breakfast room, then headed out to meet Lucy for our tour of North
Holland. Our first stop was Alkmaar, famous for it's cheese market.
(We bought pesto cheese and wasabi cheese) Then we headed up the
coast, saw the dunes and dykes and went for lunch in Schagen. We drove
around the top of North Holland, (lots of cows) visited the
Afsluitdijk Dam (a huge one with a road across it that reclaimed a lot
of land for Holland) and saw the difference in water levels at a lock.
(Thanks Lucy for the excellent tour!) On the way home in Amsterdam we
stopped for a giant cone of french fries and mayo. (Yummy)
