(original date of this entry: June 7, 2014)At Ridderkerk we crossed the platform to find a smaller boat to Kinderdijk. Alice was upset that she'd missed an opportunity to take pictures of some old ships at a nearby dock. She mentioned this to the skipper, a friendly man with a white beard, and he offered to steer the boat past it so she could take pictures, which presumably she will use as a basis for paintings.
We returned to the dock and got another ferry across the Lek to the town of Krimpen aan de Lek (there's another Krimpen on the IJssel), then cycled up the LF-2, which here joins the N477 motorway. We ended up in Oudekerk aan de IJssel, thus missing the prescribed detour through the Loetboes, but I figured if we could find the IJssel, which abutted the town to the north, then we could head east along the river and follow it all the way to Gouda.
