Monnickendam

Last weekend Mr E's niece, Miss B, was in town. She came up for a long weekend in Amsterdam. Sadly, it rained the entire time. Such a shame! But, we tried to make the best of it. Saturday we hired a car and did a little mini tour of North Holland. First stop, Monnickendam.
Beautifully little village on coast of the Ijsselmeer. It's only about a 20 minute drive from Amsterdam.
Picture perfect. A nice Instagram image of a graphic from the side of a cheese trailer on the market I spied. Remembering those who were lost from the village.
Found these little display windows as we wandered back to the car. Only they've got the head of the elephant and dog mixed up. Oh dear. Know your tupperware people...
Just as we were heading back, the sun went behind a cloud, not to return for the rest of the day, and the heavens let rip some torrential rain. Again. We dried off with the car heater as we made out way to our next destinations, Volendam and Edam. By this time it was really horrid out. So I didn't take any photos in Volendam and Edam we just drown around. A tad miserable...but what can you do!
