The program for the day was to motor to the center of Haarlem, take a leisurely walk to the market square then visit the Frans Hal Museum and return to the boat for a late lunch. The boat will then depart for Rotterdam. A "rough" schedule for old foggies like us LOL.

There are always bikes to remind us that this is a great bike country.

A mother shopping with her daughter in tow.

Love those bread!

This local biker signaled our group to give him room to pass through and we gladly obliged. A truly civilized interaction. This is not going to happen in the inner cities of LA and Orange counties. If you see a group standing on the street, better find another way to your destination or you will find your bike wrap around your neck...if you are lucky LOL.

Naughty! I don't think you'll find a pic like this one hanging in a museum anywhere in Pinas LOL.

The oldies taking another break LOL. Not really...they were waiting for the group they were following to finish their guide's talk.

I'm always fascinated with narrow, traffic-less and peaceful street

A pleasant weather for topdeck viewing

Another narrow bridge to clear! This is getting to be a habit.

This is THE entire onboard entertainment. You can listen to him sing, dance to his music or sit in the bar and get drunk every night.
