I slept pretty well last night but on waking found it was raining lightly. After a good breakfast I had to decide whether to move on today, in the wet, or to stay where I knew I had a comfy room. After a bit of humming and harring I decided to stay. Of course when you are staying in a B&B there is not much to do so I decided to go for a walk in this beautiful village. I was 10 minutes out and got caught in a bit of a deluge so had to head back to my room. Later the rain stopped so I took my bike out for a look around the area.
A bike is really an excellent way to sight see as you cover more ground, you’re up a bit higher and its easy to stop if you want to take a photo or anything.
My ride took me to north Geithoorn then Dwarsgracht, both similar to where I’m staying but less popular with tourists. I found a cafe and sat under a large umbrella out of the drizzle, had a bowl of tomato soup and made the drawing above before putting on the big rain cape/poncho I had bought in Alphen and rode back keeping reasonably dry. Guess I’ll venture out again for tea.
