Today Gitta and Paula drove us over the big Afsluitdyke! I've been wanting to see this! We stopped at the monument and took in the views.

We stopped a bit further along to have our lunch on the dyke. Very nice. Next a drive down through Friesland to ...

We went on the boat with Piet and Ans and Liesbeth to the beautiful old town/city of Alkmaar. The trip was about 1 hour by boat. We passed through a lock and travelled along the big canal - passed a couple of old wind mills, plenty of boats, some floating houses on the side of the canal in one part too. In Alkmaar we saw the traditional way of moving the cheese rounds with 2 men and a ...
