Hindeloopen in the mizzle

We drove from Amsterdam northwards to Hindeloopen in Friesland, where our boat Stroemhella was built (over 30 years ago). A very misty morning and the cows looming out of the white softness covering the flat fields... Found our favourite cafe open in Hindeloopen (La Plage?) and ordered their speciality -- mustard soup. Delicious -- and just in time, because a power cut extinguished all electrical conveniences... So no coffee. But a wonderful home-made cherry cake of great moistness and excellence! Than you Wendelien and husband (he is the cook).
Then down through Friesland and took a route eastwards, avoiding the major cities of the Netherlands and consequent Friday bottlenecks, down through the Hoge Veluwe and after getting lost in the outskirts of Maastricht, finally made it to Daniel and Nadia's, in time for a relaxed evening meal.

Above two views of Hindeloopen, and David in the galley (kitchen) aboard.
Now for playtime with granddaughter Yara...
