WEDNESDAY JULY 27

Av EvaLena Hallgren - 27 juli 2016 11:05

Leaving the last camp site in Germany Mom had to negotiate this road, a little scary but as long as she meets no one it'll be ok

 

 

 

There was a family of swans living there, and the Dad was a real mean guy, he hissed at me as soon as he saw me. I was doing nothing I swear,I don't understand but Mom tried to explain it was because he had babies and she would hiss too if she thought anyone would threaten me. Good to know. We do have each others backs.

 

   


Back on the road again Jaaaay, at a price of 474 Euro Naaaay. The reason it got so expensive is I had to change both pads and disk because it was nothing at all left of the pads and you could see the metal scraped up.
oh well, another lesson learned, which is don't break down in Germany it's impossible to get help there.
While we were waiting for Lucy we went to a type of a Diner and sat outside on a very nice patio. Mom decided to order lunch, but since she didn't understand one word of the menu she told the waitress "surprise me", and boy did she ever. Out came 3 balls and a fat sausage. The balls were brown and had some kind of brown sprinkles ? hard as a rock, but in the middle, there was a gray slimy stringy soft mush. The sausage was dark brown and had a very hard shell, the inside had the same gray slime but not quite as soft. Mom gave me some and I thought it was ok, but she was afraid I get sick if I get too much.The french fries with mayonnaise was ok. Well, Mom says if this is Dutch food, she'll be living on bread and cheese and sticky cookies.

Mom left the camera in Lucy ??? so there are no pictures from the town close to the German border named Landgraaf. It seemed so depressing, every single house was built of dark brown bricks, and their front doors are directly out in the street. Mom walked by and looked into people's homes, how they had decorated and that's rude I think.


The countryside looks just like Florida minus the palm trees. It is flat and a lot of swampy waters everywhere. I do think this must have been the week to fertilize the fields because it sure smelled yummy all the way, Mom said it smelled like shit. Again we're driving towards the brightest spot on the sky.

 

 

We passed Rotterdam not wishing to spend any time in a big city we continued on, and the sky looked a lot brighter out west.
All of a sudden Mom saw the sign for Antwerp, "it's only 30 miles, we can go to Belgium" I said NO and NO, stick with the plan for a change and she did.

 

   

We finally arrived in Delft the city Mom had in mind, and now Alice in the box had some fun with Mom. We saw a sign to a campsite, but then it was gone. Alice took over and lead us on a scenic tour, but we finally arrived. Mom made a note of a lake we passed that there was a lot of birds, and she saw several storks. Not the ugly wood stork we have, this was the pretty one with red legs.

We don't read Dutch but the picture says it all 

 


Early morning even before coffee we went for a bike ride to see if the storks are up yet, but they weren't. There was hundreds or thousands of Canada geese and lots of ducks but  not as exciting to see as a stork would have been.

 

 

 

this is one strange tent? camper? trailer ?

 

 

 


Now we're going to bike into town, looks very pretty here. No sun but at least it isn't raining

 

 

 

see you later ...............

We both had the best night's sleep and woke up early to a very foggy and damp morning. After coffee (for Mom) we went for a walk in the quiet woods. Mom decided to stay here one more night to rest it's a very rustic place but it's quiet and dark at n...
