On Monday after the Amsterdam National Maritime Museum we took a walk to the botanical gardens.

We toured their tropical houses, palm house, desert greenhouse, winding paths, ponds and butterfly house.

In the tropical house you could walk along the top on a narrow scaffold, it was cool!

J especially enjoyed the trip in the greenhouses and got some fun smelling fruity soap at the gift shop.

After our trip around the gardens and dodging the rain we took a boat cruise for an hour around the Amsterdam canals.

K is getting a bit tired after all those plants

It was your typical tourist cruise but we did learn some good things and it was nice and warm inside the covered boat. Looking forward to some dry weather on Tuesday.
