... fun and fast with the wind behind us. 60kms done and dusted, time to enter the Tour de France.
Back at camp the sun was hot and so after a cold beer we lay back in the sun with our books and waited until they slapped us in the face. Sleep and tan.
Here is some interesting information on agriculture in Holland that I was not aware of:
Facts & figures
- Holland is the world's ...
... up camp we took our bikes for a short ride down to the dyke to look at the sea. The sea is very flat and very shallow. The rocks were covered in small mussels and close to the harbor there were oyster beds with huge oysters. The area is a holiday destination and is fantastic for sailing, kite boarding, cycling, bird watching and hiking.
And so back to camp for a braai with cold drinks.
... They are always willing to help and their Dutch language is close enough to Afrikaans that even I can understand them. The drivers of cars have a genuine respect for cyclists and always give way to us lessor mortals. When we are driving in our camper other road users are very considerate and courteous and so far "road rage" is unknown.
And so we rode and we rode and we rode. ...
... moments, as in we've been here before, we arrived back in camp 52 kms of cycling later.
Apart from navigation confusion, the whole experience was great, as the countryside is stunningly beautiful, with meadows filled with cows and sheep and canals everywhere. The Dutch people are extremely neat and tidy. The houses are all very well maintained with picture book gardens filled with Rhododendrons in various colours. ...
... are beautifully
maintained with lush lawns, spotlessly clean ablutions and electricity for all
sites. Many have free WiFi which is a real blessing when one is trying to run a
business away from home.
After catching up with all our office work we went for a
short walk in the wind and rain before cooking up a quality South African curry
and climbing into our upstairs bed.
