Anyway off in the car again today, first shopping in the markets in Hoorn. Must admit they are fantastic markets and go on forever. good to walk through them and look at all the different things. There was one stall that caught my eye and I knew that I had to buy something there. Yes kids a whole stall full with salted licourice, heaven had come to me. Elly and I sorted a big bag each which we started to eat straight away. All so good.
Next destination was an old preserved windmill. Some history regarding this mill and the area. At the end of the 16th century a start was made in North Holland with draining the many lakes that were forever posing a threat to the surrounding land
Next stop Volendam, nothing special to do there except have a glass of wine and enjoy the scenery
Home again late afternoon, just in time for Wim to cook us another gormet dinner, which we enjoyed sitting by the open fire.
What a nice day we had.
