Around the Pond: 5000 km on the North Sea Cycle Route

The day starts rainy, but the weather gets more and more sunny during the day. As I near Rotterdam I have to put on sun block again.

The NSCR, following the LF1B route, leads me through dunes, quiet roads and agricultural land. West of Rotterdam the land is covered with greenhouses.

Due to the problems I had yesterday finding a camping site I decide to stop early today. I find a nice site at Monster, an open space, lots of tents, no permanent residents as you find in so many places. Even the reception is open till 7 p.m. What is different to all campsites I've been so far on this journey: you have to bring your own toilet paper. I discover this just in time...
