One morning in Amsterdam and it was quite damp and grey, so we decided that the best way to see the city would be a tour on a canal boat. Our houseboat was within walking distance of one of the canal boat stops so we rugged up and set off.
Gorgeous Girl enjoyed looking out the window.
I love this picture of her with her scarf.
Gorgeous Girl did what she always does, and made a friend,
while Mummy and Daddy took pictures of the beautiful buildings gliding by.
While in Amsterdam we partook of some traditional Dutch meals. I was very excited to see purple sauerkraut on the menu
as this is something I remember eating as a child (I grew up in a German speaking home). In fact I enjoyed it so much that I located some when we got home and there is now a bottle of purple sauerkraut sitting in my fridge. Gorgeous Girl is quite happy to eat it with me, but Gorgeous Man, not so much.
We also visited the zoo. Not something Gorgeous Man and I would have done on our own, but Gorgeous Girl had a wonderful time. She loved the animals and was most taken with these jumping platforms.
The little owl we bought in the zoo store has become a firm favourite and has been added to the menagerie of animals that sleep in her cot at night.
