The area also included footpaths, canals, and pedestrian bridges.
Here's another windmill, and still another with its own dock, with others in the background, and two more.
We were later taken to Amstelpark, where sheep and birds of various species coexist peacefully.
Across the street from the birds and sheep was, you guessed it, another wind mill.
We were later given a boat ride on some of Amsterdam's canals. This bridge is the first of seven which allegedly go over the section of canal beginning here.
Our accommodations were themselves on a ship, of a type which is permitted to sail on inland waterways (canals, rivers and lakes), but not legally allowed on the ocean. This provides the convenience of having to unpack only once during the trip, and allows coordination with local buses that bring us to our specific destinations. But as we shall see, some places require even more logistic coordination.
