Another Two Warnsdorf Closed Tours

Continuing my enumeration I have found two more closed tours that follow the Warnsdorf rule and have only seven places where the rule allows two or more choices. These points of ambiguity are shown by the white circles.

The tours start at the black dot and end at the darker outlined circle (this is not a point of ambiguity). Perhaps the tours should properly be termed "re-entrant" since the move joining the end point to the first point is extra to the construction. Any link to the black dot in the course of the construction is prohibited since it would result in a closed circuit covering only part of the board. Alternative routes at the last ambiguity lead to open tours.
