There are so many beautiful and well thought out museums in Amsterdam, and I’m continually taken aback by the diversity and depth of knowledge available to everyone. In our most recent weekend exploration we headed out to the Scheepvaartmuseum! In English, this is the Maritime Museum. Given the breadth and depth of the Dutch maritime history, we knew this was going to be an amazing experience!
The museum is housed in the old Arsenal building that has been repurposed and refurbished in a complete metamorphosis! Would you like to know more?
Going away for a week can really make you feel better about the world. You know?
In a city that won’t soon forget the last year and a half,
we sat and had coffee next to this little guy after experiencing a 5.8, and then an hour later a 6.0.
For giftmas we were safe, and had family around us. Highlight of my day was holding the 4month old and being the only one who could get him to go to sleep.
By Boxing Day we were on roads surrounded by rolling hills,
dotted with sheep and flowers.
Our aim was for a small French village.
Which we found.
I started a new circular shawl,
we went out on the boat,
there was a dolphin hunt,
fresh blue cod for lunch,
and perfect sunsets.
I hope your holidays are full of family and fun, and that the coming year is easier than the last one.
Happy New Years Eve everyone!
