This windmill is located in Leiden., which is home to Holland's oldest universities with numerous cafes, shops and museums.
Is anyone else fascinated with graveyards?
Peace Palace at The Hague. We took a tour and heard how the US does not participate. Countries are bound by the arbitration dispensed here. Guess we don't want anyone else telling us what to do.
Sally Price from Hilton Head will kill me if she sees this picture! Rain and miles on the road turns a kind, sweet woman into something else....
Gloria, don't you dare! Dorothy Martin from Brighton and Hilton Head. She really is very nice. Really!
Bob Van den Bergh has accompanied us on every trip! He lives in Amsterdam. He is helping Leslie with low tire pressure.
The top island is Texel Island. In 2005, Jim, Jamie, Joe, Leslie, Ernie and I took a train from Harlaam to the bus station, to the bike rental station, to the boat to get to Texel Island. It poured rain was freezing cold and the wind blew 30 knots. We didn't go to Texel on this trip...
The markets are in the central square in most cities. Fish, cheese, underwear or whatever else you may need is for sale.
We rented 3 speed bikes, except for lucky Jim with his 7 speed bike. Our panniers allowed us to carry our rain jackets, sunscreen, water and munchies.
Our final ride. This is the group that rode through Utrecht...at night. We rode about 70 miles that day in the rain and ending in the dark, as we searched for our hotel. That is our idea of fun! There are people out there who have called us crazy! We love crazy!
Thank you Pat and Ernie! You have enhanced our lives!
We have enjoyed our bicycle trips with you - from riding along the Danube through Austria and Germany to Vermont, to Williamsburg and Jamestown, to Cape Cod-Nantucket-Martha's Vineyard, to Hilton Head, from Burlington to Montreal and two trips to the Netherlands. We will miss our trips as you retire, but we know where you live!
