Maastricht and more

Saturday we spent in the Netherlands, mostly in Maastricht, which is about half an hour from where we are staying. Maastricht has a pedestrian only city center and has lots of sight seeing, restaurants, and shopping. And a playground between the parking lot and the city entrance, which delighted the kids.
The city entrance dates back to 1229. We also encountered a water wheel still hooked up to gears but no longer used as a mill.
We explored a fortress church, played in the square in front of the cathedral, and went to a church that has been converted to a bookstore.
On the way home, we stopped at the highest playground in the Netherlands, near the point where Belgium, Holland, and Germany meet, and walked to where we could stand in three countries at once.
I (Clare) got Meg some unicorn shaped cheese and she enjoyed it with dinner.
