Just a short hop across the Markermeer, only 45 mins, but a great sail. Moored in the old harbour , this was a good location, but very touristy. We got on our bikes and rode along the dike to Edam, you would think that Edam would be touristy because of the cheese, but it is not. It is a splendid Dutch town with lots of lovely old buildings and of course we bought some cheese. So much nicer than the stuff we get at home! We had a lovely lunch, and watched the harbourmaster work the canal bridges by hand and then cycle off to do the next one!
