Sunday, 13-July-2008 - Maasbommel - Marij worked today at the annual market of Appeltern, so she didn't mind me joining the Fun on Wheels skaters for one of the nicest routes of the season--atop the smooth dike pavement along the Maas and Waal rivers. We crossed the Maas on the river ferry to reach the starting point. The weather was great, and the countryside fantastic. We took our midway coffee break in the flower garden of a charming place below the dike. Adriaan treated us to apple pie. Since Appeltern was on the route, we made a small detour to surprise Marij. Fourteen skaters were good for 45 km.
