Artist's Description

Day one – Netherlands.
Arrived at 6.25am to a warm welcome, thanks to our lovely family. The welcome may have been warm but the temperature certainly wasn’t, especially to a bunch of Aussies coming from the summer and by 8:30am the sun was finally up.
We ventured out to Volendam, an old fishing village whose main industry now has got to be tourism.
Here you can get a lovely photo taken in authentic dutch costume of the whole family. We resisted the urge.
We brought postcards and the very friendly shop assistant sold us Guilder stamps to mail them with! ( Saw us coming a mile away ).
Time for a bite to eat, we couldn’t wait to eat croquettes, real dutch croquettes with plenty of mustard, yum!!
After this snack it was about 3:30pm and the sun was setting slowly over the harbour.
For us it was a surreal experience, something that we had never seen, felt or smelt ( they still smoke eels in Volendam) before.
I hope this picture can convey a little of what we experienced. It was fantastic.
