Hello, glad to be in the sunshine again after a Code Red day, Lola & I cycled down to Vrouwenakker. There is a bridge near where the Amstel and the Kromme Mijdrecht meet. Kromme means Curve apparently.
I couldn’t tell at the time, but over this side of the bridge, I was in the province of South Holland.
We stayed on our side of the bridge as the path follows the Amstel. We cycled back up to Uithoorn in no time, we saw a stork , muscovy ducks and all the usual suspects.
We popped over the bridge to Amstelhoek & turned right to explore Mennonietenbuurt. It’s just a bit of river frontage and 2 or 3 streets. a school, a cafe & a Polish shop!
And finally! Remember that crazy red lamp I received for Pakjesavond? (£4.25) well we found a blue one for £2.50! Had to have it! Also we got some lavender bags – there was a basket overflowing with them, it smelt heavenly.
