Woke up in Rotterdam. Very modern cityscape. Exciting day planned with a guided tour of a family owned Dutch cheese making farm and the Kinderdijk windmills.
Rotterdam. Wonderful modern architecture. The building on the left reminds me of the Clinton Library/Museum in Little Rock, AR. One of the bridges is similar to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and another like the Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge in Boston.
A motor coach took us out to the farm land where the cattle are raised.
We toured a cheese farm, from the dairy cows to the finished product.
I brought home a couple of rounds.
A lovely home on one of the canals in Kinderdijk.
From the dairy farms we traveled to Kinderdijk for a guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are nineteen 18th century windmills in close proximity in this area.

Our ship caught up with us in Kinderdijk in time for lunch.
We had an afternoon of scenic cruising.
I spent most of the afternoon on the sun deck enjoying the perfect weather watching as the Dutch landscapes passed by.
Next stop Cologne, Germany.
