Volendam, Marken and Edam

We have had a very busy morning travelling...tram, train, plane and several more trains! I am having a bit of a rest this afternoon. We are in a nice hotel about a half an hour from Berlin. Bruce has finally managed to go for a ride and I am planning a nap or a read! Just thought I would catch up on my blog first. Yesterday the sky was blue so we headed to Volendam on the bus. It is a pretty seaside town.


 We caught one of the ferries above over to Marken. Marken is a very quaint town with an interesting history involving lots of water (like all of the Netherlands). We enjoyed hearing about its history at the little museum.
 There was some lovely old embroidery on display in the museum.



 We also caught the bus to Edam which was another lovely town with nice waterways and leaning houses.

Lovely photos. We haven't been to any of these quaint towns. Only got to see Amsterdam when we were there.
