For Monday the forecast had been for cooler and wet weather, but we were lucky, we had a great sunny day and it was quite warm.
Nicole and I were going to meet halfway between Houten and Wijchen and therefore we'd settled on Echteld.
Nicole had brought their folding bikes, so set off on our bikes in search of a few caches. It actually got quite hot and I was grateful I didn't have to wear a helmet like we have to do in Australia. It would've been all too much in the heat.
The ride through the polders was beautiful. Finding caches only a bonus where I'm concerned! If there'd be anything I'd miss at home is the carefree bike riding through the lovely green and wide polders.
We did find a few caches though, and a few we didn't.

Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept 1 & 2, 2015
We mainly had a few quiet days at home. On Tuesday I did some groceries shopping and picked up Leonie and Ferdy from the train in Nijmegen.
On Wednesday we also stayed home. Leonie wanted to catch up on some washing after their trip to Paris; we got some more groceries and after dinner we had a short walk through the immediate area.
The weather has turned quite cool. The sun is still out, but doesn't bring any warmth. However, seeing the sun from behind the windows is pleasant enough compared with overcast days.
