On The Way to Gouda
Posted on May 24, 2015
We had brought a road map of the Netherlands with us from nearly 50 years ago with a few places circled. I had completely forgotten what the circles meant but some of them lay in our path to Gouda. We hunted them down and found windmills and charming villages. Here are some random photos of what we saw and liked.
Yes, windmills still exist.
Canals are a given. They will always exist in the Netherlands.
Wooden bridges, the same as those Van Gogh put on our collective map.
Olivier van Noort – first Dutchman to circumnavigate the world. A professional pirate.
A nice village, a good place for ice cream
Roberto’s ice cream shop
Classy door fixtures
Every town has a canal or two.
Just the thing to do on a warm day.
One of numerous silversmith shops
Another fine and well preserved windmill
Now we must get along to Gouda and see if we can find a cheese shop.
