Pond in Zaandam

Zaandam on the River Zaan not far from Amsterdam.  It is most famous for paintings of houses by Monet when he lived there, and the chocolate factories, of which one remains flooding the area with its lovely aroma.  Here’s a scene from near where we lived.

    • This and “Geithoorn” are indeed are stylistically distinct. It’s an approach that seemed to make sense given the scenery. I might end up doing more of this as we spend another summer on a boat in Holland.
