Catching up, photos from our September trip to the Netherlands. Canals and boats.

Remember in September, my Sweet Husband took me on vacation to the Netherlands?
Well, I posted the first set of photos and I promised more.
Here is another installment.
Canal Boats in Amsterdam.
 Look at how the light sparkles on the water.
Reminds me of an Impressionist painting.

 Under a bridge on a water bike.
 Boats range from simple, like this one to elaborate house boats.
Beautiful Canal scene. 
This one looks like it could use a little love.
An unfortunate occurrence. 
 Classic wooden boat.
Sight seeing boat, The "Pieter Heyn I" 
 House boat.
 Bridge details seen from the water.

Living on a boat doesn't mean you can't have a garden.
If you look closely, the one on the lower left corner has a greenhouse and a porch/


The Netherlands are famous for flowers.
You will see them everywhere.


Sailing anyone?

They come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
(Yes, that is the tip of a Venetian Gondola peaking out.)



Amsterdam is a beautiful city.
Anyone want to see more pictures?

and Spontaneous who is very glad we are at home.



  1. nice...love the canals and all the stone as well...thanks for letting us take a peak at the surroundings...hope you and hubs are well and ready for winter..

  2. Been to Amsterdam several times. First I was struck by the amount of graffiti but after a day I didn't see it anymore. It's a great place with a unique feel somehow. Thanks for the memories.



So, what do you think? Did you like it? I love hearing from you.
