Today was a check marked off the bucket list. We took a tour on a bus and first visited the Keukenhof Gardens where they have every tulip you could ever hope to imagine plus many other beautiful plants and flowers. No matter which direction you looked, there was something new and breathtaking to see. Will not explain most of the pictures, as they will speak for themselves.
|Does this just scream tourist?|
|Nonette tried her luck on a short zip line.|
|These are the actual fields where they grow the tulip bulbs for retail markets.|
|We watched a demonstration on making clogs, or wooden shoes. They are made out of popular wood and are worn because the ground is so wet and boggy. They keep your feet dry. They are still worn today by many that work the land.|
|Supposedly the wooden shoes are very comfortable.|
|We also toured a cheese factory.|
