No Chocolate?

So I decided to take the bus to Marken, an island not far from Amsterdam. I hadn’t found a chocolate shop to review but surely there must be one in the little harbour, and it was a nice day so why not hav a little adventure.

This is the view while waiting for the bus.

I was hoping to get the seat in the front but was pipped at the post and lost it to a woman who READ THE PAPER instead of enjoying the view.

002This was my view.

003Well, that’ll teach me for being polite. But is was a nice ride anyway and in less than an hour we arrived. Stepping off the bus, under blue skies, the first stop was the shoe factory (the wooden type of course!).

As close as I am likely to get (1 foot off the shore)

022But it was getting late and cold, the blue skies had gone.
