Day 8 - Amsterdam. Our First Day Out.. Van Gogh and Rijks Museum, a Canal Cruise, and more COFFEE!!!

We started with a ferry ride into town followed by a tram ride to the museum district.

Our first stop was the Van Gogh gallery.  Magnificent.  We there there for a few hours.

Next we headed over to the Rijks Museum.  This is Amsterdams answer to the Louve.  What an amazing three hour visit.  Rembrandt galore, the "Night Watch,", Vermeer, Van Gogh, Van Dyke, etc.

Next up was a canal cruise.  It was a great way to relax for an hour.

From there we split up, wandered the streets.

Feeding the pigeons.  Yuk!

We introduced Virginia to her first ganga experience.  She didn't stop talking for hours.  Then we headed out for dinner.  Big mistake.  We ordered everything on the menu at the Italian restaurant.

Back to our hotel by ferry with a grand light show from the music hall.
