|Muiden’s pretty great: there’s a bridge that turns around to let boats pass and everything|
Last Sunday afternoon was sunny. So we set out for a mild adventure. We’re not really outdoorsy people, but we do like fresh air and sunshine. And neither of us hate exercise. So we cycled to Muiden in spring, even though it’s more famous in winter.
Within literally minutes of stepping out our front door we were in a park, on a green belt. We only got a little lost.
|We had lunch and watched some boats pass through the lock|
We’re not serious cyclists – we know because we were passed by a fair few of them on the way and they looked nothing like us.
But we cycled by lakes and canals and streams and sheep and along ridges over the 14 or so kilometres, and in less than an hour we were there. We ended up in the pleasant port town, complete with a castle, and had lunch by the water in the sun.
|Muiden is part of the defenses of Amsterdam, hence the cannon|
|We saw a lot of sheep too. they were all eating grass|
