King's Day bike ride

In order the escape the noise, busy-ness and general chaos of King's Day in the centre of Amsterdam, Matthijs and I went out biking.

We biked north of Amsterdam through Broek in Waterland to the 'island' of Marken and then back through Monnickendam.

The following are a few pictures taken in Marken, mostly taken around the fire tower (the white horse) on the coast:

Even on the coast of an island, one never escapes bike racks here in the Netherlands.
