Before I leave the Dam I would like to share some other sights from there and beyond with you.
Twe Kanefas Bale 1632 - This was the sign over the the door to our apartment. I don't think I have ever lived anywhere so old before. Twe Kanefas Bale means 2 canvas bales, this is about as much info as I have managed to find out about it.
Beautiful morning light - the arches are lit only by the sun. Sometimes you are just given gifts.
Beyond the Dam -
On our way home we stopped at the fairytale Kasteel de Haar. There has been an a castle on this site since the 1300's however this is not the original as the castle has been destroyed and re-built several times. This is almost how it has looked since the 1600's however it fell into disrepair and refurbishment started again at the end of the 1800's. This newest magnificent refurb was completed in 1912.
Walking around the castle I noticed this not so graceful Swan. It checked out the water and then fell in head 1st. I couldn't stop laughing. It then redeemed itself with the beautiful display in the 3rd shot.
LOVE that bridge photo, stunning.
Wonderful pics, Dvora.

Thank you for sharing all those beautiful photos of Amsterdam! The glow of the morning sun under the bridge is just otherwoldly! What a gift to be walking by at the time. And I couldn't stop laughing at the goose of a swan you captured! It is so much like dancers -- ethereal on stage but I can't tell you how clutzy they/we are in daily life! xxx
