    Default The town of no cheese

    Our last touring day we were in Volendam to take a side trip to Edam. My stepmother had gotten a migraine over night so she wasn't up to going out. Edam was a tiny town and very quaint. We were lucky enough to see a wedding procession and got to cheer on the bride as she made her way to the ceremony. There wasn't a whole of excitement in Edam. And as a side note, no one made cheese there. The farmer's who lived near the town used to make cheese and bring it into town with them to sell.





    After the walking tour of Edam we had a bit of time in Volendam to walk around. I managed to find a gold charm for my charm bracelet, which was a relief since most of what we had seen until then was silver and my bracelet is gold. I got a lovely little wooden shoe in 14k gold and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg so I was happy. The dock area in Volendam was very touristy. It was also very windy. At one point I thought I could imitate Mary Poppins and take flight.



    Back on the boat my stepmother had managed to recover somewhat. The crew was nice enough to get her some crackers and a banana. Her stomach is always iffy when she has a migraine so she didn't want to chance anything heavier.

    We sailed during lunch and headed back to Amsterdam.

    Wonderful pics, Megan, back-up camera or not. I visited with my Mom a few years ago but want to go back. I'm trying to convince DH to go. Perhaps your pictures will do the trick!

    Default Back in Amsterdam

    That afternoon we went on our canal cruise through the old city.



    Here is a close up of one of the famous bike parkades.



    And the so called Dancing Houses of Amsterdam. They tilt because they are built on wooden pilings. I guess they help hold each other up.



    We passed the Anne Frank House and the line up was huge.



    The original plan for the day had us walking down there from the dock and going in. Plan B happened when I woke up with a miserable cold and we saw the line up. That plan called for going back to the boat and drinking a lot of tea.
