Today is Open Monument Day in Doesburg which means that we were able to tour several buildings (including cellars) that were built as early as the 1300's). This was a true rest day, so we strolled through Doesburg, listened to carillon music and did a lot of people watching.
We decided on a picnic lunch of cheese, sausage, wine, fresh apples, and stroopwaffles. We went back to the Veluwe National Park and ate, drank, and relaxed before a great view. We drove through the countryside into Germany and stopped to look at a castle nearby. We had a fabulous dinner at Villa Copera on the Rhine river. Great food, wine, atmosphere made us forget we were cyclists - until the coat check person brought out the Pearl Izumi cycling jackets!
The cold, cloudy weather is clearing, so we're looking forward to getting back on the cycles tomorrow.
