It was Zundag* and we decided to go to Enkhuizen.

We rode to central station then caught Mum's second train from central station to Enkhuizen. It took about een* hour on the train until we arrived and the train didn't make a sound. Very different to the trains in Melbourne!

When we got there we found out that the town was right on the water. It had hundreds of boats and lots of cute houses that mum loved. Finally we decided to catch a ferry to this outside museum.

When we arrived at the museum we found that it was much like Sovereign Hill except it was about the Netherlands. First we arrived at a place where you could make your own rope. So Harry, Sam and I each made our own rope which we could keep. Next we went on a boat ride around the museum to see what we should see. It went for about half an hour and we had a person up the front who paddelled us along like in a gondola. Next we came across a old fashioned lolly shop where they had a stick of licorice that was literally a 'stick' similar to a twig from a tree. Finally we went to this place where we could dress up like people from the early days in the Netherlands.

We had "kippling" which is Dutch "fish ans chips" for tea sitting by the water looking at all these amazing boats.
