... out some other less tourist orientated windmills, but to make the day flow better had opted for the more obvious ones.
Lunch was a simple dutch sausage in a bun with mustard followed by a 'Mr Whippy' type ice cream.
Getting to Kinderdijk we wasted an hour as the Sat Nav took us somewhere else. We reckon the previous destination, which was 30 kms away had not deleted. Well that's our excuse and we havent had any problems since.
... on both sides of the river. We wonder how on earth the grapes are harvested. We did notice that there are tiny one track ride on type tracks leading up the side of the hillsides each bearing a little ride on contraption with a small seat on the back. We watched as a man scattered plant food on the vines.the Temperature today was a sunny 24 ...
... Some of them are the usual ammunition that just éxplodes'- still not something I would want to get caught in my machinery (which does still happen).
And the sad thing is some of them are gas bombs. Mustard Gas bombs.
I don't even want to think how awful that would be if an unstable Gas Canister leaked...especially with Mustard Gas. That would be beyond awful.
We then went on to our final place to see...the actual place that Flanders Fields was written ...

After making a quick stop at Cobber's Memorial, we made a quick 15 minute trip over the Belgium border into Poperinge. It was here that around 250,000 soldiers spent their time over the course of the war in the rest and recovery zone. ...
... played by four belgian servicemen.. This is a nightly ritual at 8pm, rail or shine..The bond between the Belgians & the Commonwealth allies is stronger today than ever.. So honoured to have been part of tonight's service.
Another day draws to a close with a relaxing train ride and a final walk through the beauty of Bruges as we leave for another destination tomorrow.. Another story no doubt!
