April, 2015 - ENKHUIZEN, HOLLAND

Enkuizen is home to the world class Zuiderzee Outdoor Museum.  I do not think I have enjoyed a museum this much since Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, USA.  The museum traces the history of the working class in the area.


Postcard perfect.











Interior decor.













High tech transport.

Fashion show:








Tea for two.


Bedtime Story:





Cupboard bed.  Two adults, with a baby in a cradle across their feet slept here.  Adults slept in the sitting position.  Often children slept in the space below.  Very cosy.


Cradle at foot of cupboard bed.


















 

 

James Bond Trivia:


This yacht was owned after the war by the British Agent 007, who had reported to Ian Fleming during WWII.

April, 2015 - ART ON THE MALECON - HOORN BREAKWATER

We went on an evening walk and happened upon a path that followed the breakwater.  The entire path is bounded by sculptures.  A very pleasant surprise.

Waiting for her lover to return from the sea.  Who can it be?





Blue and green should never be seen, except inside the washing machine.

Could this be who she is waiting for?
