delightful bucolic ride along a dike that took us through farmland and farms amongst the many animals: a horse standing next to its newborn so young it had not gotten up for its first steps yet; adorable ponies with their teeny little offspring following them along; sheep, shorn and not; and “Oreo” cows. What a morning.
Then we took another free five minute ferry ride to the quiet (no shops open yet except for the bakery, oh my) town of Culemborg.
The cycling group of school children were on a field trip learning about WWII. How good a lesson is that! And by bicycle. Of courst the Dutch are born to bicycling so they each and all have a bike and — in working order. It warms ones heart to see this group of youngsters enjoying learning and ridng their bikes as second nature.
We had our lunch at a place that served Dutch Pancakes, so even though we had packed our lunch on the boat, Susan and I (and several others) chose to try a pancake — bacon and apple for us was very good.
Time to head home to our boat so we could shower and make it to the appointment for our working Winmill tour! We are so busy. I will try for more about that tomorrow as I think I have used up my allotted mbs for this round of wifi time.
Ending this hot and happy day ;’-)
