What a fabulous day... It was so nice to see my friends Aart & Ellen, made our day! I was out on the outer decks way too early, around 4:15 am. That is a bit early, even for me. I was there to see us successfully negotiate the lock and enter the canals leading us to Amsterdam. It has been 38 years since I was last in Amsterdam.... boy was I young! Once we arrived, we left the ship and hooked up with Aart & Ellen and were on our way. We got passes for the hop on hop off boats & buses so we could explore Amsterdam far & wide.... It was a great day. Now it is time to do a little blog work before we go out for the evening.... perfect day!
