Bloemendaal to Leiden

The third day promised a route through a national park thence several kilometres of long beach shores, shirting along scrubby sand dunes then inland following canals often with huge industrial complexes and finally into the university town of Leiden. It threatened rain all day thankfully it held off till about 7 km from our destination then pelted down for 15 minutes so we had lunch from a supermarket under the awning. 

The dutch version of the Gold Coast equally depressing

The City Hotel Nieuw Minerva is really quite quaint reminiscent in its decore of Fawlty  Towers!
