Picturesque Hoorn

We spent Easter day in Hoorn (north of Amsterdam) taking a walking tour of the cobblestone streets and traditional Dutch row houses. Since it was Easter and a Sunday, everything was closed in the morning, but thankfully a few shops opened up after lunch. It was absolutely the most picturesque town you've ever seen!  Part of our morning outing included coffee and cake hosted by a local family in their home. Our family was a divorced mom with a high school aged daughter who were so lovely and very gracious to answer all our questions about Dutch life. It was the highlight of our day!

Judging from your neck scarves, it looks a bit chilly there. Chilly here too making for a damp Easter.

I see that Chris found a tuxedo kitty! You'll have to buy a tin of kippers if this keeps up!
