We went down early for breakfast but lingered over our coffee. We walked to the Hertz office by the training station. Despite a small confusion about reservations, we were soon ensconced in a small Ford. The day was lovely - and so there were many cars on the road. It would have been a very pleasant day for a bicycle tour. We stopped briefly for lunch at a fast food café and again by the beach. The water was very warm - and the bay was crowded. It is amazing how shallow the sea is here. We continued inland through forest and over a hill. Eventually, we reached Rotterdam. We left our car at the (empty) airport, then took the bus to the railroad station. We found a very cheap (for obvious reasons) hotel, walked to the shopping center for Italian dinner, then back to our room.
