These guys didn't even fish. They were too sick.
Today is our last day in Holland and since John has had an experience of a lifetime, fishing with Sake on a fishing trawler 120 kms out in the North Sea. Lucky for John he still has his Navy legs and loved the day. He and Sake caught lots of fish with Sake catching a Spanish Makreel, which was the only one caught. Many didn't survive the beginning of the trip, getting sea sick in the four hour journey getting to the fishing spot. They had a sensational day and stunk like fish and beer when they got home. Many a song was sung on the four hour journey back to land. They guys on the boat have requested Rex Hunt to come to the next fishing trip next year.

Delft was also another Dutch town with plenty of history. It has the Delft Porcelaine factory and the huge church is the final resting place for all of the Royal Family. A very long drive to Delft, a very long day in the wet as well.

Sake's loves to ride the bike in Summer, winter is a bit to slippery in the icy conditions.
