Soggy crackers soaked by stinky warm canned tuna...and people were coming back for seconds.

We logged a lot of gorgeous miles today, my buddies and
me I me (whatever - all 3 of us yo). It was less about the destination, than it was about the journey...but we did an awesome loop from home (smack in the middle of the city) to a town called Broek in Waterland and back. The ferry was probably the highlight for the kids, which is funny because it was about a 2 minute ride...I loved seeing the country side and admiring the perfectly maintained homes, gardens and buildings in Broek. If we had more time, or if we could pedal faster and stop less, it would be so fun to do a bigger loop - it was about 10 more kilometers to Marken or Volendam. Maybe we'll save that adventure for when Papa can join us...an extra set of adult arms and legs would probably be helpful for something that ambitious.

While at the beach, I made time for some really great running. One particular morning run was really fabulous. I found a trail along the ridge of the dunes. It felt amazing to run hills again...they are hard to find in this country! If I looked to the left, it was gorgeous dutch country side for miles, to the right, it was beach. And of course there was a windmill.
We just returned from a really fun long weekend, which included lots of time on the (cold, windy, wet) beach and a trip to the National Voetbalmuseum de Voetbal Experience. I have never seen O and W love a museum like they loved this one.
