Here is a yellow hollyhock for you. Pretty, huh?
I also chose a red and white house for you with some light pink hollyhocks in the garden.
There is a lot of renovating happening here.
Here's a peek up a canal.
We came upon some costumed cup stackers (I think!)
Hello again, Vincent!
Let's go for a ride upon the canals!
The houseboats have their version of gardens. Nice!
I know how you like red chairs. Have a visit! I'll bring you something from the bakery.
Are you staring at me, Swan?
Here is a nice back yard for a pup!
Would you like this green houseboat? We could paint the picket fence.
Did you know there are over a thousand bridges in Amsterdam?
How would you like to operate the claw? Somebody has to pull out the buried treasure (bikes!)
Oh, we DO like red houses, don't we? I like EVERYTHING red. When I get home, I shall ponder painting my cupboards red. I was going to paint them black, but now I have changed my mind. Silver heart knobs? Sound good?
Here we are cruising by in the canal boat.
Two ferry boats: Amsterdam style!
Finally, a man's red boat.
It's VERY warm here. When we are walking around on the cobblestones, we feel wilted. There are SO many people here and all ages seem to enjoy their bicycles. I've never seen SO many bicycles. I'm glad Sunshine is parked safely in the garage at home. She doesn't know how easy her life is!
Tomorrow we'll take the train to Haarlem and line up at the green door for a tour of the ten Boom's house. I asked the young man at the hotel desk, "What's Haarlem like?" He replied, "Beautiful like Amsterdam, but smaller!" I can't wait!
Thank you for visiting today! By the way, what would you paint red?
