Friday on vacation

Today the weather was chillier, maybe ten degrees chillier, but still sunny and warm. There are so many treats about a vacation. Getting up a little later, for one. Enjoying time to do whatever, whenever is another. When given a number of options Calvin has been very clear about his wishes. He wants to see Dutch dancing—lots of it—and he wanted to go on a tour of the windmill. We did both of those things today. Windmill Island in Holland is home to a real Dutch windmill, brought all the way from the Netherlands and reassembled jigsaw style. It is also home to the only female Master Miller in all of America. After our tour today Calvin can tell you all of this and more.

And because it's vacation and we can do what we want, we enjoyed lunch at New Holland Brewery again today, followed by special chocolates from the Holland Peanut Store (all inadvertently timed around performances of Dutch Dance, which was perfect).

And when we got back from town it was warm enough to walk the beach down to the lighthouse, where we watched them dredge the channel a little further up.

Tomorrow promises rain, and spring vacation, Tulip Time even, just wouldn't be the same without it.

This is a great post. I grew up in Grand Haven, MI, so I know exactly where you were. The funny thing is, we are currently living in Germany and I had to read your post very closely to figure out if you were in the Netherlands or Holland, MI. They really look alike.

I just started a blog hop called I Saw it on Vacation. Hopefully it will become a geography resource for homeschoolers. It would be great if you would like to grab my button and link-up. Here's the link if you are interested.
