Queen for a day

We took another 15k ride this morning since Sam didn’t seem to have any further problems or complaints about his ear. We didn’t want to miss Koninginnedag, or Queen’s day here is the Netherlands. As we rode into Middelburg there were all the signs I would expect of a Queen’s day celebration – everyone wearing orange, wearing crowns, people selling their things on the street, and Freddy Mercury blasting in the background. It was a wonderful sight. We spent some time wandering the market in the center of Middelburg, did some people watching, and then rode home. Having your work day start at 2:00 p.m. puts a damper on Queen’s day festivities. I don’t have the camera up here and I think Jen is preparing a post regarding Queen’s day, so you might as well head on over to www.homeroamers.com to see what she is cooking up. I have no doubt it includes an observation on urinals, so it’s bound to be interesting.
