The protest march against the rain last saturday worked, ha,ha, although the better weather was predicted allready for the coming week. Anyway everybody enjoyned going out yesterday as here at the beach in Muiderberg.
We biked (with many others) to the little town Muiden, 14 km from our home.
It is a very nice road through farmland with wooden barns.
We passed the "Muiderslot", a castle dating from 1370 at the mouth of the river Vecht, some 15 kilometers southeast of Amsterdam.
And here we are in Muiden, a pretty little town with a lock where in summer many yachts have to pass. It is always a touristic attraction because the boats have to fit in the lock which isn't easy. The men always stands behind the steering wheel shouting against the woman in the front to tie the rope.
It is hilarious for the audience sitting on the terrace along the lock.
The bridge turns open and the boats can pass.
We had a nice beer with "bitterballen", crunchy deep-fried meatballs with mustard, before biking home another 14 kilometers.
