Two weeks of wonderful sunshine here in London, and then a trip with work colleagues to Amsterdam…. pouring rain!! However, it cleared towards the middle of the day, and it turned out to be a great time on a boat, going through the Amsterdam canals.
Although I have been to Amsterdam many times before, I had never had the opportunity to see some of the little hidden courtyards – originally mostly built out of charity by organisations or individuals – that can be found in the centre of the city. Here is a picture taken in such a courtyard.
It was a bit too late for shopping by the time we came off the boat, but I just had to take a picture of this cheese store…. Really makes me want to go back some time soon (sigh). Besides… there must be some nice little yarn and crafts stores just waiting to be explored.
