Headed up north for the weekend

No Cars Go

We went to Giethoorn, the Venice of the Netherlands, where one little section of the town consists of canals and homes only…no roads, no cars.

Just outside of Giethoorn there was a tractor parade with over 50 tractors. We drove by it and thought it was unusual to see so many after we saw about 10, but more kept on showing up. Bizarre. We asked Ms friend and he said, Yep, indeed, it WAS a parade of tractors. Some kind of tradition. Okay.

We visited some of Ms friends in and around Groningen, near where M grew up. Very beautiful up there and super close to the sea; which also meant about four degrees cooler than where we are. Nice to get home to the heat!
