The boat crew said goodby to our home for 7 days and traveled by cab to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport where we said our goodbys to members of the group. Dave and Sara caught a train to France, Lisa and Jim caught a plane to Stockholm and Linda and Phil stashed their belongings at the airport and caught a bus to Keukenhof Gardens to see the tulip displays. We found out earlier that the tulip displays in the fields were gone. The Netherlands has a couple of weeks of very warm spring weather so the tulips didn’t last long. When we arrived we found that the flowers at Keukenhof were still in full bloom. I can’t say enough about the experience so I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

More photos from Keukenhof can be found on my website.

After spending the afternoon at Keukenhof Gardens we returned to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to collect our packs. We then caught a bus that we hoped would take us to somewhere near our Airbnb. We had to walk a few blocks from the bus stop before finding it. We were just getting unpacked when someone opened the back door. It turned out it the husband of the woman who managed it. He didn’t realize we had checked in. The woman was mortified and turned out to be really nice. It was a great place to stay.
