Dauwtrappen (cycling early in the morning)

Marne and Elaine are still keeping us company, we really have a great time. And our house will be very quiet when they're leaving on saturday to Oegstgeest. Wich is lucky rather close to The Hague. Because it's Ascension Day, and this is a public holiday in the Netherlands, Rob and I were free from work. So we organised this very typical dutch thing.

What do the Dutch on Ascension Day? They go cycling or walking very early in the morning, when the dew is still on the meadows (dauwtrappen). Well we didn't go that early, but we did have a very nice cycling tour: Haagse Bos, Royal Palace "Huis den Bosch", Parc Clingendeal for coffee, monument on the Waalsdorpervlakte, Meijndel for pancakes, the beach and then back home. They did a great job: 18 kilometers!

Is there a sewing machine packed in the bike bag?
