One Fun Morning...June 25 in the Netherlands
We heard the weather was changing from cold and gray to sunny and warm so we hit the road. Augie rode my bike and I got a spin on Harrie's city bike. We rode north through the area above Amsterdam called Waterland. First leg took us to Broek in Waterland. Over the past two centuries this was the quintessential Holland village. Anyone who visited Holland toured this village. Often they'd take a canal boat and spend the day. Napoleon even paid a visit. Mary Mapes Dodge also had this town in mind when she penned Hans Brinker. Next leg took us to the village of Waterland, and the last leg took us home.

We, of course, stopped for treats along the way.
Off to the market for the afternoon. We are getting ready for Sophie and Jacob's visit tomorrow!Read more
