Dutch Fishing Villages

While in Amsterdam last summer Sarah and I travelled by bus to some of the fishing villages.  This is Volendam on the Markermeer Lake, Northeast of Amsterdam.  We loved it here, and spent quite a bit of time exploring it.  

It was interesting to see how they live here, as we walked along the back side of the houses.

Isn’t it beautiful?  We also stepped inside a museum that displayed some of the traditional clothing from this region in days gone by.  Really special!
