The Netherlands Pt. 9: The ZaanHopper

I know it has been a while since I posted pictures of my trip to The Netherlands but I just had to finish the “Ferocious” study and “Get Up and Glow”. I’ve put a lot of things on the back burner these last couple of weeks but hopefully for good reason. Now I want to share a journey down the Zaan River and the beautiful city of Zaandam ( which is currently under construction but once the canal is done it will be BEAUTIFUL YOU BETCHA!)

My sister lives in Womerveer along the banks of the Zaan River. The Zaan Hooper Ferry is a perfect way to explore the waterway!

The old gatehouses at the locks have been converted to apartments

Brenda and I finished our excursion to Zaandam by having coffee with missionary Judy Mensch! It was a perfect day!

  1. Hi Pastor J. thanks for sharing all of the beautiful photo’s,the Church and Hotel were my favorite.
    Love you and do have a joy filled day 😀

  2. The Intel Hotel looks like the house that Jack built – quite unique.
    I’m guessing Monet painted a picture of the house, not painted the house? (Sorry, couldn’t resist)
    Thanks for sharing your pics – lovely!
