Today we hopped in the car and went for a lovely drive. Rick wanted to see tulip fields , well they are everywhere at this time of the year , one field more colourful than the next. A great sight to see with so many various colours in each section. Our first stop was Egmond aan Zee, it used to be a little holiday village but now has grown to a big resort town. The original village has been kept so it is still nice to walk around
Next stop Den Oever which is on the other side of North Holland. It is the place where they build a dyke in order to hold back the ocean and create more land. A very interesting story as to how the Dutch managed all this water. It also seemed that my grandfather worked on this project, did not know that. Den Oever is also know for it's fresh fish. I can guarantee you that this is true. Bought some great herring there, both salt and sour and boy was it good to eat.
A very memorable day.
