Boats Have Many Looks!

I fell in love with Amsterdam when we visited last fall.  It is a city of many surprises and looks.  We spent our visit on foot, except for the short canal tour, and enjoyed exploring and sampling the menus at many restaurants.

The waterways wind through the city with each one mooring many colorful, beautiful boats.  Take a look...


Boats are for traveling...


 Boats are for living...




Sometimes there is no place to moor your boat...I guess one would call this double mooring!


Boats are for recreation...and sometimes, boats are forgotten...




I am anxious to visit Amsterdam again.  We had a wonderful trip!

I am participating in Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.

  7. Love your photos of Amsterdam. The reflection on the water was just beautiful. Some of those sights look so familiar to me, as I traveled there just a few years ago. What a wonderful place to visit.
