Next we were off to the nearby town of The Hague, which is the seat of government for the Netherlands. We had a short tour of the governmental buildings then some of us visited a beautiful museum called Mauritshuis (Maurits House). It was filled with many beautiful paintings. Even though it is a relatively small museum the art work on exhibition is wonderful as is the house. As we left the haag we made a quick stop in front of the peace palace. Beautiful! Then on to the seaside town of Scheveningen where we had free time to wander the board walk, shop and have dinner. Some of us were even bold enough to take off our shoes, roll up our pant legs and put our feet into the cold water of the North Sea. After all this sightseeing we returned to our hotel where 14 of the group went to the bar, where Kelli had reserved a good sized area, and they played Phase 10 again. I stayed in the room to update the blog and hopefully get a few pictures linked from my .Mac web page so that you all can see them. I have tons of pictures but have only put a few up for viewing so you wouldn't get too bored.
Thanks for stopping by.
