We got up on time --- [ profile] bunny_hugger got up on time, and woke me --- to make breakfast at 8:30 am, just as we figured it'd start. The owner's son pointed us to a seat, and where the cereals were (I got a Weatabix, to feel as English a breakfast as possible, though Coco Pops were tempting too) and he rapidly got ready scrambled eggs on toast, with toast on the side, and a basket of toast come in later. We didn't actually have a toasted toast sandwich, but could have. I also tried, at [ profile] bunny_hugger's urging, a bit of aptly named brown sauce and that's pretty good a combination. We got the Wi-Fi password, and went back to our rooms to check mail, at 9 am, at the end of breakfast and non-appearance of anyone else. Maybe we misunderstood breakfast.

What roller coasters were we able to ride? What was the attraction that had the only noteworthy queue of the day, and how did it connect to Efteling? What articles of clothing did we leave the park with which we didn't have when we entered? What popular 1980s blockbuster movie was involved in our evening? The answers may surprise you! )

We wandered around the piers not quite to closing, but near enough, and walked back slowly, as if we could make the time before leaving pass more slowly yet.
