We had a great night’s sleep last night. I didn’t take any chances. . . .two extra strength tylenol and two melatonins. READY TO ROLL today. . .
7 am. . .sunrise over the barge. . .bikes ready. . . Get your key!!!
We were off to Flora Holland, the largest flower auction in the world. It was truly massive, with trolleys of flowers moving like a specialized ballet.
We watched the flower ” stock exchange” where flower deals are made and flowers shipped out to florists worldwide, from the tiniest corner shop to large wholesales.
After an hour and a half at the auction we set off To
as Suzie says. . .
Through the woods on the outskirts of Amsterdam. . .
The ride was beautiful and peaceful. . .another one like others that took us through serene countryside. We were headed to a pancake house ” in the forest. ” as Suzie said. She also said that it was about 4 miles. That probably means at least 8 miles in Suzie-speak!!!!!!
But soon we were there, and it is truly delightful. . .
And the pannekoeken were even better. . . .
the day was beautiful and we biked through outlying neighborhoods and in to Amsterdam. Along the way we found our final windmill and a statue of Rembrandt.
and finally, back to oosterdock and the Feniks barge. WE MADE IT!!!!!!
More to come. . .
