The sun shone , no one shrieked , not even me .... and we all laughed a lot . We walked and walked , saw lots of different corners of Amsterdam and Haarlem
(my new toy , Picasa 3 , in evidence again )
We ate well , sat in cafes and did a lot of window-shopping , from Kitsch
and had a marvellous time !!
We camped at Zeeburg, which is about 15 minutes away from the centre of Amsterdam - and I think we were the smallest campervan there!
As we walked around, we admired window displays both old and new: not only are there some beautiful antique and vintage shops, there are some crafty handmade delights to be found as well - look at these cute felt houses!
Also admired many ceramic tiles in Amsterdam doorways and inside Haarlem's Catholic Basilica:
Of course, Amsterdam does not look like Amsterdam without canals (and cafes on canals)
or tulips, now does it?
In my next posts, I will show you my collection of snapshots of Dutch cats - it was so sunny they had all come out to sunbathe next to their owners' very smartly decorated windowsills... I don't know who has more impecable taste, the Dutch cat or its human!
