Anne cooked an amazing breakfast of French toast stuffed with berries and yoghurt for all of us. We then got a taxi to the Hertz Rental car place and hired a car and set off to the Kinderdijk.
The Netherlands put on a stunning day for us to see the Windmills at Kinderdijk!
The boat cruise I wanted to do wasn't running that day, so instead we walked along the canal.. We even found some fungi. Kicking myself I wasn't carrying my macro lens!
At the end of the canal, we hopped onto one of the boats that was working and hitched a ride back to the visitors centre.
I got Anne, Jay and Gordon to pose for me...
Such a beautiful place...
Gouda is another very old town and very beautiful.
We also stopped for lunch and I ordered the eggs. It was huge – 3 huge slices of bread, lots of cheese slices and 3 eggs. I ate the eggs and cheese and felt my arteries harden with every bite! The bread - I couldn't eat!
We stuffed ourselves trying all the cheeses too - so many cheese, so little time!
Cheese was even hanging on the power lines...
I could only fit in one though and I was getting chilly so ordered a hot chocolate.
We then walked through Utrecht and went to a Surinam restaurant for dinner. More Surinam beers and beautiful food – I had a chicken satay starter only, but I was not hungry so that’s all I could manage. Although weakened and had some ice-cream floating in advocaat and mint liqueur – yum!
I was having trouble keeping my eyes open so headed back home to bed, while the others went out for a few more beers elsewhere. I was asleep before my head touched the pillow!
