Clothing Optional

After a bike ride (Lau chose to rollerblade) away from the city of Utrecht and through a small section of Holland countryside, we arrived at a small man-made lake. As you ride down the bike path around the lake you come to these individual hidden coves. Some are nude, others are clothing optional. We chose to keep our clothes on even though Lau said if we weren’t with him he would have chosen to go nude. As comfortable as we were with Lau, the prudent ways of American life are hard to overcome.
An amazing part of Holland is the infrastructure set up for bicycles. The trip to this lake was an easy five miles from our place inside the city. We, of course, road bikes. There are bike paths on every road, including beside highways. These paths have mini bike stoplights, yield signs and individual lanes. Bikes rule the streets.
