The Hotel Sint Nicolaas was a wonderful find with interesting decor, delicious breakfast & a really comfortable bed. Though it was more expensive than our usual accommodation, it was only 20E more than the sleazy hotels around the corner, so worth every cent.

And if you don't have a sweet tooth then you might enjoy the lovely quaint cafes at every turn, most of which ...
... out the photo below. Going below deck it really gave a sense of how foul conditions must have been on these ships with slaves trapped down there for weeks on end: horrendously bad. The museum also had some nice pieces including figureheads from old ships, paintings, navigational equipment etc.
We didn't head too far out for dinner this evening as we're both tired out from all the walking. No alcohol tonight either! ...
