The day began with a Continental breakfast. We then drove to a nearby swimming pool for a quick dip before driving to Alkmaar. We had a brief walk around the shops and a market. We then went to the cheese museum. There was some free samples and then you were taken through the making of cheese with some cheesy history thrown in. Some interesting exhibits and quite insightful in how cheese is produced. A perfect location for a cheese museum with the selection of famous cheeses made in the Netherlands. We had the chance to sample some Gouda and Edam. We bought some supplies in a supermarket then drove back to Hoorn. We then went to the funfair and ate from a food stand. The day ended with a few drinks and nibbles at our friends house before heading back to the B & B.
