Visiting Keukenhof

This past weekend, our family took a trip to the famous gardens of Keukenhof. Coming from Utrecht, we took the train to Amsterdam and then the ferry across the channel to “This is Holland” where we had bought excursion tickets including a boat tour of the nearby lakes and windmills used to pump the water and keep the land dry. The canal boat ride in the Kager lakes and around the surrounding islands provided a great view of local houses and the classic windmills the Netherlands is so known for.
