All week before we sailed I checked the weather forecast and every site said the same thing rain on Tuesday, sunny on Wednesday, rain on Thursday . Now that was fine by us as Wednesday was the day we were going to be walking around Amsterdam.
It was raining when we left Newcastle and the crossing was choppy to say the least . Lots of travel sickness tablets being past around which didn't really work in my case !
On arrival in Amsterdam Port it was still raining but when we actually came to the city centre it had stopped , thank goodness for that . So we set off for the flower market but half way down guess what ... yep, you guessed it , the heavens opened - so much for weather forecasts!
We made the most of it though, no choice really . I managed to find the way back to the old square that we had stumbled upon last time we were here. Still peaceful considering it's in the heart of the shopping district .
Don't think we needed any more water thank you Milo.
The boys still really enjoyed it though as the friends we went with also have two boys , they are slightly older than our two but they still get on really well.
I had wanted to take loads of photo's and do some really big posts but it's not to be I'm sorry . I did take quite a few pictures but they didn't come out so good with the weather being so terrible.
I'm going to leave you with these few because I just loved the red shutters .
