From the boat

Day three in Amsterdam was a full day of sightseeing and canal exploration.

Breakfast

After a lazy breakfast in the hotel, we walked across the street to the Hop On / Hop Off Canal Tour docking area.

Grandma was excited. (That guy’s face, tho. He was a different kind of excited.)

The boat was half open and half closed, aka half freezing and half slightly-less-freezing.

Hop off

After maybe 45 minutes of floating about the canals, we got off in search of caffeine.

The Otherist

We passed by some quirky store fronts.

Hotel T

Then stumbled upon ‘T Hotel, a tiny little boutique hotel with a coffee shop in the lobby.

Bless.

The tentative plans for the day were to take the canal boat around and eventually stop by the Anne Frank House museum.

I would have loved to go inside, but the queue was unreal and I have the attention span of a baby goldfish.

Tulips

So instead we went to the Amsterdam Tulip Museum and looked at flowers instead.

WWII history < perennial, bulbous plants. (Not really, but let's pretend for my sanity.)

After getting our flower fill, we wandered the narrow streets in search of food.

Cute house
Greenwoods

I found this tiny little English cafe, Greenwoods, on Yelp. There was a bit of a wait, but it was well worth it.

I had the “Greenwoods Benedict” – poached eggs with avo, on top of chicken and housemade soda bread. Divine. Grandma had a classic club.

Autumn

After our late lunch, we walked off the food coma under the falling leaves.

(“Grandma, take my picture!”)

Back to the hotel

Then it was back to the canal boat and back to the hotel for some good ‘ole R&R.
