TRAMS and BRIDGES and Such Things

My new header is a fountain in Irvine Center where we used to shop when living in Southern California (own photo)

WEEKLY BLURB: As in my previous posts of the Open Air Museum in the Netherlands, close to Arnhem, near the German border. Not only buildings and living conditions of the previous centuries, but also things to eat back then – such as candy, pastries, breads, next to today’s fast-food. Also, games, and skills like weaving, black smith, farming, wood logging, etc. A great way for kids to learn about history.

THE GOOD: & Sky Watch, Pink Sat. & Good Fences). Draw bridge. Since Holland was originally 3/4 or more water, you see  many canals and bridges. Front gables of the roofs  17th-18th century. Look up  on Google “Zaanse Schans” if you like to see more of this area

  3. Hi Jesh, Thanks for joiing Blue Monday. We were in the Netherlands while on a Riverboat vacation up the Rhine. We went to the World War II Museum honoring soldiers who saved the Netherlands from Germany. They featurd the Americans as they parachuted from the sky landing in the Netherlands. Our guide was 7 when that happened and his story was an honor to America.
    I love your whole post of ‘Seasons.’ The bridge, the windmil, and the feeding trough are my faves.. The photo with the water and the windmill is a great photo op. Good eye Jesh.
    Happy blue Monday.
