We spent one of our days at De Haan going on a "tour of trams cities", by train.  This is Ceri-Si‚n enjoying the Dutch countryside.  In 1999 she fitted nicely across the seats.

Our trip was really to visit Amsterdam, but I wanted to go a roundabout route and used the excuse of changing trains at Rotterdam and Utrecht for a quick look at their trams.  This is Amsterdam CS station a lovely building with trams outside.

Whilst in Amsterdam, the sight of thousands of half bikes and all those years pushing me on the tandem, Ceri-Si‚n got "Amsterdam HalfBike disease".  It is no wonder when she saw sights such as the multistory bike park at Amsterdam CS station.

As Amsterdam was very hot and humid Ceri-Si‚n, wanted to move on.  As we got back in to the station she looked at the departure board and "Daddy there's one of those ICE trains you wanted to photo, you go take a photo and I will look round the shops and meet you back here".  Ages and many photos later there is an announcement across the whole of the station "Will Stephen Dee father of Ceri-Si‚n  please go to the booking office where his daughter is waiting".  Oops naughty me!

Our second full day in De Haan we decided to go on a tandem ride.  But it was a scorcher and not a cloud to be seen.  The only place we could find shelter from the sun was a ride around Den Haag and Delft.   It was so hot even the track workers on the tram system had their parasols out!  This is the Delft end of the Den Haag tram route 1 with tram 3089.

In Delft we saw the smallest ferry we have seen in the Netherlands.  This was across a canal.
