So what were the noteworthy things? I went for two nice long runs. I tripped over a tree root on one of the runs. I had a beer in the garden with my mother. It took me two hours to get from my mother to my sister thanks to some distracted person who drove a lorry into a railway viaduct and stopped all train traffic. I had pizza on the moors with my sister's family, in the setting sun. I spent the night in my niece's bunkbed (with her approval, of course). A discussion with my sister was fortuitously lengthened by misremembered train details. I had my chafed knee expertly cleaned by a lick-prone dog. I sauntered through downtown Hoorn with Monique, who doesn't go there as often as seems a good idea. We got mistaken for a lesbian couple (has to happen every time!). I got tucked in by my own mother twice.
It was a good visit! Should book the next one soon...
This is only half an hour runnign from my mother's house!
Ending up at Baarn railway station due to the problems at Hilversum
