This morning we had to be up early to get the tram to the train at 7.15. Our train left Rotterdam at 7.55 and we had to swap at Antwerp to get to Brugge. We arrived in Brugge to what looked like rain clouds descending over they city. It was warm enough but these grey clouds hovered over the city.

... 8211; slept in a little [we deserved it!] and rocked up to Haarlem. Missed the 12:00pm boat, and were very lucky to get on the 1:00pm one. The boat ride was nice, and the town is beautiful. We sat by a windmill and had a late lunch. What a nice way to spend the day. Back to Leiden, and we went by the river and snoozed on the grass under the sun, for an hour. We wake up, then stumble on the Leiden Loop sign, so we got a bonus 90 ...
