Hangin' with the locals.
Wednesday was quieter and more relaxed. DD and I ran errands in the morning and went to Curves. In the afternoon, her boyfriend joined us, and we drove around the "neighborhood" of little villages and dikes. We also visited the equivalent of a Sams Club or Costco, where we sticked up on most of our food and candy souvenirs, at warehouse prices, rather than souvenir stand prices. We stopped at Beatrixsluis lock and dam and watched some ships move through. It really is a fascinating system. They took us by ferry to a little local restaurant not well-known to tourists, and fed us far too well. Oy. We headed home and prepared to wake and hit the road at 5am for our road trip to Berlin.
