We’ll start with the Sydney Fish Markets. We’ve been here before. I’ve brought you here a couple of times in the past. It’s one of my many Happy Places, and I love sharing it with other people. On this trip, I shared it with my family, and now I’m sharing it with you.
If you’re a seafood eater you’ll understand just how enveloping and drool-worthy this place is. Would you like to know more?
Yep. Robinsons Bay. One of the many places we are blessed enough to consider home.
The silence was something that both Himself and I wished to reacquaint ourselves with. That night we sat there in silence, sipping on a nice red wine, munching our sandwiches, and contemplating the larger, and smaller questions of life. Would you like to know more?
Saturday was National Windmill Day. In order to appropriately celebrate this day we were going to get on our bikes and tour some of the eight windmills that are in the city limits of Amsterdam. As we had already been to the one that is open to the public, all the others were in our sights. As the day dawned like many typical Amsterdam days, cold and raining, we soon decided “Sod that for a game of soldiers”, and I took Himself off to the Museum instead.

Through the cold (12C) and the rain, I made my way via the number 24 tram to the Albert Cuypmarkt. As you get off the tram, it’s a fairly unassuming looking street.
It was a wonderful market. They seem to have a little bit of everything. There’s the organic food, beginning with the ever present cheese.
There were also stalls of every fruit and vegetable imaginable, and fish mongers.
There were sweets too. Poffertjes and Stroopwafels.
There were some delectable summer dresses which I would actually consider wearing!
Though with the weather the way it was, I wasn’t tempted to try them on right then and there!
And check out these gumboots with heels!
It was nice to see flowers in pots and growing, not just cut for vases from florists.
There really was a little bit of everything! (I want a blue one)
And of course, being Amsterdam, there were several bicycle stalls!
I can’t wait to start decorating and riding my bike!
I make many suggestions. Probably more than your average human. So when Himself surprises me and takes me up on one we end up with an unexpected Adventure to the Aquarium!
There is always something new and fresh to see, or animals that weren’t moving are.
There were big things,
and small things.
Aren’t sea dragons one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen?
Spot the stonefish!
And his three deadly mates.
Don’cha just love wobbegongs?
And I’m not sure if I missed it before or if it’s new, but having recently been there, I loved the Barrier Reef exhibit! It was very special to be able to say I’ve seen them in the wild
And today, a first for this blog. Just for you we have … moving picutres!!! First a cow …
And second, another deadly one, the scorpion fish!
Who was trying to evade my camera! Oh well.
Until next time, keep Adventuring!
