The buildings here below are the east Indian company warehouses down in the inner harbor. So many small icons, decorations and signs on the house. Notice how many small doors all over the fasade.  One is from 1606 and one house from 1618.IMG_9541IMG_9538

Regatta time

It was time for Regatta this weekend for Laser in Hoorn and it was a busy marina. As we are waiting on a spare part to arrive we have a great spot in the marina and it was so fun to see the sailors prepare and set sail out on the lake, they are really skill full I must say even though i still think it looks funny when grown up men and women are in these small boats as this was something we used to do as kid to learn how to sail. But it is fun and I understand why they do it. People from all over Europe was here to try and take the trophy. Let the best man or woman win! 🙂

 

Boat season

It has started and they are everywhere. 25 degrees Celsius today and everyone that has a boat was out today, the whole weekend will be the same. Here are a mix of boats you see in the Netherlands. There are thousands more and the marinas are full at night and empty in the daytime.
