Taking time off from house renovations
I managed a trip to the beautiful city of Amsterdam.  
Wow! what a treat for the senses that was.......such a cool and interesting place. 

Lots of bikes....

a bit of culture...... 
inspirational images at the exhibitions of photographer Vivian Maier 
and painter Marlene Dumas
then onto an emotive visit to Anne Frank's house.

House shopping at Weldadd, Raw Materials and Sissy Boy


 Seasonal vegetables and herbs at the local market.

stopping to look at the graffiti...

and more on the pavements.... (translated means 'dogs must poo in the gutter')
This probably accounts for the reason Amsterdam is clean and not smelly!!!

and finally, 
stunning food at De Kas restaurant located in the impressive renovated 1926 greenhouse. 
Here they grow their own Mediterranean vegetables, herbs and edible flowers,
along with seasonal vegetables they harvest on their farmland in the Beemster area. 
Simply healthy, gorgeous food.
