Visiting Edam

Today we arrived in the most picturesque place I have ever seen!
In the early 1900's, Edam produced and sold over 250,000 rounds of cheese each year. Although Edam is still best known for its cheese, the town is quite lovely and enjoyable for a walking tour.

The colorful streets of Edam made me feel like I was walking through the pages of a storybook.


City Hall
Edam is built around a network of canals that were once part of 18th century Edam's busy whaling port with over 30 shipyards.


And of course there are windmills!!
