A slow morning unwound itself, landing on us all enjoying a breakfast together.
Later on, we all walked the almost 3 or so km. into Doesburg together, desiring to go to ‘Ferry Snacks’ once again 😉
Filling up on nasi balls and fries.
And ice cream.
Like, really filling up… to the point that even the thought of them right now, isn’t all that amazingly appealing. Meaning we did our job of filling up on what we could, while we could, rather well I suppose 🙈
We meandered around town, popping into a couple shops, and simply enjoying the time together.
Pictured here, you can see chestnuts lining the street.
There are many of them around, and their dangerously spiked chestnuts, lay in loads upon the ground around them, piercing unassuming shoes now and again 🤪
It wouldn’t have been a trip into Doesburg on a chilly day, without having gotten hot chocolate from ‘De Waag’ 😉🖤
The pub/café/restaurant that lays claim to being the oldest in The Netherlands.
It was just as delicious as we remembered, and we enjoyed it as we began our walk back towards the house.
We took a different route home from the one John and Inge took.
Mike deciding to show me the paths he used to walk, the soccer field he’d played on. The school that he once attended.
The pond where he’d feed the ducks with scrap bread from the store.
Where friends had lived, the house where he’d been born and lived his first few years in.
It really was a walk full of historical monuments and information 😉
Evening brought with it some preparations for the next day, as Mike and I would be taking the father-in-laws RV for a ‘ Tour de France ‘ minus the cycling and whatnot 🤪
