Sunday I travelled to Voorburg and Hester's family took me on a drive to Gouda and to see the polders and windmills.
These first few pictures are of the town of Gouda.

The polders are the low-lying areas protected by dikes. Narrow roads run on the dikes. This is also an area of the Netherlands with lots of windmills.

The traditional treat for King's day is the Tompouce, iced orange in honor of the House of Orange.
On Monday Hester, Marius and I went to Keukenhof. We rented bikes and rode through the tulip fields and also visited the park. It was a beautiful day!
