From Wannaperveen we cycled up to Steenwijk and caught the train to Amersfoort where we stayed at the old Tabaksplant hotel right near the east gate and well-preserved walking zone.  We had a lovely late lunch on the veranda at Madonnas overlooking the canal.  The next day we cycled back to HIlversum stopping for lunch at the Vuurs Restaurant near the Vuursche castle on the edge of the deep woods en route.

Our airbnb was walking distances to Hilversum's charming walking zone and the Oude Haven.  Dinner - lots of mussels and wine at the Open Kueken.  Saturday was shopping, return the rented bikes, snacks & wine at the  Restaurant Parc overlooking the Oude Haven (Old Harbor) where we saw a heron stalking and finally catching a HUGE fish from the Koi pond. Sunday the girls headed back to Schiphol for the long flight back to Orlando and we continued on our travels.
